Hi, I'm attempting to setup a small organisation, and one thing they need is really good file sharing, and Dropbox is by far the best solution for their needs.  They have no need for OneDrive, as Dropbox will do everything they need.


I have been able to remove OneDrive from Windows and it no longer appears in explorer etc, however I have not found a way to remove OneDrive Personal from the office 365 applications, and as its at the top of the list when saving a file, I can see issues arsing, even through Dropbox will also be on the list (right below OneDrive).  The preference would be to remove OneDrive Personal from Office365 Office apps completely, but I have as yet found no way to do this.  Googling keeps referring to OneDrive for Business, which they aren't using.




Does anyone know a way to remove (or hide) the OneDrive personal from the Office apps. (I can see that MS may not allow this as they may see it being there as way to encourage OneDrive uptake, but personally its just going to cause this, and I suspect other organisations, that choice not to use OneDrive frustration).


I'm hoping I'm just missing something simple/obvious....

Try this.  Assuming Office 2016






Add DWORD: SignInOptions


Value: 2




I assume use HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE instead for all users
