Microsoft has published a new document on its website, explaining how to remove OneDrive from Windows 11.

Neowin reported that a recent Microsoft support document includes a link with instructions on how to “Turn off, disable, or uninstall OneDrive.” Although the document is not new, Microsoft made some updates to it earlier this year, and one of the updates is noteworthy.

First, a separate section was added to explain how to unlink OneDrive. According to the company, this is the simplest solution for those who don’t want to use OneDrive.

If you are a Windows 10/11 user and wish to remove OneDrive from your system, you can easily do so by following these steps. Firstly, click on the Start button and search for “Programs”. From the list of results, select “Add or Remove Programs”. In the “Apps & Features” section, locate and select “Microsoft OneDrive” and then click on “Uninstall”. If prompted, enter the password or confirm as required.

This change is reportedly a result of updates made to adhere to the European Union’s (EU) Digital Market Act (DMA) which came into effect on March 6. Last November, Microsoft announced its plan to comply with EU law. To comply with regulations related to the DMA, Microsoft has implemented the Windows 11 system for users in the European Economic Area (EEA). As per the new system, users can uninstall major software like Edge and Bing, as well as some pre-installed apps. Additionally, they can disable recommendations and advertising content.
