Hello Calhigh1,

 

I have no idea why Likilesh posted a copy/paste of what wb2001 already gave information to.  

But if you have trouble getting it to work, Its because the Group Policy Editor method will not work on a Windows 10 Home edition OS, its only available on the Pro version.

 

But the link above that wb2001 gave has other information linked that will work to remove the MS OneDrive program.

 

If you do not wish to remove the program, you can also un-sync any folders linked in the OneDrive settings. Here is Microsoft's information on how to do this...

How to turn off or uninstall OneDrive

Scroll down to Hide OneDrive in Windows 10
