How to delete pics from app/storage on envy laptop, but not One Drive

HP Recommended
HP Envy x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I keep receiving a message when I attempt to clear up storage on my laptop by deleting pictures.  It asks me if I want to "Delete this file? This includes all exact duplicates here and on One Drive."  I don't want to delete any pics from One Drive.  Just clear up all the space on my laptop.  How can I do this??

Do you want to delete them from your laptop permanently?

I don't use Cloud Storage as I find the whole process to be unreliable and risk -- but you need to check your OneDrive settings as I believe that with Win10, it does mirroring automatically -- and if you delete the files locally, it might also delete them from OneDrive and vice-versa.
