Like ever ever! Want to uninstall the OneDrive client on Windows 10 S? Do know that this is a one-way trip. A bit like that Hotel California song, you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave!
Only in this case, you can never enter again!
That’s the only thing you need to keep in mind before you get started with removing the official OneDrive client from your Windows 10 S powered machine — like that shiny new Surface Laptop. This nifty little piece of software is used to sync files from Microsoft’s cloud service.
Provided you use OneDrive.
If you are, there is little, if any, reason to uninstall the app. Its removal only frees up a little bit of space, and there is no sense in removing it, unless you really don’t plan on using OneDrive.
Because while you an uninstall the client on Windows 10 S, you cannot download and reinstall it.
Not unless you do a factory reset of your laptop, or upgrade to Windows 10 Pro to get the functionality of installing applications and software from any source you please. There is no other way to get this official program back into the operating system.
It all comes down to how Windows 10 S has been designed.
Microsoft thinks of this as an additional layer of security for the operating platform, and hence, only ships Windows 10 S powered devices with a small selection of preinstalled non-Store apps.
Same goes for all other such applications.
Lose it, and that’s that.
You have been warned.
