How to hide OneDrive from Windows 10 File Explorer

I finally found an easy and elegant solution to hiding that annoying OneDrive icon from the side bar of File Explorer in Windows 10:

regedit -> search for «IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree» (or browse to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}, but searching is way faster), and set that to 0.

And since I love using PowerShell for stuff these days, here’s how you do it from the command line:

New-PSDrive -PSProvider registry -Root HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT -Name HKCR
Set-ItemProperty HKCR:\CLSID\`{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6`} -Name System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree -Value 0

  1. The PowerShell command didn’t work for me on a fresh install. I got the following error message:

    Set-ItemProperty : Cannot find path ‘HKCR:\CLSID{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}’ because it does not exist.
