Size:  12.4 KB but it is still in the navigation window. Me and computers are not getting along. Dell and Microsoft have been over 2 weeks now trying to resolve a task bar issue. The bar is constantly up in the primary monitor but autohides correctly in the secondary monitor. I try what you suggested, but I have NO faith in win 8.1.

    I just reread and realized I misunderstood your previous email. I am the administrator but do not think I aam logging as such, I Googled it but none of this instructions matched what I get on my computer. They said to right click on computer which I do not have but believe This PC is the same thing I clicked on Manage and got the Computyer Management window but I get System Tools, Storage, Services and Applications instead of a list of registered users. The other option was to click on the all apps icon but I do not have that option. When I open to all the apps I do have command prompt but when I click it, I get the window not the screenshot they are showing with "Run as administrator" being an option.

    I have never had the many issue with another machine. I just retried OneDrive Integration in Windows 8.1 - Enable or Disable. This time it worked and I was able to save the file to the desk top, ran it and now onedrive is not showing in either window pane. Last time I did not get the save option. So this was a success! The more sophisticated these machines get the more bugs arise...

    Windows 8.1


    Gents, I have a Surface Pro 3 on a work domain. I have local admin rights, but not domain admin. I have OneDrive syncing between my Surface Pro 3, cloud and a desktop computer which is NOT on the work domain.. Syncing with cloud and desktop work fine. However, my Surface on the domain syncs folders but not files.

    I cannot change any settings from the Win 8 OneDrive app. I have "Access all my OneDrive files offline" turned ON, but no files sync. I ran the OneDrive diagnostic tool and it said I have a problem with permissions. I'd like to first try reinstalling OneDrive.

    Would the .reg files listed her actually reset permissions, or does it just disable/re-enable OneDrive? Any other suggestions?

    Hello Will, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Sorry, but no. The .reg files will only add or remove OneDrive from the navigation pane, and nothing else.

    I would recommend to create a new thread in the "Network" forum area to see what we can do to help there.

    I had tried everything in this thread, plus a number of suggestions from other areas, with no success, and then I came across this:-

    Worked liked a charm.

    Yep, that's the same as our tutorial below to disable OneDrive integration in Windows 8.1 instead.

    Hi Brink - What exactly do you mean in Option 1 by " If you have not already, you will need to take ownership for Administrators first?" Your ownership tutorial shows many ways to take ownership, so I'm not sure which exactly you are referring to. I using an individual/admin account in a newly reinstalled Win 8.1 Pro x64 set up. Thanks,

    Hello highstream,

    You would use step 3 in OPTION FOUR for a registry key.
