SOLVED: How to Reactivate OneDrive on Windows 10

March 3rd, 2017 by steve

For a long time, I didn’t use OneDrive. I had a pretty big Dropbox, so I saw no value in it. So I somehow deactivated it — so that it didn’t even appear in my system tray. It was as though it had been uninstalled. How could I reinstall it?

However, when I had a recent technical difficulty with Dropbox, and saw how slow their support was, I realized I should have a backup cloud system in place.

But it appeared that OneDrive wasn’t working on my Windows 10 machine. I wanted to reinstall it, but it turns out you can’t. It’s part of Windows 10, so there’s no install / uninstall option.

And running OneDrive from the Search Bar on Windows didn’t help.

Finally, I solved it.

OneDrive came up and asked for my credentials and let me choose where to install the OneDrive folder.

Solved!
