How To Remove Onedrive From Excel

OneDrive operates as a storage service in the cloud, enabling file access from any location. Nevertheless, if OneDrive isn’t something you use, or if you’d rather store your files on your device, it’s possible to eliminate its integration with Excel. Follow these instructions to achieve this:

Step 1: Open Excel

First, open Excel and go to the “File” tab in the top left corner of the screen.

Step 2: Click on Options

Click on “Options” in the left-hand column of the drop-down menu. This will take you to the Excel options window.

Step 3: Select Add-Ins

In the Excel options window, select “Add-Ins” from the left-hand column. This will display a list of all the add-ins currently installed in Excel.

Step 4: Remove OneDrive

Scroll through the list of add-ins until you find “OneDrive for Business” or “OneDrive (Personal)”. Click on it and select “Remove” from the drop-down menu. This will remove OneDrive from Excel.

Step 5: Save Changes

Once you have removed OneDrive, click “OK” to save your changes and close the Excel options window. You should now be able to use Excel without OneDrive.


Removing OneDrive from Excel is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. By following these instructions, you can easily remove OneDrive and continue using Excel as usual.
