OneDrive For Business: Change Library name and Remove from Favorites RRS feed

  • Question

  • I posted this previously in the OneDrive forum but was advised to redirect here...

    I have an account on OneDrive for Business.  After synching, I see a OneDrive header in Windows explorer.  I didn't like the name Windows gave it so I changed it to something else.  I did not have this choice when initially setting up Sync from Outlook Online.  I did this by opening the "OneDrive" tree, selecting the library and changed the name.

    But after re-boot, I find that while Windows kept the new library name in the OneDrive tree, it has not only AUTOMATICALLY added the library to my Favorites, but it kept the ORIGINAL name, not the name I changed it to! If I delete OneDrive folder from my Favorites, WIndows just keeps automatically adding it again.

    How do I get it to stop that?  I do not want any OneDrive folders to appear in Favorites, especially if it's going to keep using the original name.
