How to remove groove / onedrive for business using office deployment + how to remove onedrive shortcut. Worked for me. I'm not taking any responsibility – proceed at your own risk. Logout all users that might be using it. Open the configuration xml you used to install office and add <ExcludeApp ID="Groove"/> <ExcludeApp ID="OneDrive"/> Within the <product> like this: <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail"> <Language ID="he-il" /> <ExcludeApp ID="Groove"/> <ExcludeApp ID="OneDrive"/> </Product> CMD as admin and run setup.exe /configure yourconfigfilename.xml Then WAIT for it to finish. It won't load a setup screen and might seem unresponsive or as if it's not doing anything, but it does. After groove/onedrive for business is removed – you'll have an ugly shortcut in file explorer. To remove it run regedit if search for {3BA2E6B1-A6A1-CCF6-942C-D370B14D842B} And change System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree value from 1 to 0. {3BA2E6B1-A6A1-CCF6-942C-D370B14D842B} could be a different value so just search for something that has the following "subfolders": DefaultIcon InProcServer32 Instance ShellFolder Its supposed to look like this: Good luck.
