Windows 10 – Hide ‘Personal’ OneDrive from explorer window

When you or your client is using OneDrive for Business it might be hard to explain the difference between ‘OneDrive’ and ‘OneDrive for Business’ in the Explorer view, or you just want to remove it from the list.

To do this you have to make a change in the Windows registry.

# Windows+R type; regedit
# Browse to \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\
# Look for the Key with the value ‘OneDrive’ or ‘OneDrive – Personal’ it probally will be key {018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}.
# Now go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID and find the {018D…} key, change the ‘System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree’ from 1 to 0.
# Save and your are done.

Windows 10 PC / Laptop goes randomly to sleep mode.

When your experience your PC or laptop going into sleep mode randomly there a lot of things that could cause that. What resolved the issue for me is this:

# Open command prompt as administrator and run the following command:
REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\7bc4a2f9-d8fc-4469-b07b-33eb785aaca0" /v Attributes /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f

# Restart the ‘explorer.exe’ process via task manager.

# Go to your energy settings and edit the power plan you are currently using. Choose ‘change advance power settings’ and go to the sleep section.
Expand the ‘System unattended sleep timeout’ and change the 2 minutes to 0, or whatever.
