Your not alone Wolfgang many others had other concerns or simply just rejected the feature of Onedrive and preferred Dropbox or what ever it's called I forget :/

Either way you slice it personal preference has to rule the day use it or not and or install it or not,
Personally I believe all of these sort of apps should be in the app store awaiting a download "if" a person wants them.

If it's truly a windows feature how about simply listing them in windows feature on or off = a wild idea indeed

Yesterday I was with friends who bought a new 8.1 PC. I installed the system for them with a local account. Then they wanted to use the calendar app - but that does not work without a MS account. Why?

Those people have that one and only computer and all they want is a calendar on that computer. They have no other MS gear. Why would MS force them to have an account for such a small application.

Calendars as far as I'm aware of have always been associated with either an email program or an online email service
Apps are just another way to get to the websites service :/

You were wrong Wolfgang, I am not going to tell you about the settings because you are right; it really is so incredibly complicated to change the sync settings that most users couldn't do it. It would need a several pages long tutorial with screenshots and videos to show how to change the sync settings in Windows 10. The sync section in PC Settings really could not be more complicated. I can understand you very well, who on earth could manage this:

OneDrive has to be set up in order to sync anything. When set up, it by default syncs nothing so that's one thing Wolfgang should not be worried about: OneDrive only syncs the data you tell it to sync, only when you tell it to sync. Really, by default nothing is synced.

Simple.

Control over everything you do on your computer.

No reason to apologize. I simply admitted how extremely diffucult task it is and how deep in core of the Windows the sync settings are buried. Changing them is a task which could only be managed by professionals and that's why no normal user should ever try it.

Hello guys, What was the worse OS that you have used? (not just windows) For me, it was Windows ME, to me it was just Windows 98 with some big updates. But I say that system restore was a good idea.
