    Microsoft OneDrive App Sign-In Problem

    Hello, and I have a problem signing into an existing OneDrive Personal Account that had been working fine up until about a week ago. I do have latest updates for Microsoft Edge & Mozilla Firefox Browsers installed on this laptop. I can provide a little more info, but please look at screenshots (in order from top to bottom) of what is happening.

    Even if you get logged in the version of OneDrive for W7 is now only on backup mode and doesn't function like it used to as MS has ended support.
    As a work-around I have installed an older version of OneDrive (21.220.1024.0005 is the one im using) and before running the program after installing (you may want to disable the internet as soon as it's installed to stop it auto updating) turn off OneDrive updates in the task scheduler program so that it can remain on the version you installed and then will function as normal and give you full access to your OneDrive.

    The version I am running is the exact same as what you wrote. The problem seemed to have happened AFTER I uninstalled my Internet Explorer 11 and then I.E. 8. I do have Edge Browser installed. Do you have any more suggestions?

    It looks like it updated itself then, as (from memory) the setup screen you posted doesnt show the 'backup your files' stuff on that version's setup pages. I believe that only activated in newer versions from March1st. I woud uninstall it, and install again but at the end of setup turn off the internet and disable the onedrive update task from task scheduler.

    I think your other problem is because you removed IE. A lot of MS programs for Windows 7 require IE to function properly as they use some of it's background functionality to access the internet for logins etc. Enable IE again then let it update to the latest version. Set your usual browser to default in control panel and then forget IE is there. I have it on my machine and it very rarely shows it's ugly face
