How to prevent OneDrive wizard to show the KnownFolders select backup on setup?

SenhorDolas 1,126 Reputation points


I am trying to configure my AVD with Win11 multi-session Desktops with OneDrive where the OneDrive sync app does not auto-sign in. (I don't want all users to be able to use OneDrive right now, just a few selected)

  • Configured OneDrive GPO has pics:

Computer Configuration

User's image

User Configuration

  • User's image


When doing a first login, I see the client is offline (not logged in)

User's image

Then I log in:

User's image

User is not able to change the default location as set on the GPO - Great > Next

User's image

But I get this box where the user can select/deselect known folders

User's image

Not sure why as I have set to Enabled the GPO setting "Silent move Windows known folders to OneDrive" in Computer Configuration

Is there a way to disable this selection?

Thanks, M

    Yes, the Win11 machine is AAD joined.

    Am I missing a policy setting somewhere?

    To anyone who comes across this issue.

    It's not possible to remove that window or user call to action.

    However GPO settings will still apply even if a user says no to all.
