    Hi all,

    I have a W10 V21H2 PC that was set up with a Local account not tied to a Microsoft account.

    I have installed an Office 365 subscription that is under my wife’s Microsoft account. This subscription allows up to 5 PC’s to install Office 365.

    My wife’s has a separate PC (W10, 21H2) with the same Office 365 subscription, and her PC syncs with her OneDrive.

    When I open any office document (Word, Excel, etc.) I see documents that have been updated on my  wife’s OneDrive account. I have disabled OneDrive (I don’t use it at all) on My PC and cleared everything I can find, but I still see these documents and can even open them.

    How can I further disable the connection to my wife’s OneDrive account through Office?

    Thanks in Advance!

    Regards, Steve

      You can’t, because you’re using her Personal subscription:

      Microsoft 365 Personal — For one person
      Microsoft 365 Personal

      A Family subscription is only $30 per year extra:

      Microsoft 365 Family — For one to six people
      Microsoft 365 Family

      Windows 11 Pro version 22H2 build 22621.2359 + Microsoft 365 + Edge

      Try signing out of onedrive. Disable it from startup. Open word go to options > Save set to save to computer by default. Then go to account privacy settings and disable everything. That has worked for m without issues.

      Never Say Never
