    Hi Erica,

    I don’t have the “Remove” links beside the connected services. I wanted to remove “Sites – companyname”
    It cannot be a permission problem because I’m the administrator of the Office365 portal.

    Thanks.

    Hi.
    I have the same issue. I want to remove the “save as” onedrive for business, and sharepoint options in the office programs.
    I am using Office365 and is global administrator, so I can set any option

    @Erica: Where do I check for these default connected services?

    @Jason: How did you remove the onedrive?

    There is a workaround for this, you can create a DWORD entry with the name “OnlineStorage” in the registry under:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Internet\
    with the value “3” (3: All Microsoft Online Locations are hidden).

    Only downside you have to create this entry for every user on every computer.

    THIS WAS AWESOME, every other thread was telling me to go into local group policy editor to remove these accounts. Man, what a run around. Thank you. Simple and easy, as it should be. I will share where needed.
