Microsoft OneDrive does not run

Onedrive does not run. It does not show up in the system tray nor in task manager. Reinstalling does not help and neither does deleting every single related file.

Check if the following registry key is present and set to 0. If set to 1: there's your problem. Just change the value and it should work right away, without reboot.

Or run the following Powershell command in an elevated shell:

Set-ItemProperty -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\OneDrive' -Name DisableFileSyncNGSC -Value 0

If the key doesn't exist it is equal to 0 in practice.

Not included is the wireless: 2 Sophos AP15 Access Points, 7 phones, 1 tablet, 5 laptops. Additionally there's 9 Philips Hue lamps, 2 switches and 3 movement detectors.

Cleaning up Windows Explorer

Do you hate the default Windows shortcuts in Windows Explorer as much as I do, yet you don't want to switch to Total Commander for some reason? Here's a little script I wrote in Powershell to get a clean layout like this:

There are several how-to's on the net to remove single objects, whether through executing a registry file or by accessing the registry directly. Often the latter, as some settings can only be changed by TrustedInstaller. This script uses a real hack that I probably shouldn't share in the first place, courtesy of tirannido, to impersonate TrustedInstaller and subsequently edit the registry - which is not only more practical than manually taking ownership but also cleaner and therefore safer in the long run.

De YellowOnline Mini is nu in Beta met codenaam Josephine. Vermoedelijk ergens in augustus volgt de echte release. Voorlopig zijn er nog geen bugs gevonden. De Heart™, Brains™, Lungs™, Spine™ en Limb™ modules zijn aanwezig. De Penis™ module is waarschijnlijk voor een volgende versie van het product.

Dank aan de medeontwikkelaar Maude_X die al 14 weken non-stop aan het compilen is.
