    Multi-User sign-on to OneDrive

    I f I have three users on a machine, and I use OneDrive to share data between them. I have a few times ended up with OneDrive telling me I have reached the max number of users -- I suppose because I don't log each user out?

    Since this is one machine, is there a way to automatically log on and off of OneDrive via sign on and sign off?

    Check me on this, you can select OneDrive options to log on with sign on, but I think you have to manually exit OneDrive (right-click the icon and select Exit).
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Chuck,

    Why use One Drive at all? You could just place the files in the Public Folder (C:\Users\Public\Public Documents) on the machine. Unless, of course, there are more than three users.

    Or any folder that allows access to Everyone. I share a data drive with my Windows 7 and Windows 10 dual boot. I can update Quicken and Outlook 2007 from either OS as well as my Office apps.

    RG / Jerry;

    I do use a Public folder(s) to coordinate access. What I set up as well was using OneDrive as backup for folders / info critical to user operations in case of drive failure. I guess I was just wanting, like the log on with sign on, to have log off options as well. Oh well, wishful thinking I guess.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Guys, I tried a different tack: I tried running the OneDrive shortcut ( C:\Users\CWBillow\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneDrive \OneDrive.exe ) from the desktop. I can still get into OnDrive via my User folder, but it isn't showing in the tray at all. So I cannot find any Settings to set the "log on at sign on" option.

    Is my OneDrive in need of some type of adjustment or repair?

    Regards,
    Chuck
