Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I wish to  help a friend with a Windows 10 issue.  Each time he attempts to save something, it goes straight to a cloud instead of the hard drive.  Is there a way he can reconfigure the settings to stop this from happening?

          Thank you

          George

That is probably One Drive. Just do not use that folder. You can right click on One Drive, choose settings, have it not load with Windows, have it use specific folders not where you save.

It is very easy to manage.
