Removing OneDrive from a Windows 10 notebook

Last Modified: 2019-12-19
I want all my files to be stored exclusively on my notebook's hard drive.  Even after configuring OneDrive that way, and disconnecting my notebook from synchronization, every file I add to the desktop causes the OneDrive folder to reappear in my user profile.   In Control Panel, Microsoft OneDrive does not appear under programs or features, so I don't see how to uninstall it.  Please advise.
