How Do I Delete Files From OneDrive, but Not My Computer?

  1. Go to the OneDrive website. You might need to sign in with your Microsoft account, or your work or school account.
  2. Select the files or folders you want to delete by pointing to each item and clicking the circle check box that appears. (The left image below shows items in List view, the right image shows items in Tiles or Photos view.)
  3. To select all files in a folder, click the circle to the left of the header row, or press CTRL + A on your keyboard. (You can also select several files at once by selecting one file, scrolling down the list, then hold down the Shift key while left-clicking the last item you want to select.)
  4. On the bar at the top of the page, select Delete. (You can also right-click the selected file or folder and select Delete.)
  5. To delete a folder, rather than just its contents, you may need to go up or back a level to select the whole folder.
  6. To permanently delete specific files or folders from the recycle bin, select those items, then select Delete in the top navigation. To permanently delete the entire recycle bin at once, select Empty recycle bin in the top navigation.
