This article describes how to view all shared OneDrive files and folders and stop sharing them.
The OneDrive app lets you sync files and folders on your computer with Microsoft Cloud. It allows you to access them anywhere on your mobile devices and other computers using the service.
The OneDrive app comes installed on Windows 11 by default. The app lets you work with your synced files directly in File Explorer, even offline.
You can use OneDrive to share your files and folders with anyone, anywhere, and control what users see and what they can change. Once you share your files, users will have access to them until you stop sharing them.
Here’s how to view all the files and folders you shared and how to stop sharing them.
