    I am using Windows 10 enterprise evaluation edition.
    Previously on windows 8.1, there was no green check mark on folders being synced by Onedrive, and there was a blue syncing mark only on folders not yet synced by Onedrive, which was acceptable.

    After upgrading to Windows 10, all icons of folders being synced by Onedrive has ANNOYING green check mark, and I couldn't find an option to manage this.

    I was able to get rid of them by deleting every onedrive-related key in below registry addresses:

    HKLM\Softwares\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers

    HKLM\Softwares\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers

    But after I remove those, Onedrive asks for a permission to install itself, and if I allow it, those keys appear again, so I am currently not allowing Onedrive to do this.

    For me, Windows 10's design is pretty appealing, but I can't still trust designers in Microsoft unlike Apple, so I devote a lot of time customizing appearances.

    Please indicate if there is an option to do this without destructive means. I would like to do this by all means.
