    First Name:
    I just purchased a new HP laptop computer and during the setup process, I inadvertently gave permission to download documents from Microsoft OneDrive.

    I had Microsoft Office 2016 on an old computer so activated office using the 2016 product code.

    When I access Word or Excel to create a new document, the program opens in OneDrive instead of one my computer.

    1. I only saved certain documents to one drive so the document list on my computer is not complete.I would like to delete all of the OneDrive documents on my computer and replace them with the documents I have saved on an external hard drive. I am not concerned with deleting OneDrive documents because I can upload them again from my external hard drive.

    2. I want Microsoft Office to open on my computer and not one OneDrive when I create a document.

    Does anyone have a solution to correcting this? I tried calling Microsoft but you know how that goes and I was unable to talk to a live person.
