When I go to "add/remove apps it;s not there either as shown below.
If you are looking for OneDrive in the Apps & Features list, it will be listed as Microsoft OneDrive

If instead, you look on the list of Apps, that appears when you click Start you instead see it listed there under O as OneDrive

In your last post, you posted an image of This PC > Documents, with a backup folder highlighted. That folder is for an accounting software package named Quicken. That is nothing to do with Microsoft's OneDrive. Are you certain you are even using OneDrive?

Next day here for me!
Lol. I thought I knew, roughly, how it all worked. After the info here, I am now totally confused!

"That is because Sheba has either during installation of Windows 10, or some time after, set OneDrive to be the default location to backup their files. In the image they posted, the Documents folder they are selecting, when saving a File is actually OneDrives Documents folder, not the separate Documents folder you would access if you opened File Explorer and went to C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents"

Well, for what it is worth, my File manager shows precisely the same as the clip. I do not have Onedrive existing anywhere on my computer. I also save, as the op, to the Documents folder - and there they are.
I have bad feelings about storing anything in what has now become called "Cloud" in several programs. I have an external, which is plugged in whilst I am active at the computer. Everything of relevance is copied there on completion.

If you right click on "Documents" (as in your first picture) and select Properties, then click the Locations tab, what is the path of the folder?

Regedit32, I was just trying to show how my file tree is. The highlight was just a random location. I have decided to take my laptop to our local Microsoft store to get help or else I will do a clean install and pay closer attention to the setup processes.
