I have 3 computers, 1 desktop and 2 laptops.

On the desktop and one of the laptops, when I log onto Windows, Microsoft OneDrive is automatically working straightaway without me having to do anything.

When I open the other laptop and logon, I have to physically turn on Microsoft OneDrive for it to be working and syncing with the other 2 computers, it does not start automatically on this particular laptop. Is there any reason why this is and is there a setting that I need to change for it to do so?

Thanks

Check Task Manager, Startup tab and see if it is present and enabled.

IF not, then......
The next time you manually start it, use its' icon in the notification area (bottom right near clock), right click it and choose Settings and then on the "Settings" tab check the box that says "Start OneDrive automatically when I sign in to Windows"

Appreciate your assistance people.

It wasn’t enabled in the taskbar Startup tab.

Thanks
