Install Microsoft Office 2013 and you may see a grayed out “SkyDrive Pro” option in your context menu. This option appears whenever you right-click a file or folder, but it’s useless if you don’t use SharePoint.
SkyDrive Pro is used to sync files with a Microsoft SharePoint server, as Microsoft has explained. It is different from Microsoft’s consumer-focused SkyDrive client and removing this option shouldn’t prevent the normal SkyDrive software from functioning.
Removing SkyDrive Pro
Having previously installed and uninstalled Office 2013, this, the SkyDrive Pro context menu item, has been hanging around, mocking me. Today, after seeing this post I decided it was time to make it finally go away.
The instructions worked like a charm.
