    But if I upload a pic on OneDrive on my PC it wont save to my phone. Any help would be great

    Sounds normal. Think about it. You don't really want your entire Onedrive collection to be downloading to your phone, do you? That's the whole point of cloud storage. You'll run out of space on your phone... Your PC on the other hand, may have plenty of hard drive space to sync your whole Onedrive, yes, you upload a pic to Onedrive with your phone, and it appears on your PC. But if you upload some pics to Onedrive from your PC, it's better for them to just stay on Onedrive, and then you can access them as you need them with your phone and the Onedrive app... (only download the pics you want to your phone) Know what I mean?

    If it doesn't get uploaded, you should have an according error message on your computer. Check the OneDrive icon in the SysTray, does it have a tiny red sign on it? If so, there's definitely a problem with one or more pending up- or downloads. Right click the icon and choose "show synchronization problems" or something along those lines. It might be an improper filename or something.

    Have you tried moving the file to another folder? This should definitely abort the uploading process.

    The strange thing is its built into my OS on the laptop so I can't dive into any folders. It's not even listed in to the section where you can uninstall programmed on the laptop. I would be happy to uninstall and re-install it but I don't have that option at all anywhere

    Open your File Explorer and take a look at the navigation pane on its left side. There is "OneDrive". Double Click it to access all its containing folders. ;)
