Apps and Installations
Have a question about a Dropbox app or installation? Reach out to the Dropbox Community and get solutions, help, and advice from members.
I've uninstalled Dropbox from my laptop but the navigation pane still contains the icon (which points to nothing and gives an error). I'd like to remove the icon from the navigation pane (it's truly incredible that the installer doesn't do this... ). I've found instructions for windows 10 (e.g. these ones), but none of those keys seem to exist in my registry. I'm wondering if it's because something changed for the Win 11 version. I would appreciate any help. Thank you.
EDIT: I have restarted the PC multiple times since uninstall so it's not a caching thing.
Hi @stevestevesteve, I'm glad you posted to our Community!
Can you send me a screenshot of what you see on your end, please?
Also, if you access your device's programs is Dropbox shown there?
Let me know what you find.
Thanks for the info, in order to look into this matter in more detail, would it be possible to reach out to the email associated with your forum profile?
Further, one may have to delete every key in the registry under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\", for me this had entries from onedrive and dropbox.
Awesome news, @stevestevesteve!
