How can I stop screenshots from being uploaded to Dropbox?

Hello,

 

I have a macbook pro

 

I just realize that all my screenshots now are saved directly on my drop box. I prefer that they are saved as before on "Photo". I don't want my screenshots to go on my drop box. I did nothing to change that, and I prefer as before. I don't know why that happens without my will. I am not very good with computer. How can I do that please???

I can not get to the preferences options. When I click my avatar as the guide says to do the box that pops up only has my avatar and the word owner. No preferences option.

Hey @Orafaun, thanks for reaching out to us. 

 

Could you click on the Dropbox icon that's next to your computer's clock, and then selecting those initials? 

 

Let us know if you have any other trouble along the way!
