I indeed want screenshots saved to Dropbox.  I have the checkmark in "Share screenshots using Dropbox."  This used to work fine, but now it does not. Microsoft keeps asking if I want to save screenshots to their Cloud. I've said no thanks.  But how do I get screenshots again saved to Dropbox?

You do this within Preferences of the Dropbox app on your computer, not on the Dropbox website.

Please show me how to get to the "Dropbox Preferences".  I can't locate it within the app.  Thank you.
