Cannot disable screenshots saving to Dropbox (Mac)

New member | Level 2

Howdy, hope someone can help. I have an iMac, 10.13.6, with Dropbox installed. I had Screenshots auto-saved to Dropbox then turned this setting off and uninstalled Dropbox. Screenshots STILL save to Dropbox but don't show up on my computer. Each new screenshot shows up for ~10 seconds in my iCloud Desktop (synced) then disappears and is uploaded to Dropbox.com, but because Dropbox is unintalled, it disappears from my computer (no Dropbox folder).

Hi @nathanlind, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

If the screenshots are still being uploaded to the Dropbox site, then you haven't uninstalled the Dropbox desktop application, nor disabled the screenshot setting.

 

Could you doublecheck that the app is fully uninstalled using these steps?

 

Let me know how it goes!
