Hi there @MDixonLF, thanks for dropping by!

 

You should be able to stop the Dropbox desktop app from running upon your system's startup by deselecting the relevant option from its settings:

  • Click on the Dropbox icon that's next to your computer's clock. 
  • Go to your avatar or initials icon, that should be on the top right corner of the pop-up menu. 
  • Choose Preferences...
  • Go to the General tab. 
  • Make sure that Start Dropbox on system startup is not selected. 

Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
