Is there a way to turn off sidebar suggestions of Starred folders in Dropbox's Mac app? I don't want to see irrelevant folders and files besides my starred folders. Screen Shot 2021-04-06 at 12.45.41 AM.png

Hey @emreerkin, thanks for posting your question here. 

On the sidebar of the desktop app, you'll find a list of suggested and starred items.

Although there's no way to remove this, I understand where you're coming from and thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. 

Out of curiosity, would you prefer to see it as an option to directly right-click and remove items, or completely turn off the option to have suggested/starred content show?

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

I only don't want to see the suggestions. As you can see from my screenshot, I already have 3 starred folders which are my Mac, notability and college. I am okay to see these folders and I should tell it is very convenient to have them there, so all I wished was to remove completely suggested folders but it seems like there is no way to do that. This may be an option Dropbox will later consider to bring to its users. I know a lot of us really like keeping their workspace clean and tidy.
