Trouble removing file shared with me

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Someone sent me a file to view on dropbox.  I viewed the file.  It is now showing up in my dropbox files and I want it deleted. When I hover over the ... delete is not an option. How do I get this file off of my dropbox?

Hi @AV3, thanks for posting today!

 

Is this file in a shared folder, or just a shared file?

 

If the latter, then you can remove the shared file from this page when you click the ellipsis.

 

Let me know how it goes!
