Whoa, what's this? I go to use dropbox today and there's green checkmarks all over my icons. Great. I'm on a mac and they're small enough as it is -- I need to be able to see my file icons, especially the images. How do I turn this off? I tried deleting the icon in the dropbox app itself but it just keeps on coming back. I don't mind if it tells me when something didn't sync or is in the process of syncing, but I don't need this stuff all over my files otherwise.
The green check mark shows you that the file has been synchronised successfully with the online Dropbox ... don't you want to know that?
On a Mac, inside the app itself (right-click and "Show Package contents", then "Resources") you will see a file called emblem-dropbox-uptodate.icns - that's the green check. In a graphics editor you could reduce the size of it, or even 'white it out' if you don't mind not knowing. However, I have no idea which graphics editors - if any - allow you to save something back in .icns format.
