Add option to disable icon overlays in Windows Explorer

Add option to disable icon overlays in Windows Explorer

Helpful | Level 6

Please add an option to disable Dropbox icon overlays. It is so frustrating to remove Dropbox Shell Icon identifiers from the top of ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers list after each update! 

It is disrespectful to users to decide for them which overlays they need. 

I'm using TortoiseGit and I really need its overlays, they are useful and important for my work. Every time Dropbox updates I can no longer see status icons and have to go to Registry editor and remove newly added and USELESS Dropbox overlays.

I've seen dozens of feature requests from Dropbox users for many years but Dropbox pretends everything is fine!

I guess the answer to that is:- "No !"

This is an extremely important bug fix, NOT a feature. Dropbox repeatedly restores its icon overlays as the the top of the list, even after I manually deleted from the registry.

 

Other programs provide an option to disable icon overlays - this option should  mandatory for Dropbox.  It is fine for the option to default to enabled on install, but I must be able to change it.
