This window is impossible to hide on my Windows 8.1 machine, unless Show Desktop Notifications is turned off.
While I'm fine with having it turned off for now, I'd very much like to be able to have this feature turned on in the future.

I just recently got a new computer and just downloaded the dropbox desktop app. I've always used it and have never had an issue before. Now when I click on the icon in my tray, a box appears that shows the files syncing, and there a couple of optinos listed "show me how to: get to my files from anywhere, share a file of any size, edit files together easily" -- there is NO opportunity for me to minimize this box. I cant get it go away.. even if im doing something else on my computer, it's still there. It's so frustrating. Is this a glitch or am I missng something?
Same issue here with a new install of Windows 10 Enterprise 64bit. I've tried to uninstall and reinstall Dropbox but it still won't go away. The only way I've found to get rid of it is to exit Dropbox completely and then start it up again.

Ok, I was tinkering with it some more and seemed to have fixed the problem. Go to "Preferences", "General", and uncheck "Show desktop notifications". Hit apply and close Dropbox. When you restart Dropbox, it will function normally. You can re-enable "Show desktop notifications" and it will work without the persistent window. Good luck!
