Can I edit the display of the Dropbox desktop app?

Explorer | Level 3



I'm using Dropbox purely for myself and not in teamwork. Hence, the right-hand side (comment section) of the Dropbox Desktop does not add anything to my work and it rather annoys me as it is rather large. Is it possible to hide this section like it is with the section on the left?


Edit: Similarly, I would like to hide the top part as well with the description of the folder. I know these things by heart such that it does not add anything to my work.


Thanks in advance!

Re: Display of Dropbox Desktop


Hello there @TdHaan, I hope you're well today!


At the moment, there aren't any options to edit the layout of the Dropbox app in the ways you mentioned I'm afraid. 


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts and feedback on this with us here, perhaps I can suggest sharing this as a request in our dedicated area of the Community here.


Sorry that I couldn't be of much more help with this, but please do let me know if you have any questions.
