Can I remove the dropbox icon from the status bar, and later get it back without jeopardizing my dropbox account during that period?
What kind of nonsense is this? It is 2020 and Dropbox can't provide an checkbox option to hide the icon?
I would love to use dropbox, but personally this is a deal breaker. As a paying customer I believe I shouldn't have to install 3rd party software to over come this shortcoming.
Actually, that depends on the OS and graphical environment in use. Many environments allow applications control on the icon appearance (change of application state - active or inactive). Particular icon could be set in the environment as "always shown" or "always hidden", application status independent. But, as I already noted, that depends on the environment, how exactly could be done. 😉 Dropbox doesn't support this explicitly. 😞😠
@michael36, Check your OS environment features 😉, probably you can change the appearance without using any third party application.
I am in total agreement here that the icon in the memu bar at the top of the screen on my MAC should have a check box to not have it. If the software guys find offering a check box to NOT have the icon at the top of my screen, contact SweetP productions. They make a progrem called Cookie, and they have a preference check box that says, "Show Cookie in MemuBar" (so it shows the icon or not), and a second check box that says, "and Hide Dock Icon". I am amaized and disapointed that the drop box software guys are not able to provide something as simple as not giving us an icon to look at. My reason for having it gone is in 2019 Dropbox came out with this slam it down the customers mouth new system that forces you to click on the DB icon, and then on the FINDER FOLDER to get what we had for the past 15 years. I now have an alias of the dropbox icon becasue of this nonsense. I just drage items to it, or open it to find somehting. The icon at the top of the screen just takes up space and is never used thanks to the new 'system'. Just my two cents worth.
