Can I remap the keys used for screenshots that are saved into Dropbox?

Explorer | Level 3

Dropbox uses "control + printscreen" in order to capture a screenshot and save it to the Dropbox. Is there any way to remap these keys to something different? I would like to be able to use a two key shortcut that is executable with one hand when I'm working because I am an amputee and dislike sticky keys. I am aware that many other competing softwares allow the user to change hotkeys to better suit the user's needs, so I am wondering if Dropbox has this critical function too.

Hey there @James_, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

You should be able to change the actual screenshot keys used through your OS settings.

 

If you're using a Mac device please check out this article for some more info on this, or this article if you're using a Windows device.

 

Let me know if this does the trick!
