I've accidentally agreed for my screenshots to go into my Dropbox folder. Can you tell me how I can change that setting? Thanks!

You can disable that feature in Dropbox Preferences, on the Import tab.

Go into Dropbox Preferences and toggle the screenshot setting off and on again.

Probably not, but it would be your operating system that controls that; not Dropbox.
