It would be a nice addition to let users move some items to the extended context menu (shift+rightclick).

Using run-->regedit, then find two folder and delete it

Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\DropboxExt
Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\DropboxExt

If there still exist, plz use "find" function to find all "DropboxExt" and then delete it.

Thanks!

But what if I want to remove only "View comments" but not "Copy Dropbox link"? Deleting those removes all of them.

I hope devs add a feature to disable "Send with Transfer..." and other menu items I don't need.

Completely unhelpful. Get this junk out of our contextual menus.

Truly, why would you force that onto your end user? Dropbox is supposed to be about convenience and ease of use. Your pollution of the context menu is exactly the opposite of that. Err on the side of elegance not this low brow brute force mentality.

Maybe the easiest solution to remove Dropbox from context menu is to use CCleaner:

 

Tools -> Startup > Context Menu

I don't see why you have to ask OP for the whole screen. As if he uses a high resolution screen then it's ok to spam the context menu?

 

Right now I see 9 dropbox items in my context menu. I really concern this will only grow more and more.

 

Most applications would group the items into its own app category (sub-menu). Why dropbox must lay it all out? At least give us option to customize it please...

just wanted to say that the items you've added to the context menu are extremely annoying and they are slowing down our computers.

How about this screenshot? There're now 9 items just for Dropbox alone, and it's literally filling up my entire screen height and trigger a vertical scroll on the context menu. It's ridiculous. I don't care how you do it, but reduce them asap. before I decide to unsubscribe as well and go elsewhere.
