I would like to have options re notifications

I would like to have options re notifications

Norma15219

I would like the ability to opt out of specified notifications. I don't need my screen going through a song and dance every time I plug my Android phone into it. I've switched to charging it through an electrical outlet to avoid that annoyance.

Thanks for those screenshots @Norma15219 (and the lovely view)!

 

I could suggest disabling push notifications through the Windows notification center. You can do this with the following steps:

  1. Press the Windows Start button on your keyboard.
  2. Select "Settings".
  3. Go to "System".
  4. Choose "Notifications & actions".
  5. Disable the option for Dropbox.

Let me know if that does the trick!

Hi there @Norma15219, thanks for posting!

 

Could you just clarify for me, what exactly is the prompt that you're getting when you connect your mobile?

 

Is it from the desktop app to upload your pictures/videos from the mobile device?

 

If you'd like to, please send along a screenshot of the notification as the visual would be helpful too.

 

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

How do I send you the screenshots?

If you're not able to attach a screenshot with the "Photos" option at the top of the reply box, you can send a shared link to the screenshot instead, @Norma15219.

That worked, thank you. I was afraid I was going to have to disable all notifications, but I just disabled two:

 

1. Show notification banners; and

 

2. Play a sound when a notification arrives.

I'm glad to hear that helped @Norma15219!

 

If you need anything else, I'm just a post away. 😁

 

Wishing you a wonderful rest of your week!
