Install now box - how to remove

Install now box - how to remove

T F.1
Collaborator | Level 9

I have an extra user account on the Win10 PC.

Sometimes a box asking me to install Dropbox in the other User account comes up.

How to remove this?

I can't uninstall it in the other user account, as it uninstalls it in all user accounts. can't find how to get rid of this annoying box.


Thanks

I understand, I’ll forward this feedback to our dev team to look into this for future improvements to the app.

Hi there, is this a full installer or is it the Dropbox desktop application asking you to sign into your account?
 
Could you try disabling it from starting up in Windows using the steps in this article?
 
Let me know how it goes!

How does this disable it in one user a account but not in the main Administrator user account?

Thanks

As that is related to the OS only, I can’t really give any advice on that front.
 
If you’re not able to do it that way, if it is only asking you to install the app, you could install it, not sign in, and then disable the app from the preferences to prevent it from loading when you boot up that account.
 
Hope this helps!

It is very annoying that DropBox installs this stupid box, with no way to stop it


Thank you
