Location Of Dropbox Icon

Grimbo
Explorer | Level 4

Hi.  I know this will seem trivial to some but I'm pretty sure it will be something a lot of people will find annoying.  When I open a spreadsheet from Dropbox, the blue Dropbox icon appears on the right hand side of the screen, right on the slider for rapid scrolling up and down.  As such it 'gets in the way' all the time.  I know I can drag it somewhere else on the screen, but it doesn't save in that position so the next time I open the spreadsheet it's back where it started.  Is there any way to pin this icon permanently in a more convenient location?  Up at the top right, just to the left of the exit/maximise/minimise/restore icons would be ideal.

 

Thanks for any ideas.

Hey @Grimbo; welcome to our Community!

I just gave this a go and, to be honest, I haven't found a way to freeze the Dropbox Badge's position after closing and relaunching the Excel app on my computer. 

If you'd like to see this as an option in the future, please post your suggestion in the relevant section of our Community so that other users can upvote it to show their interest. 

Let us know if you have anything else to add or ask in the meantime.

Hi Walter.  Thanks for your answer and your suggestion re' posting in the ideas section.  I've done that.  Do you know what purpose this badge serves?  If it can't be moved, can it just be permanently hidden?  There's no such badge in Word documents, so I wonder why it's needed in Excel.

In short, it helps you collaborate on shared files @Grimbo.

You can turn it off completely though the desktop app's preferences if needed though. 

Let me know if you have any follow up questions!
