Option for screenshots in Dropbox?

Hi, I'm trying to set up Dropbox to automatically take screenshots when I hit the print-screen button, but I do not see the option here under Backups that is described here: https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/photos/screenshots

 

Is the option somewhere else or do I need another version of the Desktop app?

 

Thank you.

Hey @SamanthaK, thanks for reaching out!

After you check the box next to the option that @Rich indicated, once you press your Print Scrn key, you should get a notification that the screenshot has been added to your Dropbox. 

Are you not seeing this? Can you restart your computer and try again?

Thanks!

You already have it enabled. It's the one that says Share screenshots using Dropbox.

Okay - is there something else I need to do to actually enable it?  I've been pressing Print Screen, but nothing happens.
