Remove dropbox from computer

Remove dropbox from computer

New member | Level 2

I can't remove dropbox, since it says that some kind of extensions still in use, but I can't find them, and I have removed dropbox from the menuline. But it is still synchronising with the computer. HELP And it is also present in the Launchpad

Re: Remove dropbox from computer

Hello there @mayday-mac; welcome to the Community and happy Monday!

Could you please try opening the 'Activity Monitor' utility on your computer, normally located under Applications > Utilities?

Once you have launched 'Activity Monitor', if you see any items that refer to Dropbox, or recognize any programs that you may have linked to Dropbox. Could you please perform the following steps?
  • Click on the line that references the process to select it
  • Click on the 'X' at the top left corner of the screen. Be careful not to click on the 'X' that closes the window, but the one that will 'Force a process to quit'.
Once you're done, follow these steps to uninstall the desktop app completely from your machine. 

Let me know how you get on!
