Stop putting links om ny start menu!

Stop putting links om ny start menu!

Gwillewyn
Helpful | Level 5

I like having a tidy start menu, and I have a perfectly fine link to Dropbox on the start menu itself, but I constantly find that the program has created a folder (%programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Dropbox) containing the exact same link, and a readme file as well.  I keep deleting the folder, and it keeps coming back.

Please, how do I stop Dropbox from cluttering up my start menu!

There is no way to do this I'm afraid.

May I suggest requesting a feature request at https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Share-an-idea/ct-p/101002000

Thanks. 😞

I'll see if I can come up with some unwholesome WinReg hack.

Do you already have a solution for this stupid behaviour?

Unfortunately not.

Every few days I have to delete this Dropbox-folder from the Windows10 Start-menu.

I hope the will fix this anytime. Maybe 2034... 😞
