how do I remove old notifications

how do I remove old notifications

Hi,

when I click on the Dropbox taskbar icon, a window appear and show "Notifications" and "Recent Files" on the side.

the problem is that in the Notification Tab I see a couple of sharing notifications about 2 and 3 years old, that no longer exist.

so, how do I remove old, unwanted notifications?

thanks

You cant I'm afraid.

The only possible work around is to try and right click on select 'mark as spam'

- inappropriate
- not interesting or it disturb me.
- I dont know this person or this file.

Choose 'Not interesting' as its the closest one.

I have not found where I can right click, no options come up for marking as spam.

I am tired of these porn shares randomly coming to my account.

I want to delete these notifications since they are offensive.

I don't know Cynthia Johns, Dina McCray, nor Nancy Flemming.

What gives on removing the notification?  Right-clicking does nothing for me.

On my dropbox to the right of the notification you want removed there is a ... 3 or so dots. Clicking them gives an option the remove it. It asks why, the choice is up to you
