Is this a new "feature" or a bug.

I don't use Google Apps aside from Google Drive.

I just realized my Windows Explorer context menu (for "NEW") had been modified. 

Based on the registry entries, the culprit is Dropbox.

Why would dropbox suddenly decide to add crap to the context menu and not even (1) ask for a permission to do so, or (2) include the option of removing those shortcuts.

 

Yes, I know, I can hack the registry, but it's beside the point.

Why would dropbox do this?

Hi @B_H, thanks for posting today! 

Can I ask if you have any Google Sheets, Docs, or Slides saved into your Dropbox account? 

Also, what's the version and status of your Dropbox desktop application? 

Keep me posted!

All files sync'ed. No errors.

I never used Google apps, only MS Office.

Dropbox v132.4.3800

 

Even if I had someone share a Google sheet, why would Dropbox suddenly decide to add shortcuts to any computer synchronizing files? 

 

Thanks for looking into this.
