I'm afraid what you're looking for is completely uninstalling the desktop app as the icon on your taskbar is a crucial part of its functionality.

Let me know if I'm missing something obvious @DeerUser69!

It is weird, why exists such a preference, but it doesn't work? Makes me a bit dissapointed

Oh, that's the Dropbox Badge - not the icon from your task bar @DeerUser69

If you want to disable the Badge take a look below:

If you'd like to completely hide the Dropbox icon from your taskbar you can disable the automatic start-up but then again you won't be syncing your files so I'd be cautious here.

I hope this clears things up a tad.

hi

 

why icon is important for the app working and updating in background. For me the icon is kind anoying, should has a option to keep app working without the icon in taskbar... updating the folder with a service in background

 

thank you

The Dropbox icon in the system tray or menu bar shows the overall status of Dropbox; Icons on individual files or folders show the status of that file or folder [link removed as per Community Guidelines].
