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'

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
