Remove Dropbox From Navigation Pane in Windows 10 File Explorer
Dropbox is a cloud storage service, an alternative to Microsoft's OneDrive solution. It allows you to store files and folders in the cloud and sync them between connected devices. When you install Dropbox, it adds an icon to the Navigation pane in File Explorer. If you find it redundant, you may be interested in removing it.
Recently, we reported that the Dropbox UWP app was now available on Xbox One with the latest update and it also featured new UI changes. However, the update for other platforms still lacked the new UI design that its developer, Rudy Huyn, was teasing on his Twitter account. With a new app update rolling out now for both desktop and Mobile versions of Windows 10 and also for Xbox One, the new design is available to all of its users.
Like many products have started doing, Dropbox now offers a web-based installer for its Windows desktop client and also for Mac. When you click the download link, you get a small installer stub instead of the full-sized installer. That web installer will download the full version of Dropbox to your PC and install it. This is not an issue for users who want to install Dropbox on just one PC, but, if you want to download it once and then install it on multiple PCs, it makes no sense to download it individually on every PC.
If you are a Dropbox user and have an Android phone, here is good news for you: you can get an additional 1 GB of free space for your Dropbox account. Dropbox is currently providing it as a gift for new Mailbox for Android app users. Get it while it lasts.
