Turn On or Turn Off Sending Screenshots to Dropbox
Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we're going to demonstrate how to turn on or off sending screenshots to Dropbox. When you have installed Dropbox, the default setting is to send all of your screenshots to a location within Dropbox.
For instance, take a screenshot of a web page. Instead of saving the screenshot to the desktop, the screenshot will be saved to Dropbox. You will receive a Dropbox link where the screenshot will be located. The link will be automatically copied to the buffer.
You can paste the link into the browser address bar to open the Dropbox screenshot folder.
Alternatively, launch Finder.
In Finder, click "Dropbox" on the left-side menu.
Then, click "Screenshots". All of your screenshots will be saved to this location.
To turn off the sending screenshots to Dropbox, open Dropbox. In this video, the Dropbox icon is clicked in the menu along the top of the screen.
In the menu that appears, click the gear icon. The gear icon is located at the lower right corner of the menu.
Then, select "Preferences..." in the drop-down menu. A new window will appear on the screen.
In this window, click the "Import" icon.
Then, uncheck the "Share screenshots using Dropbox" box.
Close the window by clicking the red button in the upper-left corner.
Now, take a screenshot. The screenshot file will show up on the desktop. This will be the new default setting.
