I want to remove the notifications which I got in my Dropbox when someone shared with me a file or a folder. The notification is still visible even though the file or folder is no longer shared with me.

I have attached a screen shot about which notifications i'm talking about.enter image description here

I don’t think you can (I don’t see any option for it), but I won’t post this as an answer, as I don’t know for sure. – Alex Nov 25 '14 at 11:10

You can not disable or clear web console notification. Incase if you wanted to disable desktop notification you can follow the below steps to do so.

locate dropbox icon and right click the icon. Click on preferences --> General --> uncheck "Show desktop notification".

maybe this feature isn't as important as others :) – anky Nov 26 '14 at 6:02

The only way I found a workaroud was as follows: 1.) Open a second account on dropbox. Upload three random files. 2.) Share these three random files with your dropbox account where you want to hide the notifications. Result: What happens is that after three notifications the ones which you don't want to have visible disappear in the invisible part (as long as you don't scroll up). They will only disappear completely from the notifications after a certain time period. This is very annoying and it should be solved.
