Solved Does DropBox need to be in the startup menu?

Specs: Windows Vista
Does Drop Box have to be in the start-up program folder or is it OK to remove it from there? My computer takes too long to load up on starting windows as too many things in the start-up.

✔ Best Answer
It depends on how much you use it, but no you don't need to have it in the startup menu, it just won't update automatically when you drop something into it from another location, and you won't have immediate access to what's in there. The main difference you'll notice is that when you open it from the desktop you'll have to double-click it twice - the first time nothing will apparently happen, but the program will have started and will be checking to see what has changed. The next double click will actually open the dropbox folder.
