I installed dropbox and now my screenshots go to dropbox, I tried disabling "Share screenshots using dropbox" but now screenshots don't go to the folder but also not to the clipboard
How can I store screenshots again?

To check where screenshots are currently assigned, in Terminal type
defaults read com.apple.screencapture location
By default that would actually return no answer, as the line should only be written if you ever change it - so I'm assuming Dropbox did change it at some point.
To reset it to the default desktop location, type
defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Desktop
This should cover for Cmd ⌘ Shift ⇧ 3 & 4 screenshots. Screenshots to clipboard should be unaffected, & still be activated by adding Ctrl ⌃ to either of the above methods.
