I have windows 11 and some time within the last month or two I am unable to get the system tray icon to do anything. If I hover my mouse over the icon it shows the version and that I'm "up to date". If I left click, right click, double click, ctrl + left click, ctrl + right click, nothing at all happens. I do get the little red circle with a number in it so I know there is notifications coming in. In the past I used to click on the icon and a menu would appear that I could acknowledge notifications. I can no longer do that and have to go online and do it in the web page. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it still does not work.
My Win11 updated last night. The package name is:
Cumulative Update for Windows 11 Insider Preview (10.0.22623.1020) (KB5020035)
The left or right click can show the dropbox main window right now, but it's not attached to the system tray. It pops up on the top left corner. ≡(▔﹏▔)≡
Whatever, it works at least. ( •̀ ω •́ )✧
Hey @fftempest, let's jump right into this!
Odd behavior indeed. Which version of the Dropbox app do you have installed on the device currently?
Keep me posted!
Hey @fftempest, it might sound trivial, but have you tried restarting your device recently?
Hi @fftempest! I hope you’re doing well.
Since the basic reinstall didn’t seem to resolve the issue, can you try an advanced one instead and let me know if it helps?
The mouse left or right click have no response recently. Reinstall cannot recover.
The other icons are running well.
This is my system info.

Hi @gostnort, welcome t o our Community!
Have you also tried rebooting your device? If I were you, I'd also try an advanced re-install.
Let me know of the results!
