I have installed Dropbox and when I go to "dropbox.com" the login page appears.  When I select either the desktop app or the tray app they take me to the folder where dropbox files are.  How do I make the desktop and tray app to take me to the login page?

Hi @fgmungo, thanks for posting here today! 

 

From what I understand, you'd like to click on the desktop app icon, and for this to re-direct you to your login page online. 

 

What you described above, is normal behavior. When you click on the app's icons, that should open your Dropbox files locally on the device. 

 

However, if you wish you can click on your small Dropbox icon, the one next to your WiFi on your task bar, and on the pop-up window (assistant tray), you should be having a globe-like icon. If you click that, you should be re-directed to your Dropbox account online. 

 

I hope this helps!
