System Start-up

System Start-up

I have set the preference for Dropbox to automatically load on system start-up, but it doesn't happen. I have uninstalled Dropbox and re-installed it, but Dropbox still not starting when laptop booted up; I have signed out of Dropbox and logged in again and it performed an index of all files, but it still won't open on boot-up. I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series running Windows 10. Can anyone help with this?

Go to Windows' System Settings, Startup Apps, and make sure Dropbox is enabled.

Thanks Rich, that was it! Simples. I'm still confused how Dropbox got disabled on start-up after being fine for years, but at least it's sorted now. Very grateful.
