Every time I try to it just says in a red box at the top "please provide a name for the new folder."
This has happened every time I've tried for the last 3 weeks - I've tried on several different browsers, and also changed the email address on the account, and cleared the cache.
Any ideas? I've contacted Dropbox to no avail, just had an automated response telling me to go into their extensive new help section which gives me no answers.
Do you see a tiny little blue icon of a folder with a <plussign>+ on it at the top of https://www.dropbox.com/home
? click just once on it and a new folder will appear waiting for you to move your cursor to the blank and enter a new name for the folder. (do not press enter until you have provided the name.)
Thanks Elspeth. I ended up trying it on my phone earlier today - and it worked - same as for you. And Rick - gee thanks for the tip. 😉 I'm pretty sure I knew to click the add folder icon. I've been using drop box forever. This is a glitch.
