How to add a folder to be synced and saved on local PC drive?

How to add a folder to be synced and saved on local PC drive?

FAQs do not address this - they only talk about Team Adminstation and RIght Click options alluded to do not exist.

 

Environment - New Laptop Windows 11, Drop box 2TB personal storage.

 

I use the app on Desktop and a laptop.  I initially set the laptop to see 4 folders - no problem all working.

 

I simply want to add another folder, WITHOUT having to reinstall the Dropbox app and reselect the folders to be synced.

 

Suggestions/Advice - please.

... WHy does the Profile Iconfrom the Start Bar have different options ?  THis was the misleading part - which I have only now realised.

Thanks, at least I relooked at this FAQ for the 5th time

Are you sure you are using the desktop software and not trying to do this via the website? 

 

Click on the Dropbox icon on the status bar, click on your little avatar picture top right and then click preferences.
