Hi @daron r., thanks for posting on the Community!

 

If you hover over the small Dropbox icon in your menu bar, instead of clicking on it, while your files are uploading, are you able to see the upload speed perhaps? 

 

Let me know, and we’ll take it from there.

Thanks Nancy, that solution works...but the read out is static. So, you have to keep hovering off and back on, to see speed fluctuations. I'm trying to test out Dropbox upload speed. You'd think they'd make it easier, or perhaps they don't want you to know! 🙂 Thanks anyway.
