How can I change the Dropbox account on this computer?

My wife got a new computer. I now have her old one. How do I change the Dropbox default from her account to mine?

Re: change dropbox account on this computer

Hey @jsjeffers, I hope you're well today!

 

From what you've mentioned, are you referring to the desktop app installed on your computer?

 

If so, to switch the accounts you'll need to unlink the current account from the app. You can check out the steps to do this here.

 

You can then either delete the old Dropbox folder on your computer, or you can temporarily rename the folder. Then, you can sign back into the desktop app using your account credentials.

 

Let me know if you have any questions!
