I have two accounts, how can I switch one to the other on my desktop app?

New member | Level 2

I have managed to create two Dropbox accounts by accident, when I had to rebuild my PC after a crash. Now when I go to File Explorer (Win 10) I can only see the empty file structure for the newly created account, when I want to see the files in my original account. How can I change which Dropbox account shows in File Explorer ? thanks - I have only got basic accounts

Hey @Geoff_Allan, thanks for dropping by. 

 

You can change the Dropbox account that's connected to your desktop app by first unlinking the one you're signed in with. 

 

Once you do that, you can then signing in with the other account. 

 

Give that a try and let me know how it goes or if you have any other questions. Cheers!
