I keep setting dropbox to start up with the windows 10 start up and it never does.  Yes, I have clicked into preferences and checked that box.  But it never seems to actually start up on start up.

Re: Dropbox Does NOt STArt in Windows 10


Hi @Msong4u, thanks for posting on the Community!

Could you check if you have any settings in Windows that could prevent the Dropbox desktop application from adding this option to launch automatically?

Could you try installing the Dropbox desktop application again, without first uninstalling it, to see if this repairs the app?

Keep me posted!
