Excel Pinned Files on Taskbar - Doesn't show DropBox files

Excel Pinned Files on Taskbar - Doesn't show DropBox files

Hi there,

 

I've had this problem before and can't remember how I fixed it. Basically there is a weird bug where spreadsheets stored in DropBox don't show up in the recent files when you right click the Excel icon in the Windows taskbar. It's something to do with cloud files I think but there is a way you can get around it. It's really annoying because I always pin my shortcuts down there new files don't show up half the time.

 

Does anyone know the fix?

Hello there @OllyL, I hope you're having a good day!

Does this happen with all Excel files in Dropbox?

Or do you see this happening for "Online only" files compared to "Local" files?

If possible, please try testing this by pinning a file that is "Online only", check to see if it's pinned, and then right click the file and choose "Smart Sync - Local" to see if it appears then.

Keep me posted with your findings!
