Excel opens ALL excel folders in DropBox

Excel opens ALL excel folders in DropBox

Greetings,

I am using a MAC. When I launch Microsoft Excel and Dropbox is open, Excel begins opening ALL excel files in my dropbox folder. I have uninstalled both Excel and Dropbox and have scanned my computer for viruses. Any guidance would be appreciated!

Hi @Giacona86, thanks for joining the Community!

When you open Excel, did you try to open a file beforehand, or is it just opening the files without prompting?

Are these files in the Dropbox folder, or located elsewhere?

If the Dropbox desktop application has been shut down, does the issue occur again?

This will help me to assist further!

Jay,

Once I open Excel, Excel automatically begins opening all excel files in my dropbox. It does not open files on my desktop or other folders.  I just tried shutting the application and launching Excel and the same problem continues.

Could you clarify as to why you believe Dropbox is the cause for this, aside from the location of the files?

I am not sure which program is causing the problem. Most likely it is excel. I was hoping to find someone who experienced this previously and could provide some guidance.
