How can I view my folders on the Dropbox mobile app

How can I view my folders on the Dropbox mobile app

How can I get folder view in Dropbox mobile?? There is no left side bar, there is is no badge at the top, there is no lightning bolt, and I can't see how to get folder view. Sometimes folder view appears but I don't know why. How can I switch to folder view from file view? Thank you very much!

Thank you very much, Hannah! That is exactly the solution I was looking for. When I wrote the post, I didn't even know my files appeared at the end, but discovered that soon after. Now it makes sense. Listing by name makes it work like Windows, where files appear before alphabetized files. Thanks again!

Hey @GWFS, thanks for joining our Community today!

Do you mean that you see your files first and your folders under them?

And do you perhaps have your files sorted as 'Modified' instead of 'Name'? Do you see your folders if you change that?

A screenshot of how your files appear for you, would also be really helpful.

Thanks!
