How to get Dropbox desktop to look like the folder?

Explorer | Level 3

Hello,

I have two beginner's questions -- 

1. Dropbox desktop won't open automatically, though I have that option checked.

2. The tags in the Dropbox folder don't transfer to the Dropbox desktop experience... (And if this isn't possible, is there a way to get the folder with the tags to open automatically.?) 

Thanks!!

Hey @laxman1945, I’d happily clarify; thanks for posting us your questions here! 
 
In order to make sure I’m following-up with you correctly, can you clarify the following for me? 
 
  • Have you enabled the new Dropbox desktop app or the option for the app to launch automatically whenever you start your computer?
  • Could you include a screenshot in your next message (omitting personal info) showing me the checked option?
  • If by tags you’re referring to the Mac OS tags, then these aren’t synced within Dropbox, however you can upvote this Idea if you’d like to see this feature in the future. 
I look forward to hearing back from you, so as to further advise. Thanks again!
