Right click windows menu disappearing when downloading folder

Right click windows menu disappearing when downloading folder

Hello,
dropbox app v 118 + windows 10 issue
it drives me crazy when I wanna set up multiple folders as local or online only, folder starts downloading, and just after the action I cant do that with another folder since after right click on folder the windows options just disappear, I need to set local multiple folders at once preferably.
any tips?  Much appreciated, thank you.

Just highlight all the folders at once and right-click on them. You'll still the the Local and Online-only options, and whichever you choose will apply to all the folders you have selected.

Thank you for the tip, although I think the problem persisted through the whole directory, and the folders I need to set local aro not in the same folder all the time, but definitely will do "right click select all" when this is just one folder task.
I think its because drobpox starts refreshing the folders at the moment when starts downloading the files, not sure its fixable

Not Dropbox; your operating system, which Dropbox has no control over.

 

Same thing would happen in your Downloads folder while downloading a file from any website. Start a download from somewhere. Go into your Downloads folder and start to rename a file. If the download completes while you're in the middle of the rename, Windows will refresh the folder for the newly added file and your rename is cancelled.

I know,
its an windows thing based on dropbox command, maybe I wanted to avoid the exact term in order to be able to "fix dropbox issue" but anyways thanks 🙂
