Stop Automatically Opening New Folders

Explorer | Level 4

Hello,

 

Dropbox on web browser has this annoying setting of automatically taking you into a new folder after you create it. This is unnecessary for me and very disruptive to my workflow. Is there a way to turn off this setting?

 

Thank you,

Justin

Hi @Juttybird, thanks for messaging today!

 

Currently, it isn't possible to change the the way the site automatically moves into the folder once it's created.

 

However, if you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
