Most strange. I find the quickest way to access my Dropbox folders in Windows is by having a shortcut on the desktop that just goes directly to the Dropbox top-level folder. So - I create that shortcut and it works just perfectly for a while.
But - after a reboot (I think it's just then), that shortcut gets replaced by a Dropbox shortcut that is linked to the Dropbox executable and I then get the Dropbox-specific folder window instead of the file explorer one. Why is this happening? Does Dropbox always insist on creating a desktop shortcut and mine is just being overridden?
