Re: no dropbox items in dropdown menu

no dropbox items in dropdown menu

Hi,

 

Usually, I see dropbox choices in here. The one I always use is to create a dropbox link. It's missing now. How do I get that back?

 

Thanks

Dave

Hi Walter,

 

I actually had to do an OS software update. When my machine restarted, all the icons showed up.

 

Thank You!

Hello Dave, is the Dropbox app running in your computer? Do you see the Dropobx icon in the menubar? I do not see the sync icon on the files and folders. Probably you need to start the Dropbox app from your applications.

Hi,

 

Yes the app  is running.. I can create links and share from there, but that takes a few more steps and the time to create the link is longer

As @Elixir mentioned, there are no syncing icons on the files shown in your first screenshot @Dave T.4.

Could you refresh your Finder and let us know if it helped improve matters?
