App not opening on iMac

App not opening on iMac

Please help if you can, I have installed DropBox on my Catalina Mac 10.15.

It opens up the top and can access the mac finder window to see my files.

What I can't for the life of me open is the actual dropbox app which I find far easier to navigate, I had it running previously but for some reason can open it now.

I have re-installed to no prevail. I just want to access dropbox through the dropbox app as I don my MacBook Air.
