Re: Can't save to Dropbox in Windows 10 S mode

Re: Can't save to Dropbox in Windows 10 S mode

Helpful | Level 6

Thought I'd add a bit more info for people coming upon this like I did and not wanting to exit S mode.

Using the Dropbox for S Mode app from the Microsoft Store, you can, in some applications, open from and save to Dropbox from within the application. If you open or save from within an app (e.g. File > Open or File > Save As..., etc), the File Explorer dialog that opens will, in some applcations, have Dropbox listed in the left sidebar, at the bottom.

You can also open files directly from within the Dropbox for S Mode app.

I use the Dropbox for S Mode app on my Surface Go - it's usable, albeit not the same as the desktop experience.

Seems as if MS have bogged the system.  Can't load Dropbox from anywhere else than MS store and it only offers the S mode.  S mode is useless in Win 10.  Back to Win 7 !!

Hey @HSG-DH, thanks for joining the topic!

 

If your device isn't running S mode, can you confirm for me if you downloaded the Dropbox app from our website here?

 

Otherwise, can you let me know if you're getting any specific errors when trying to open the app?

 

Keep me posted!

Thanks.

Sorry for the late reply but yes, it's OK now.

I can't remember what I did clearly but it's OK.

 

With thanks,
