Connect dropbox with word

OMG....I have spent all day trying to link MS 365 apps with Dropbox.  I am going in circles!!!

I don't want to use online apps, I want to open with my desktop apps.  Please help!  Give me an example--say setting up Word, and I swear I will be able to figure out how to do Excel and Powerpoint.

 

BTW, this is my second PC in less than a month and I was able to open documents in Dropbox then so something has changed in 30 days.  Are you no longer playing nice with Chrome??

Hi @noruskt, thanks for messaging the Community!

Are you referring to opening you files via the Dropbox site, to open on the local version of Office 365?

Have you tried these steps to see if they help to show the Open button options?

Keep me updated with any progress!

I was able to connect.  I think what happens is that there is a delay requiring restart of MS Office.  Once I figured this out, I was able to get it going.

 

No, using the instructions was not helpful.
