Dropbox Icon Window only shows history.

Dropbox Icon Window only shows history.

After a Windows Update a couple of weeks ago my computer has become unstable as the Windows Explorer windows don't automatically refresh and things have just become weird. My Dropbox Icon used to show mw a window with Recent Files - Me and Shared - as well as notifications. Now it only shows History. Does anyone else have this problem?

I did uninstall and reinstall the Dropbox App and that fixed it yesterday but today it's back to the History thing...

Okay. I reinstalled the Dropbox Desktop App and let it go through downloading 17,000 files for 7 hours and now it seems to have been repaired. I did a new Windows Update and it still works so I believe this is no longer an issue.

Hi @jgrnfld,

Have you joined the Dropbox beta program (Early releases)? 🧐 If so, get out. 😉

Hope this helps.
