I've just installed Dropbox on my Windows 10 laptop. However, when I click on the desktop icon, it sends me to Windows Exploere, not the app. I've found the icon in the task bar, clicked on that and gone to 'Preferences' and ticked "Open the desktop app when starting Dropbox" thinking this might fix it, but it doesn't.

The option you want to change is Open folder in. Change it to the Dropbox dekstop app.
