I am trying to install Dropbox on my iMac. I have downloaded the latest version of Dropbox and gone through the installation. During installation, Dropbox "bounces: in the Dock and then disappears. When I then go to "Finder" "apps" it appears under apps but will not open and when I then go to Force Quit it doesn't show Dropbox as running. Grateful for help please.
And my apologies for not replying sooner.
I re-installed Dropbox but am still not sure that it is working as it should. It appears under "applications", but clicking on it does not cause it to open; nor if I drag the icon into the "Dock" does it allow me to open it from there. However, a Dropbox icon appears in the top right of the screen and by clicking on that I can then get the functionality that I need. Is this what I should expect??!!
Hi Lusil I'm having the same problem as Mike, after doing everything you mantined in this post I still can't see the Dropbox folder as I used to un my Finder, I recently updated to Mojave but dodn't notice that my Dropbox folder dissapeared, any idea what could be the problem? I already reinstalled the latest version and I do see the icon on the top corner next to the clock, but not in my finder.
Hey Oscar, if you navigate to the folder icon that’s on the top-right hand corner of the notifications menu (that appears when you click on the Dropbox icon that’s next to your desktop’s clock), are you able to see a relevant path to the Dropbox folder?
Hi Lusil, sorry for the delay but I was away from my computer yesterday, yes just as you point out I can see the folders when I click on the top right dropbox icon, but I used to see Dropbox as another folder on the finder and that feature doesn't seem to be working this time.
