I have uninstalled Dropbox and reinstalled it on Mojave. It won't open. I installed it on Windows 10, and it won't open. Help is appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, Mark. Thanks for replying so readily. I wasn't getting an error message, but nothing woul open. When I tried to close the app again, it told me it was already open. Then, I think I found the little icon. In the past, Dropbox showed in my Finder Window and opened up so that I could just drop files into box. Now, I guess it appears in the top menu, but only when I click on the Applications Folder. Very strange! I still can't open the Dropbox to drop item into it, but at least I know how to access it once I open it in Applications.

Oh, and in Windows, it looks like it becomes listed in the bottom menu under "Hidden Icons."  Much obliged.
