Every file opening as they sync

Every file opening as they sync

I just installed dropbox onto a new computer. I am backing up every file into local storage, but every time a file syncs from my account to my local drive, it opens. I have had maybe 200 word documents, 50 excel documents, a hundred images, dozens of pdf files, and more open on their own in the last ten minutes. I do not know what to do to resolve this matter.

Hey @Ajp111, thanks for reaching out to us on the Dropbox Community. 

 

It sounds like there's a third party app that's causing this behavior. 

 

Could you try closing any running apps that could interfere with this and see if the issue is resolved?

 

Keep me posted!
