How can I change the way my files open through the desktop app as I don't like the new interface?

How can I change the way my files open through the desktop app as I don't like the new interface?

Is there any way to go back to the old interface?  One of the most common things I do is to copy a file's or folder's Dropbox link, but amid all the sophisticated bells and whistles now available, that simple process is not available.  (Unless you first click into my Mac's Finder, which is what the old interface already did in a single step.)

Hi @BaltimoreVF, thanks for posting today!

 

If you're using the new Dropbox desktop application, you can return to using Finder using these steps in the Dropbox desktop application.

 

Hope this helps!

Thanks, I am glad I had that option.  It still surprises me that all the things available when you Control-click a folder in the Finder would not also be there in the souped-up interface.  After all, I am talking about something generated by Dropbox itself (copying the file's or folder's link onto the system's clipboard).
