Every time i install Dropbox on my Windows 10 Pro laptop, it is installing Dropbox in S-mode. How do I get a Dropbox installation in Non-S mode? Thank you.

Hi @Sach; welcome to our Community!

 

It sounds like your machine isn't allowing installations outside the Microsoft Store and you'll need to switch out of it before you can use our regular desktop app. 

 

Once this is done -and assuming that your computer meets our requirements- you'll be able to download and install our desktop app as normal.

 

Keep me posted on your progress!

Hi Walter;

                   Thank you very much. Your suggestion to install from outside Microsoft Store worked. 

Thanks again.

Sincerely;
