Unable to log out.  Cannot find preferences or log out button on Mac.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times and everytime it signs me in with the same account and I cannot switch to another account.

Hi there @salimbalaa1, thanks for reaching out to us on the Dropbox Community. 

 

Have you tried unlinking the current account from the desktop app, and signing in with your other one? 

 

Let me know how it goes, cheers!

Hey @Norma7, welcome to the Dropbox Community!

 

Your Preferences should be on the top right corner of the menu that appears when you click on your Dropbox icon that's next to your computer's clock. 

 

If you're still having trouble signing out though, you can also unlink your account from your computer by following these steps

 

Hope this helps!
