How can I set the app to open files and folders in Finder/Windows Explorer instead of the new app?

With this new update, how do I set it back to just double clicking the icon goes to my dropbox folder instead of this new app thing? I don't like it, it makes an unneccessary extra step. Sorry if this is the wrong like location to put this question but I didn't feel it fit neatly anywhere and there's no place to contact any actual customer support. Had dropbox since about 2014 and this is the first issue I've ever really had with it.
