How can I start Dropbox automatically for one user but not for another - Windows 10

How can I start Dropbox automatically for one user but not for another - Windows 10

I have Dropbox installed on my Windows 10 laptop but do not want it to automatically start when a particular user logs in (because there are other devices it syncs to for that user and to do it on this PC would exceed the number of devices for the free version).  Is there any way to achieve this?  Many thanks.

Hi @scpetch, thanks for posting!

The app can have different settings applied for each profile on the computer, which means that each profile would need to install the app.

Do you currently have the app installed on this particular profile?

Let me know and we'll go from there!
