How can we both use Dropbox accounts on our Windows computer?

Explorer | Level 3

I have an old Dropbox account I've never used (whose password I've just reset.) My husband and I both use his Dropbox account on our Windows computer. Our Dropbox app on Win 7 is up-to-date. Is there a way for us to both use our two separate Dropbox accounts on our single household computer?

Hi there @e_canuck
 
If you're both on an individual plan (Basic, Plus, or Professional), you can set up a different use login on your computer, one for each Dropbox account. While this technically means you can have several Dropbox folders on the same computer, you'll have to switch between each user account to take advantage of Dropbox's syncing features. 
 
I hope this helped to some extent!
