How do I get back to the old dropbox? (it worked great for me)

How do I get back to the old dropbox? (it worked great for me)

New member | Level 2

This whole thing has become WAY more complicated than I need or want. I just want it to act like it used to. I want the "App" gone from my desktop and I just want it to show up on the file explorer. This thing has started "syncing" things I don't want synced and now I'm having to go back and redo almost an entire month of accounting because of it.

I just want it to have a place to put files so I can share links and/or store things. I don't need it to auto sync anything. I don't need the app on my computer. I just want my old drop box functionality back. 

HOW do I do that?

and lastly, the "chatbot" is a total waste of my time and was useless. I want someone knowledgeable. I'm paying for a service and as old fashioned as this may sound I want to be able to "chat" with a real person when I have a problem. My time is to valuable to have to keep returning to some stupid message board in hope of someone making guesses about how to help me.

and while I'm at it. I don't need some stupid badge and I have no desire to be a member of some "community" that I have to log into to find answers that should be easily found in a appropriate help section. Go sign up for Quickbooks if you want some sort of useless support system.

Thanks for reaching out, @TheLedge.

We do appreciate your feedback about this, I will definitely pass it along to our team.

As for the Dropbox application, you can actually revert it back to the file explorer view, by following the steps here ('how to open the Dropbox desktop app').

Let me know if you have any questions!
