How do I get back to the page to choose local saving of files and not on-line syncing?

How do I get back to the page to choose local saving of files and not on-line syncing?

Hello,

May some tell me how to get to the page that controls the choice to do online syncing (default choice) vs local save from the home page?  I downloaded the Dropbox App to my new computer and exited the page before I chose to choose local saving and wish to return to that page.  

Thank you.

Hi @BWMDJD63, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

Can you let me know if you completed the set up of the app, or have you not completed this yet?

 

This is a setting that you can change at any time through the desktop app preferences. So, if you completed the set up or you're not able to go back to that page, you can change this with the steps outlined under "Make files added to the web default to online-only" here.

 

Of course, you'll change this setting to "Local" rather than "Online only".

 

Let me know if this helps!
