Thank you, Rich. Ctrl and click makes no difference, so I'll adopt your other suggestion of uninstalling and reinstalling. The only thing is that the reason I need to access the settings is that the sync process has swamped my C drive, so I need to set up some kind of selective sync. At present, my C drive is virtually full. If I uninstall with a view to reinstalling, is there a danger that I'll be permanently stuck with all those dropbox files on my C drive? I am very grateful to you for your patience, by the way. Tom
No. If you reinstall you'll still be able to use Selective Sync (assuming it fixes your missing gear problem). The only thing I'd be concerned with is being able to reinstall the app if your disk is literally that full.
Hi I just upgraded to Captain on my iMac and have the same problem--cannot delete the dropbox app.. There is no gear icon as you can see in my screenshot. I cannot drag it to the trash as it says it is open. Please help!
