Hi sterni0104, you could add a shortcut dropbox icon to your desktop, that way it's always visible and more accessible than on a toolbar (that can be hidden). To do this it depends on your operating system, but as a rough guide, go to your computer programs and when you see the dropbox program, just right click your mouse and it will give you the option to create a shortcut, and then it will be added to your desktop. Hope that helps, cheers Jodie
