I don't see the selective sync settings on my laptop. Any ideas why?

I am using Windows 10.  I would like to select folders to synch on my laptop. Looking to access the "Selective Synch" feature and following the instructions here: https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/sync-uploads/selective-sync-overview

I open the Dropbox app. I click the "Gear" icon and it shows me options for Account, Security, Cache, Feedback, and About -- but there is no "Preferences" and there is no "Synch" 

What am I missing?

Thanks.

Sounds like you have installed the mobile version from an app store rather than the full client from www.dropbox.com/dowloading
