I don't want S Mode

I don't want S Mode

New member | Level 2
I have a new laptop and would like to have Dropbox within my File Explorer. When I try to download the app it is downloading S Mode.... Can someone please tell me how to integrate it into File Explorer or how to download the regular DropBox App and NOT S Mode? No matter how I go about it it always opens up the download for S Mode.

If you're installing it from the Microsoft Store, you're going to get the S Mode app. For the full application, you need to download it from the Dropbox website.

 

 

Keep in mind that if your laptop has an ARM processor, you won't be able to use the full application and you will need to use the S Mode app.

Thank you for your help!

I too, am trying to download the full app, not this abbreviated S version. I used your link above and it still took me back to downloading the S version. Does that necessarily mean that I have an ARM processor?  My laptop is 4 or 5 yrs old.

Hey @Cheri2, I can suggest trying out these steps to see if the device happens to be able to run both in and out of S mode.

 

Hope this helps!
