Icon Status size Desktop app

Explorer | Level 4

I'm running the Dropbox app on a Mac. The status Icons for the files in my Dropbox app (not the icons for the file itself) are super small. Is it possible to make the status Icon larger in size?

Thanks for getting back to me, @JGBen

From your screenshot, it looks like the two folders are set to be previewed as a list. 

If you select the icons option from the very top of your Finder, you should be able to see a larger preview of the file/folder and syncing icons. 

From there, you should also be able to make both file/folder and syncing icons larger by pressing Command+J to customize their size and the spacing between each item. 

Let me know if this helps and I'll make sure to get back to you as soon as possible!

Hey @JGBen, welcome to the Dropbox Community!

From what I understand, you're referring the syncing icons on your files, such as  and 

Although you can't customize the size of these icons, they change in size in relation to the preview option that you have set your files to. 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

I'm not sure I understand which settings your referring to when you said "size in relation to the preview option that you have set your files to".

Are you talking about the settings on my computer's "view options" or is there a setting in the dropbox app or my account online that would change the size of the dropbox icons?

My computer is set to view file icons at the largest size available (see attached screen shot). and as you can see the dopbox status icon is still very small.

Thanks for your help.Screen Shot 2019-12-02 at 12.38.59 PM.pngScreen Shot 2019-12-02 at 12.38.59 PM.png
