More than one account

More than one account

WalterVR
New member | Level 2

I have two Dropbox accounts on 2 different mail adresses:
- One for my tasks in our local parish
- One for my tasks in a ex-student organisation

Since this weekend I have a new PC. I installed Dropbox for the first account.

The directory appeared in Windows Explorer.

 

I can logon on the second account and see the contents in my browser.

 

But the app and Windows Explorer remain on the first account.

 

How can I switch between both accounts?

You cannot I'm afraid unless one is a paid for account that allows linking as per https://help.dropbox.com/accounts-billing/multiple-accounts/link-unlink-two-accounts.

 

To use two accounts on the computer you'll need to either use one via the web or set up a new user account on your computer and log in/out on each account. To do so set up a new user account and then install Dropbox again and link to the new account.
