Opening files from the Dropbox icon

Opening files from the Dropbox icon

Wu-Bacca
New member | Level 2

Currently when I click the Dropbox icon on my menu bar, it opens up one of two tabs - either my Notifications or my Recent Files (whatever I clicked last). What I'd like my Dropbox to do, upon clicking the icon, is open the folder that contains all my Dropbox files and subfolders. This is what used to be the default setting and for some reason it's now a two-click process. Does anyone know how to change that?

Hey @Wu-Bacca , I've owned Support for the Desktop Client for a good few years now, it's never done that in my time. I'm afraid this can't be changed.

Sorry if this doesn't fit your needs.

It has always been a double-click to open the folder. A single-click (or right-click) has always opened the menu.
