Revert back to desktop app from Explorer

Revert back to desktop app from Explorer

William_M
New member | Level 2

I would like to move my Dropbox folder to another drive.

 

I found instructions on how to do that using Dropbox's desktop app here: https://help.dropbox.com/pt-br/installs-integrations/desktop/move-dropbox-folder

 

However, Dropbox automatically opens Explorer and not the desktop app.

 

I need to either...

 

1. Find a way to move my dropbox folder to another drive via Explorer, or

2. Swith from Explorer to the desktop app.

 

Not sure how to do either. Any help will be appreciated.

Don't double-click the icon. Single-click to get the menu and from there you can select Preferences. You can also CTRL-click for the legacy menu.

Hi @William_M, as mentioned by @Rich, you need to click the Dropbox icon once to get to the preferences.

You can see more information on this from here.
