Un-double 'Folder' icon in popover [Possibly already implemented+bug]

Un-double 'Folder' icon in popover [Possibly already implemented+bug]

Hello,

 

A small improvement idea I thought of recently:

In the popover (or however it's called) when clicking the Dropbox icon in the statusbar, clicking the 'Folder' button reveals another two buttons: 'Open Dropbox folder' and 'Launch Dropbox website'.

 

Mac popover

 

I would love to see an additional button (with a 'Web' or 'Browser' icon), so that the 'Folder' icon can go the the Dropbox folder and the 'Browser' icon to the website with one less click.

 

Mac popover w/ browser icon

 

I know, it's only one click of difference, but it would make it two clicks instead of three.

 

Cheers!

 

P.S. Apologies for the low quality of editing, it's just to visualise.

Odd. It's already like that for Windows, and has been for a long time.

Very strange.

 

On my work-PC it looks like this:

 

Windows 7 Enterprise

 

Both versions (my personal Mac and on the corporate PC) say they're version 20.3.16, which is strange, because according to Official release notes Dropbox is at version 16.4.30.

Ignore the Release Notes page. Dropbox does too. (I'll probably get in trouble for that :scream: )

 

The best place to see the last releases is on the forums.

 

And that's the same version that I'm running. The difference is that you seem to be on Windows 7, while I'm on 10.

Ok, that rules out being on a different version.

 

I'll check on my Windows 10 at home this evening then.

If it looks like yours, then I'll edit this post to be a Mac-specific suggestion.

Update:

On my Windows 10 PC, it looks the same as on my other computers:

The only difference I can see is that you're a Basic user (you have an Upgrade link in the window) and I'm a Pro user. That being said, the software is the same for both account levels, so there should be no differences.

 

I'll poke one of the Dropbox people to see if they know why.

Would the fact that we have two accounts linked together change some functionality? 

 

Also. At www.dropbox.com/account towards the bottom are you ticked to join any of the betas?

I only have the one account in this example. I refuse to link any accounts to my main Pro account because it would result in the Dropbox folder being renamed, and that's no bueno.
