The gear icon is located on the Dropbox client that you install on your computer. Click the Dropbox icon in your system tray (Windows) of menu bar (Mac) and the gear will be visible in the upper left corner.

Wherever the gear icon is referenced, both here and in the Help Centre, it's in connection with the Dropbox client.

Click the Dropbox client icon in your system tray/menu bar and a box will open with the gear icon in one corner.
