Hi there @mohamedmhamoud, thanks for reaching out to us here!

Just out of curiosity, when you change a settings within the preferences, do you click "Apply" before "OK"?

When you check again after changing a setting, does this reset immediately or does the setting stay until you restart your device?

Finally, can you let me know which version of the desktop app you're running? You can see this by hovering over the Dropbox icon in your system tray.

Let me know and we'll go from there!

Thanks for getting back to me @mohamedmhamoud!

If you haven't already, can you restart your device to refresh the desktop app, since the app was closed, and check the settings again?

If the changes you make in the settings are still not sticking, please try uninstalling the desktop app and then reinstalling from here.

Let me know how it goes!
