disable the new dropbox app and go back to a normal explorer window?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I let dropbox upgrade and install the new dropbox app and now it is constantly crashing on windows 10. I have a fairly new PC and it takes at least 10 seconds to load the dropbox app window. I do not understand what is going on... is there anyway to make dropbox work where when you click the folder it launches just the standard explorer window again? I love dropbox, but hate this new update.

I will give this a try.
The wierd thing is it only affected the primary account (i.e. my secondary account on this PC was opening as folders as normal)
