dropbox icon does not appear.
If you try to display from the notification icon, "this icon is not currently active."
It will be displayed.
Uninstall, but I tried the restart does not start dropbox.
Windows7, you use Google Chrome.
What will happen to the folder is open from the icon it?

Hi,

If you do not see the Dropbox icon in the system tray; as a first step, could you please check that Dropbox is running? Look for the Dropbox icon in the system tray.

If you don't see the icon then Dropbox is not running. Restart it from the Programs. If it is not starting (which may be the case here) could you let me know if you are seeing any error messages?

Cheers

Dropbox will not restart from the Programs.  It shows an icon by the system tray, but goes nowhere.

I have the same issue. I have reinstalled dropbox several times. It does not appear in the menu bar and when I click on the application, nothing happens.

Same problem. Re-installed dropbox several times and no icon in menu bar. Tried to start dropbox from apps list and nothing happens. Running windows 10. Dropbox was working until windows 10 updated
