Hey there @jsprezzatura  - how are you today?

From what I understand you'd like to access two separate Dropbox accounts via the desktop app on your girlfriend's computer; correct me if I'm wrong please.

Have you considered unlinking your girlfriend's account from the desktop app and link yours afterwards so you can work on the file you want?
