the dropbox icon disappeared from the uppermost bar on my Mac OSX laptop (where the wifi icon is). how can I get it back?
First, just see if you can launch the application again. If it's still installed, it should be in the list of applications that you can open. If you don't see it, just download the app and reinstall it.
Same thing happened to three of my computers recently (we have seven- 4 old and 3 new - but all seven share the same dropbox). The DB Icon disapeared from the uppermost bar on three computers, but the dropbox folder remains in the Finder windows on those three computers, and the green circle icons on the right of each inner folder are "gone." On the other computers DB seems normal - the green icon is on the right of each folder is there, etc, but they do not have the updated info that was saved on the computers without the Icon. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I transfered some videos I edited yesterday to Dropbox and sent links to several people. However, this morning the DB icon is gone from the menu bar. So I clicked the app to start DB. Nothing happened. I rebooted my Mac and it still wasn't there so I re-downloaded the app and rebooted my Mac again . Still no menu bar icon. I clicked the app again and nothing happened. I've never had this problem before in 5 years of using Dropbox on this same Mac, except that a couple of weeks ago I upgraded to OSX Mojave 10.14.5, and I had to redownload the DB app because it disappeared after the install, but it's been there ever since until this morning. It was there last night, so why isn't it here this morning?
