How can I view all my files from the desktop app?

Level 2

Apparently Dropbox has altered its access pathway. I used to get — what I wanted — a top level overview of all files arranged in all folders. Now I gert a screen that only shows “recent activity,” with a handful of new files. This make it impossible for me to scroll through a folder and review any and all files.

Re: New format

Hey there @peterconn,
From what I understand you’re referring to the desktop app, right? Once you click on the Dropbox icon in your menu bar/system tray, you can click the folder icon along the top of the small window. This will take you to your Dropbox folder on your device to view your files and folders.
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions - Cheers!
