My thoughts on the recent change on the Dropbox Notifications on the system tray.

Explorer | Level 4

Looks like a change that allows me to select my latest or team. Not helpful. Perhaps a persistent third choice that is all. Also, selecting the item opens the item instead of its folder. Again, the old days were much much better for me. I want to see the folder without right-clicking and selecting to open the folder.
