Re: Dropbox not auto opening

Hi there @RobSantini! Along with what @Mark mentioned, if you’re running the current stable version of the Dropbox desktop app (53.4.67), I'd kindly recommend having a look through this link to see steps on how to check if the Dropbox app is listed as one of your Startup items or add it to your Startup folder. Let us know what you find! grinning face with smiling eyes

Re: Dropbox not auto opening

Hi, here is a thread talking about a similar issue. Maybe you can get some useful tips there. My suggestion is to uninstall Dropbox from your Mac first and reinstall the latest version to see if the problem could be solved. slightly smiling face
