Can't Right Click on Dropbox icon Win10 in Notification area

Level 5

This problem has not been resolved... I Just installed latest Dropbox version on a clean Windows 10 Install Build 1803. Can't right click on the notification icon unless I drop text scaling to 125% from 150%. I have 4K monitors and 125% is too small for me to use. Soooo.... Dropbox support, please fix this issue.

Sure... Yes I am talking about the Desktop App.

I am at work so I can't get you a screenshot... But all that appears its that the icon located in the icon tray in the lower right is greyed out. If I right click on it, nothing happens. If I hit CTRL-RIGHT CLICK then the menus pop up as they normally do.  If I drop the Screen Scaling down to 125% from 150% the icon begins working again normally...

Hi @DaveA68, thanks for your reply on this & for clarifying the steps you take. Much appreciated!
 
Could you please confirm if you are having this issue with any other program on your taskbar? Also, could you verify if you have physically connected your mouse to your device in question, or if you’re logging in through a remote session?
 
Thanks in advance, and I look forward to hearing back from you! upside-down face

No All other programs look ok... I know because I use right click to close them like Skype for example or to open antivirus panel etc.

 

Funny thing is that if I RDP into the machine (Remote Desktop) then the Icon Works normally. I assume thats because it is using less than 150% Scaling.

 

Working locally is the problem.
