Hello everyone and thank you again for your patience and feedback.
Yesterday, the new Dropbox desktop app was updated to improve MacOS dock behavior for those of you using the new desktop app.
The new Dropbox desktop app and dock icon will no longer appear automatically at login.
To ensure your files continue to sync automatically, even if the app is closed, go to your Preferences and check the "Start Dropbox on system startup" option.
We do suggest you use the "keep in dock" option so you can easily find the new desktop app, or if you prefer, you can access the app through Finder.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions or additional feedback.
That did it! I'd like to thank you big time for making this happen - it may seem like a small thing but for a lot of us (or speaking for myself, I) really like Dropbox's native functionality we've had til now - running along quietly up in the menu bar, integrated as a folder in Finder.
I appreciate this. Thanks again.
I think the dropbox dock app is the absolutely pointless when the finder integration worked just fine.
Now we have extra menu items on right-click when accessing it. This is wasteful and counter productive.
How can we remove the extra menu items so they don't appear?
I'm also curious to who actually uses the doc app and what benifits there are.
@APPP, currently there's no option to remove the menu items that appear when you right click on the Dropbox icon.
If I've misunderstood, please get back to me and send me a screenshot (without personal info) so as to have a visual understanding.
@Macvando, we'd be more than happy to assist!
Any info you could give us would be very helpful.
Thanks in advance!
