The default to Recent items rather than files is terribly annoying.  I hope Dropbox decides to fix this.  If anyone learns of a better work around, please share!

Ditto, having recents as default when you login is pointless to me. Give me files as default or an option to set it as default in my account.

Add me to the list of people who would prefer Dropbox remember my view or have a setting so I don't have to see Recents when I log in...

Have to agree a completely daft idea from Dropbox, obviously they have employed a new manager guru or somebody similar and he/she needs to justify their salary!!!!!!

Obviously somebody who has only ever updated 1 file per day!!!

 

Unlike me if I back up a website or more per day I have 10's of thousands of files updating!!!

I was getting ready to make a post about this until I saw the link to this post.  I also do not like the first instance of dropbox to be recent.  Usually the most recent files for my dropbox are the camera uploads and some pictures are NSF.  The reason its a problem because if I leave my flash drive at home and need to download a ppt for a presentation at school, I log into dropbox and download.  Imagine being in class and the entire class can see the computer display on the board.  You log into dropbox to download file and bam NSF photo.

Yes, agree Spencer! The main issue is one of personal privacy. If I go to work and open Dropbox on a company computer the Recents window will show images which trust me, no one at work wants to see! This HAS TO STOP!!
