I don't like the interface of the Dropbox app

New member | Level 2

I like the app. hate the interface.  I can't see the full file names.  It is hard to navigate the file structure. It is clunky, slow and counter intuitive. I want to be able to see and drag/drop between different parts of the file /folder structure easily and intuitively.

Hi @wirdway, thanks for posting!

We value user input immensely and your feedback has been noted. Could you clarify if this is for the Dropbox site, desktop app, new desktop app, or mobile app?

Keep us posted!

I mean the online interface accessible through the web.  With all this nonsense. I have to tick a check box and then click an 'eye' icon to see what is inside a folder....I want to be able to see the whole tree and move stuff around, tidy, rationalise at will. It's awful 1.png2.png

Thanks for the info, I’ve amended the images as per Community Guidelines for your own privacy.

Regarding your observation, you can click the actual folder name once to open the folder itself and view the files inside it, without having to do the extra steps you’re doing currently.

That still doesn't address what the OP wants though. They're looking for a file tree, similar to Explorer or Finder where you can expand and collaspe folders and see the content within, without having to navigate into a folder and not being able to see the rest of the structure above.

The web interface really is horrible, and has been for a long time.
