Windows 10 Start Menu doesn't work if dropbox is installed

New member | Level 2

Hello,

 

I've been using Dropbox for several years now, and for the past 1-2 years I've been using it on my current windows 10 machine, with no issues.

 

Today my start menu stopped working, I tried fixing it using all methods offered by Microsoft and some from a few other websites - none worked. Then I saw a comment where somebody suggested uninstalling Dropbox, which I tried and sure enough it worked.

 

So my start menu now works, but if I install dropbox again it stops working. Does anybody know how to resolve this? I need both my start menu and dropbox!

I'm on Windows 10 and I'm not seeing this issue. I'm using the latest beta version of Dropbox. Might be worth a shot.

Thanks for your reply.

 

The solution for me was to unlink and re-link dropbox using the instructions given here :

My start menu and dropbox are now working fine slightly smiling face
