HI

I share a PC with my partner we both have separate dropbox accounts, I download the app for PC but it only recognises my dropbox. How o we get to choose the other account? 

 

Help much appreciated.

Create a second user account on the computer, sign in to it and install Dropbox under your own computer user account. There is no easy way to switch Dropbox account while you're sharing a user account on the computer.
