Perfect thank you, the key step i was missing was to do the move operation from the "files" folder instead of the "Dropbox" folder which no only allowed the "move" command but also allowed me to bulk select with checkboxes and move multiple files at one time. I am sorry i dont know which method i used to stop Dropbox clogging my machines up for certain but I think it was Smart select because i still see the dropbox "folder" in file explorer its just the contents are no longer 100% synched - I had no choice but to do that because having all the dropbox contents synched made all pcs and laptops unusable due to having no disk space left.

I found that Dropbox was making my Pc's and laptops unusable because synching dropbox content to them meant that Dropbox files were still using all the space on my hard drive! So now I am stopping the synching altogether and trying to just use the browser access to stop my hard drive becoming clogged up.
The problem I have now is that as I download files to my hard drive downloads folder i now need to use the File explorer "Move To" shortcut but I am only offered the Root folder on Dropbox called "Dropbox" I cant choose the folder in dropbox i want to use! Worse still using the Chrome browser to access my dropbox I can't find any way to move the newly uploaded files out of the root "Dropbox" folder into the actual folder I wanted to save the files into!! There has to be a better and easier way of doing this - any guidance gratefully recieved!!
