Can I revert to the old "show in finder" so that it actually shows in the Mac Finder

Can I revert to the old "show in finder" so that it actually shows in the Mac Finder

Hello I rely on being able to click links sent to me with dropbox files. When i open them on browser I used to be able to then click "show in finder" and have the files located in my smartsync folders show up. Now when i click "show in finder" some new Dropbox software opens instead. I do NOT want to use that dropbox version of the finder as it is much harder to navigate. Is there a way to revert?

Hi @noah123123, thanks for joining the Community!

It sounds like you've got the Dropbox desktop application set as the default.

Could you try these steps to enable the Finder option?

Keep me updated with any progress!
