How to log into my account and delete files and folders?

PLEASE HELP>>>

 

I am trying to get into my Dropbox account and DELETE many files / folders, but cannot seem to do this.

 

Please help and advise.

 

I do not want to upgrade my account.

 

I've been OUT OF DROPBOX for a while because I had a stroke. Today is the first time in a long time to try to access  my account and DELETE unused or unwated files / folders

 

Please HELP.

 

Thanks,

Scott

Why? What happens when you try to sign in? Are you getting an error message? How long has it been since you last used the account?

I AM able to log into my account, but cannot figure out how to DELETE folders. I'm OVER my space quota and that is why I want / need to delete old, irrelevant folders. HELP

 

Thank you,

Scott

Hey Scott, sorry for jumping in. Are you accessing your Dropbox account via our website or the desktop/mobile app?
