Re: Using tdropbox on W10?


, I don’t know if this will help. Here goes. 

Howdy All,


I just ran into an issue with Dropbox where it wouldn't let me acces my files.  Well, it turned out that it wanted to update and after downloading the

installer and reinstalling Dropbox navigating the folders flat out sucked, so here's how to change the necessary setting for easier navigation.


1. Open Dropbox from the system tray, tab to, Access and Manage your Dropbox settings button, and press enter.


2. Now tab to, Preferences, and press enter.


3. On the General tab, tab to the, Open folders in Dropbox combobox, open this combobox and choose the, Explorer, option.  With Jaws you can open this

combobox with Alt + down arrow and then up arrow to the Explorer option and press enter to close the combobox.  Now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save

and close preferences.

Note:  This can act a little tricky so it might take a couple of attempts to get the Explorer settings change to stick.

If you have a shortcut key that opens Dropbox options, after you openDropbox up arrow to, Preferences, press enter and follow step 3 from above.

Take care.

Hi, I'm using the latest version of NVDA, and no dropbox addon.


When I signed in to my db account on my pc, I got the online recommended

option button for syncing.


I didn't see another button, but i felt like there was one called local.


I have all my dropbox folder on another drive, there's 123 gigs of stuff

in there, and I didn't want it moving my local files from the drive,

then trying to redownload them again.
