Re: Unable to work with Word documents directly from Dropbox?

To make the Windows Dropbox client act like file explorer:

Type windows B
go to dropbox, hit enter, the context menu appears.
go to preferences,
you are in General,
tab to: "when starting dropbox go to the desktop app: uncheck this,
tab twice, "badge" do not use that,
tab twice to "open folders in" change to file explorer.
use “alt + down arrow” for pulldown,
hit enter until you leave the dialog.

Subject: [nvda] Unable to work with Word documents directly from Dropbox?


I’ve several files in a shared Dropbox folder, using the latest office 2019 with latest NVDA, and am unable to when pressing Enter on the files or file to work with it, to get the focus away from a Popup that says Dropbox, thus if I could, it’d allow me to as usual, work and navigate through the files in question. I tried Maxing via Alt+space but no luck! Also I’ve tried Control+f4, but that closes the Word document in question!

Is this an NVDA problem,or how can I get rid of the Dropbox icon that’s supposedly blocking NVDA to gain focus? Hope I made sense.
