I have found that you need to click the DB icon on the desktop (assuming you have put one there) twice. The first click just launches the program and starts it synchronizing. Then, you must wait until it is ready (up to date) as reported in its icon in the systems tray. Then, you click the desktop icon once again; which actually launches the application.

No, it doesn't apply if you don't have the Dropbox app on your machine.

If you don't have a dropbox account, but do download files from other
people, does any of this apply?

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. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go dodgers!
If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!
