Hello,


I want to check my free space on dropbox.

when I enter dropbox.com my default is that I am logged in.

from various descriptions I am supposed to click the profile picture at the top of the page.

but I cannot find this.

but I find a link that says account and when I click it am lost.

What am I missing.

Klaus:

If you have Dropbox installed on your computer,, and you have the icon show in the Task Tray, this information is shown when you highlight the Dropbox item in the Task Tray.

Mind you, if you do not have Dropbox installed on your computer, and you decide to install it, the installation process is not very accessible, at least, I have never found it so, and in my opinion, it has got worse over time.

In addition to Mr. Griffith's mentioning of Windows Key+B to throw focus into the notification area (often referred to as the system tray or task tray) section of the taskbar, Microsoft is one of the best companies I know of when it comes to documenting keyboard shortcuts and making finding what you need easy.

Windows Keyboard Shortcuts Page:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12445/windows-keyboard-shortcuts 

Once opened, defaults to Windows 10 but there is a dropdown at the top that lets you change the Windows version should you need to.

Activate the Show All link near the top of the page so that every keyboard shortcut is on display and then search using whatever keyword is appropriate to what you're looking for.

Since you're running Jaws the keystroke is, Insert + F11.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

If you are using JAWS with the Desktop layout, You get to the task Tray, by pressing the JAWS short cut keystroke, INSERT/JAWS KEY+F11

If you are using JAWS with the Laptop layout, You get to the task Tray, by pressing the JAWS short cut keystroke, CAPS LOCK KEY+F11 or, you can use the Desktop layout keystroke.

Hi, thank you Dave for that information, but I do have a question of whether dropbox needs to be checked somewhere? I thaught that it had to be in the list of programs in the taskbar if i'm not mistaken?

Hi, here's what happened. When I pressed insert+f11 I was taken to the system tray. I thaught that another keystroke is missing.
