I am a longtime Dropbox user. They were one of the first companies to offer seamless cloud storage and file sharing, and I have yet to see another service come along and offer something good enough (and free enough) to make me switch. That being said, I hate their native Mac app and use this little tip to avoid using it. In this article, we will tell you How to make Dropbox open folders in Finder. Let’s begin!
Well, if you hate the desktop version of the Dropbox app as much as I do. Here’s how to make Dropbox open folders in Finder.
Dropbox is a convenient solution for keeping files and documents in sync across multiple devices. If you use a Mac and want to add a Dropbox folder to the Finder sidebar. Download and then install the free Dropbox for Mac application.
Make Dropbox open folders in Finder
Make sure the Dropbox app is running on your Mac and follow these steps.
- Click the Dropbox icon in your Mac’s menu bar located at the top of your screen.
- In the window that pops up, find your account icon located in the far top right and then click the down arrow next to it.
- This should activate a dropdown menu, where you will see a Preferences tab. Tap it.
- We are now in the General pane of the Preferences tab, and you should see the option ‘Open folders in.’ Tap it, and select Finder.
Now anytime you tap the Dropbox icon in your menu bar and select Folders, your Dropbox folder will open in a native Finder window. It feels a lot more integrated with macOS, and then again it allows you to skip dealing with the desktop Dropbox app.
