    When I right-click on a folder and choose Send To, Dropbox is not an option.

    How can I activate this?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, just noticed it's windows 10.

    The last bit of this article might help. http://www.thewindowsclub.com/remove-move-to-dropbox-context-menu
    Dropbox context menu missing or not working
    On the other hand, if you find that your Dropbox context menu item is missing or not working, try the following.

    Re-register the concerned DLL file DropboxExt.22.dll file which is responsible for its integration.

    Open a command prompt windows, type the following and hit Enter:

    regsvr32 “C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Dropbox\bin\DropboxExt.22.dll”
    If this does not work, you may need to repair or reinstall the Dropbox software.

    Thanks.

    Didn't work for me.

    Don't want to uninstall/reinstall until I see if someone else has a suggestion.

    If it's just the 'send to' context menu item that you want, you can always create the shortcut yourself;

    Thanks.

    I think I may have a problem then.

    If I do a search in Explorer for shell:sendto, or if I go long hand an look via C:\Users\<yourusername>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
    I cannot find SendTo.

    In fact, when I choose C:\Users\ there are three folder, defaultuser0, "my name" (though not as I would have written it) and Public.

    There is no AppData listed in any of those three folders.

    BUT, if I do a search of C: for AppData, it says it's in the "my name" folder - as one would expect. Yet, all that is in the "my name" folder are; Contacts, Desktop, Documents, Downloads etc....etc....down to Videos....

    No AppData.

    The only thing I've done since I installed Windows 10 two weeks ago is change it so that it doesn't ask for a Password on boot-up. Otherwise, it's as per installation.

    So, where could the AppData folder be?

    Thanks.

    Sorted!

    In C:\View I selected Show Hidden Folders.

    I could now see the AppData folder.

    I was then able to browse to the Send To folder and I dragged Dropbox to it.

    I can now Right/Click/SendTo/Dropbox.

    Thanks.

    D.
