What if I have trouble with the Connect a Computer feature? Do I have to use it?
If you have any trouble with Connect a Computer, or if you're not able to scan the QR code, you do not need to use it. You should be able to cancel out of the screen at any point and complete the install directly on your computer.
Note: If you do not currently have files in your account, you will see the Connect a Computer prompt on the Files tab on dropbox.com.
