Windows 10: getting the fiepath to document in dropbox

    getting the fiepath to document in dropbox

    I've got a folder on my desktop which contains certain scripts. I need to get the file path from that folder, to a file in dropbox.

    I've already tried this without success :"C:\Users\myname\Documents\Dropbox\filename"

    (This is the file path I get when I click Shift and right-click on the destination document).

    Any advice? Thanks!

    Just to clarify, when you shift-click->"copy as path" on a file in your Dropbox you get "C:\Users\myname\Documents\Dropbox\filename"? I believe the default Dropbox location is c:\users\myname\Dropbox.

    But when you run a (batch?) script it says it can't find the file?

    What happens if you open a command prompt and do "dir C:\Users\myname\Documents\Dropbox\filename"?
