GeneralOffice 13 sucks more than ever PinmemberDalek Dave21-Feb-14 12:12 
So here we go.
 
I want Dropbox as a standard save location on Excel, but of course W8 doesn't like that as they want you to use CryDive.
 
After faffing about I find a small batch file download that is supposed to do it for you.
 

Hooray!
 
Except it doesn't work.
It doesn't recognize the OS.
 
In the end I had to start plonking around in the registry to see if that would solve the problem.
 
Still no joy.
 
Eventually managed to edit the batch file, enter the dropbox path and managed to add it.
 
What should take 30 seconds took 30 minutes!
 

PITA
