Default Help geeks- IT question- dropbox

Hi,

I need some help from an IT geek please.

I regularly use Dropbox for image transfer and have recently been sent some imagery from a supplier in China. Somehow between logging on and opening the file they sent me, I have managed to change my dropbox homepage into Chinese and I can't read anything. no idea how I've done it and also no idea how to undo.

Anyone?

Help me please

I should add that I know the little icon at the bottom of the right hand corner lets you select the language however I only seem to be able to chaneg the homepage it them goes back to chinese..


Ta

KC

If Patsy's link doesn't help, send me a screen shot of the screen in Dropbox where you think you changed things, and I'll see if I can help.
