Adobe Bridge 2022 on Monterey — Can't access my desktop

Hi All:

 

I can't figure out how to access my desktop through Bridge:

  • MacBook Pro M1
  • macOS Monterey 12.1
  • Bridge 2022 12.0.1 246

 

 >  System Prefs > Security and Privacy:

  • Have added Bridge 2022 to Accessibility (according to one post), and
  • Full Disk Access and Files and Folders (another post).
  • Have restarted Bridge and rebooted my MacBook.

 

What am I still missing?

 

~Barb

Thank you, Gary!!!

 

Here's what worked:

  • Clicked the Dropbox icon on Menu Bar to open the desktop app
  • Clicked on my avatar > Preferences > Backups > Set up > Unchecked  Mac (which included desktop, documents and download)
    backup.png

 

Result—desktop visible.

Hi Barb,

 

Gosh, you're the 2nd person today describing this problem. What I told the previous person was to get ~Cash Cleaner (from NorthernSW.com) (the "~" is because they do a big update of their software after every release.)

 

I told him to run the full maintenance option from Cache Cleaner (10 free days), restart, and see if that solved the problem. I never did learn what OS he was on.

 

Let me know if that does anything to help.

Hi Gary!

 

I hope you are doing well. I missed that post, evidently. I'll give it a shot at the end of the week. I'm teaching this week and don't want to do anything until the class is over. 

 

Thanks,

 

~Barb

Hi Barb,

 

Doin' well, hope you are too.

 

One more question for you: what happens if you take an image from a folder on the desktop (while in the Finder) and drag it onto Bridge in the Dock?

 

Have a GREAT class!

Good morning, Gary!

 

It just ignores me. 😕

P.S. This is a brand new computer and yesterday was my first time using Bridge. I'm still thinking it's a permission issue—Macs are so protective.

Barb, I just saw this. Do you think this might be an option for you as well?

Hi @Barb Binder ,

 

This could happen with icloud syncing your desktop/documents. Apple has introduced this option while ago by default. You have to turn those off to access these folders. You can google it to disable it or here is a link https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7836605

@gary_sc:

 

Dropbox!! I have already run up against dropbox issues with the new online-only storage defaults. I will look into that.

You lucky. I can't get Dropbox to show up in the system tray. I even downloaded and reinstalled Dropbox, but it doesn't show up either on my MacBook Pro or on my iMac. 

Hence, I can't even change the permissions. Anybody have any idea what I could be doing wrong? It has always been in the system tray until I recently upgraded to a full paid version of Dropbox.
