how to select library for "Copy to library" option??

I have 2 libraries. One sits in my Dropbox folder. I have no problem to see it when I select it in Calibre. The other one is in a folder on my Desktop. I open it, select all the books, and try to choose the "Copy to library". It gives me a choice of libraries, but insists on looking for ~/Calibre Library instead of the one on my Dropbox (that one doesn't appear on the dropdown menu list that comes up). How do I tell it to use the correct library to copy to?

thank you!

I don't do dropbox (or any cloud storage).
For normal connected storage:

Both Libraries need to have been used by Calibre and appear on the Quick Switch List.

(Note: Delete only expunges this reference and does not remove the files, if you need to clean up the list.)

Starting in the From Library, select the books, right-click: Copy (or Copy-Delete): Select the to Library from the list.

The library doesn't appear on the Quick Switch list, even though I just opened it. I've tried installing the latest version of Calibre. How do I get it to refresh/clear the Quick Switch list?

When you open a library it will not be in the switch list, or the copy list since switching to it or copying to it makes no sense. After opening it, open another library, then it should appear in both lists.
