Download the Dropbox desktop application.

Using Dropbox on your computer is just like using any other folder on your hard drive, except the files you drag into your Dropbox folder automatically sync online and to any other computers or mobile devices linked to your account.

The installation of Dropbox, on any device, is straightforward. You will be asked to create a Dropbox account during installation or to enter your username and password if you have already signed up for the Dropbox service.

You will also have the option of changing the location of your Dropbox folder. The default location will be fine for most users, but you can place it in any folder that you’d like. You can also change the location of the folder later by accessing the Preferences menu.
