If you have set up a Dropbox online, then you may want to add a Dropbox folder on your computer that syncs with the online counterpart. If you are currently using the Web interface of Dropbox, you will need to install the Dropbox Windows application to add the folder to your sidebar. Once installed the link will automatically be created in your "Favorites" section of the sidebar. When you add a file or folder here, it will automatically be updated to correspond with the online version.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Go to the "Download Dropbox" page.

  2. 2

    Click "Restart the download" if it does not begin automatically.

  3. 3

    Double-click the "Dropbox" installer file. Click "Yes" to confirm changes to your computer.

  4. 4

    Click "Install" to install the PC client. Enter your Dropbox logon details when prompted and then click "Finish." The Dropbox link will now appear in your sidebar.
