If you want to install and use the Dropbox app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Dropbox in the search bar and press Search. Click on Dropbox application icon. A window of Dropbox on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • A Thought: A Replay Option for Audio Files

    By Suave The Performer
    As a songwriter, it's pretty annoying to have to go back and forth between the app and my notes. If you added a replay option for audio files, you could take this platform to a whole new level. Writers across the globe would really appreciate it!
  • Very happy longtime user

    By Gfiz
    I’m not a heavy mobile user, but I do some basic editing, sharing, etc. The app has been flawless for me. I AM a heavy user of the scanning feature, though, and it’s top notch. I do all my scanning this way. Thanks for such a great feature!
  • Very disappointed that I would have to pay to have files saved locally

    By JimRaleigh
    I’m a long time user of DropBox, and have always been very pleased with it, however, I recently tried to save a file locally on my iPad for use when I was away from WiFi and discovered that that feature has now been removed from the standard Dropbox account. I’ll be moving all my files off Dropbox to OneDrive - I get 1 TB of storage there plus Office for my laptop and devices for less than I’d have to pay for just 1 TB on Dropbox - doesn’t make sense.
  • Background sync doesn’t work unless you leave app open

    By paul536754
    Background sync doesn’t work unless you leave app open. Edit in response to developer comment: I did have background upload over cellular on. Basically it just doesn’t work well. What if I don’t change locations? Why should it matter for uploading? Why do you need location? Why arbitrarily choose to not upload large files? I expect background sync to work fully for everything otherwise I need another solution and one that doesn’t use 25% of my battery!
  • Almost really good

    By mgar5544
    The scan feature has been really nice but one thing has driven me crazy. Using a phone, how hard is it to zoom into the document or receipt you are trying to capture? Not really that hard!! I personally don’t mind if i have a piece of the surface the doc is sitting on captured with the image. What drives me crazy, however, is ALWAYS having to adjust the image to actually capture what i intended to. The success of the auto detect feature is less than 50% for me and that’s only because I’ve gotten better at tricking it. Long story short, please Dropbox, at least have an option to disable the auto detect feature. I keep thinking this is going to fixed with updates but it hasn’t.
  • Won’t Sign In

    By Gi Hutchinson
    For some strange reason my account won’t sign in. It’s saying “signing in” for the longest amount of time. This is definitely a problem with the app and not my iPhone
  • Background upload on iPad

    By Arhaef
    Background upload doesn’t work on iPad!!@#!@ Otherwise I love this app
  • Needs a repeat option

    By roxi110318
