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 Dropbox 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: Dropbox 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 Dropbox icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: Dropbox for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Dropbox 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

  • Too much money for notta lotta “service”

    By The Notorious t.i.g
    After the recent update, DropBox stopped working properly for camera-roll upload on my iPad. Their solution? Remove the app, forget the network, fully restart the iPad, re-connect to the network, and re-install the app. Seriously? Good thing I have nothing else to do ... oh, wait. Basement flooded. So yeah, I have something else to do that's rather urgent. Good news is that yes, this did in fact resolve the issue, but really, I have other things to do in my life than reset apps with updates that fail. Especially when paying $75/month for the business version. For $75 a month I expect a MUCH better UI, amazing support, in-file search (not just the file titles), and so much more. Instead, we get the un/re-install merry-go-round, an ok UI, low-availability support (US normal business hours only), and an amazingly klugey sync setup. Heaven help you if your Mac has an external drive. What happens when you get a new Mac? It downloads everything from Dropbox again, even though all I did was remove the USB plug from the old machine to the new. Good job, Dropbox. Well done. Now I gotta wait for 4T of data to re-synch. Their super awesome support response? Well, we told you external drives might not work as expected. I’m totally looking for another service. Seriously, $900 a year for this? I feel like an idiot for locking myself into this “service”.
  • It’s useful BUT...

    By Rhobson
    My main complaint is the “recents” tab. I *REALLY* hate that there’s no way to disable or at least clear it. I use my Dropbox for a variety of files, from scanned docs to my pets photos, and sometimes opening the app to see a bunch of scanned bills when I just want to show my cat to an acquaintance can be frustrating, to say the least. BTW, the iCloud disaster should’ve reached everyone to not store nud3s in the “cloud”... 😂😂 With that said, Dropbox is useful. There’s little to discuss in this matter. BUT - and there’s always a BUT - use it with an extra layer of conscience. The “cloud” is just another person’s computer, after all. Don’t store your most private information there, especially in clear text or without any kind of cryptography. Think in-depth security, even though DropBox “promises” not to peek at your stored information, nothing really guarantees that someone will be able to access your info there.
  • Okay...

    By SwordInTheLight
    Hello, I just wanted to say that Dropbox is actually a really great place to store Office files, sorry if I was harsh earlier. I wouldn’t trust it with all of your files, because I’ve had a lot of issues with the iWork things and all that. The app itself works fine this way. Just wanted to say that. Suggestions: -Maybe we can do a one-time payment for a little extra storage? Like pay $1 for 2 extra gigs. I would definitely pay a few dollars for that. -Support for Apple files. As I’m writing this, there’s no way to edit Pages/Numbers/Keynote files from Dropbox. I use Pages a lot and so do a lot of other people, so you need to add support for those. -Once, I opened the Dropbox app and found that it wouldn’t let me create any Office files. (Like when I clicked “new file,” the option for creating Office files wasn’t there.) I signed out of Dropbox and tried to sign back in, but it said “there was an error” when I tried to sign in even though I got the sign-in info correct! This wasn’t a huge deal since I was able to log back in a half hour later with the create files feature back, but you might want to make sure it doesn’t happen again. -PowerPoint files take FOREVER to load up! (At least for me they do.) Please make it quicker. Thank you for reading!!!
  • Stop changing stuff!

    By Dudebraj9000
    Why do you guys constantly insist on changing the whole interface of the app? Seriously. Every update things are different, and not in a good way. Also, I can’t scroll down on my synced folders anymore. It makes my files disappear when I try. This started after the recent update. I’m not one of those “let me speak to your manager” kind of people but I just had to let you know how bad my experience has been so far. Please fix it, and leave it that way unless there’s a really important bug to fix. Also gave you 5 stars because I know you’re hard working people over there and I pay for pro. Don’t hate the app, just hate the constant changes to the overall look of the app that honestly seem more like a step backward than forward.

  • I hate the app and website

    By @Sigil
    They are really pushing this app for business users. The UI and "features" are for business and collaboration users. Why can't I sort the files by kind with folders at the top? If I am moving a file, will I be moving it into an other file or a folder? I can't export anything out of the app. I think it is time for me to move on.
  • Sadly - since iOS 12 can’t view files

    By Neotk9711
    I deleted and reinstalled app but to no avail. Viewing files just spins and file never renders. Same file I can open on mobile safari but not in the App. Contacted their support and got a lame response to delete and reinstall app - did that but didn’t help. I have been a paid subscriber for years and it is surprising to see such a basic bug.

    By josirose
    WHAT have you done Dropbox ??!! After the latest updates your app no longer works on both my iPhones 8 and 6+. Both are up to date running iOS 12.1 Am I going to have to cancel my subscription now ?
  • Children Doing The Quality Control

    By Joliver332
    Most of my files are missing... no indication of them being updated or syncing or a data wheel turning... just says folder is empty.... been waiting four hours now no files... is quality control just an out dated concept? Where are my files?
  • Awesome app! At least it used to be.

    By ATX media guy
    I use Dropbox daily on my PC, iPhone and iPad. It is incredibly useful. I put manuals, school homework (which gets shared with my grandson’s mom), pictures and so much more! I’ve gotten in the habit of downloading every owner’s manual for every tool, device, camera I have. I often refer to it on my iPad. There’s the recent problem. Dropbox has become unreliable on my Apple devices. I get the “loading” circle for 10 or 15 minutes before anything shows up! Sometimes contents never appear. Dropbox used to be instantaneous. Oh, and I have a 220 mbps download speed, so that’s not the issue. If they fix this I’ll enthusiastically give it 5 stars. But right now it’s almost useless.
  • New update now I can’t attach files from Dropbox to email

    By dbepstein
    I tested this with google drive iCloud Drive everything works as before. Dropbox when I select the file it doesn’t attach it gives me the option to change it name
  • Saving Offline

    By Byhiu
    I’m wanting to make a certain folder in my Dropbox available offline. But I need to make sure before I do so. That the contents of this folder that I’m wanting to make offline to view whenever with data or not.. that it won’t be automatically updated into my iPhone camera roll. Or put into a folder in my iOS camera roll. That would be BAD... very very BAD. so that’s my concern. I need to make sure that these sensitive confidential files won’t be seen ANYWHERE else except offline in the Dropbox app. And not in my personal camera roll. Please advise. Respectfully, Dropbox 1TB user. :)

    I have loved this app since the beginning. But since the last few updates, it is constantly freezing on iPhone. I have 40 files that refute upload. They need to fix this.
  • Wow!

    By odog1
    Awesome app, love it!
  • What did you do?

    By SnookyP
    I used to be able to attach documents to emails when replying to customers requests for info. Now when I select a document to attach it takes me to a window to change the file name! HUH?The app also hangs up when opening a PDF.
