4 Rating: 4 - 75,428 votes

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

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes
Download Android

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • Never liked Dropbox and still don’t

    By Conan the Reviewer
    This app is confusing and hard to use. A friend sent me a Dropbox link of a song file, and when I clicked on it I got the option to either get the song in the browser or “download the app,” which I had already done. I clocked the latter option, and it just brought me to the App Store. When I clicked open no notice appeared about the download; it just took me to the app. As far as I can tell there’s no way to search through emails or Facebook messenger from the Dropbox app to download the link. I then went back to the link and clicked the other option, “open in browser,” which took me to a playable file but again gave me no options to download the file. I’ve always had problems with Dropbox, and the only time I use it is when someone shares something with me on it. This was one of those times, and though this was my first time using the iPhone app, I came away from it disappointed as usual.
  • Great except keeps losing recent files

    By Paul, just Paul ...
    99% of the time when I used this app, it is to do something with one of the three or four files I have most recently edited. For some reason this app keeps losing track of those, which makes it take much longer to use. Last time it was because they forced dropbox paper towns artificially find a recent list, this time the paper staff is back again and all my recent files have disappeared. There is no option to remove the paper spam from the recent list. For bonus points they say it’s easy to contact them if you have problems about the app. It isn’t. When I finally found a way, their support page doesn’t work; it won’t let me choose a device and therefore won’t let submit a ticket. This is of course on my iPhone, the same device the app is running on, using safari, the default and dominant browser. Ridiculous.
  • 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!!!
  • A Useful Feature To Add

    By Ginger2541
    Y’all should really add a playlist option. For example, this would be useful for people who may be making their own music or for friends of people who make their own music. We like to listen to music that was sent to us that may not be perfect enough for the music artist to put on itunes or other platforms yet. I have a close friend who sent me songs he made and they are amazing, but I cannot listen to them all right after the other because I have to hand pick each one after a song is done playing. This makes it hard when driving; people don’t want to look at their phones and decide which song to pick next because that’s dangerous. I don’t know how hard it is to make this playlist feature happen, but I hope y’all will atleast think about it and get back to me. Much appreciated ☺️

  • Latest Version-Terrible Upload Times

    By Frustated Dropbox Patron
    I am a Drop Box customer and it’s IPhone App is an essential need for my business. Typically the upload times have been very fast. Unfortunately they have been very slow. Initially I thought it was a Wi-Fi or cell data reception, but it has been slow no matter what internet connection I have for the last 30 plus days. I hope they fix it very soon.
  • Verification process is extreme, limited features

    By Mktingmatt
    The recaptcha process is horrible, why do I have to roll the ball 20 times only to learn my passcode is wrong? It was on a trusted device. Just horrible. When importing photos from my camera roll I should be able to chose to automatically delete those photos. Instead I have to select photos to import to DB, wait for them to upload and then go into my camera roll and hope I remember which photos and select them again to delete. Other apps such as photo vault have figured this out, why wouldn’t a premium service such as Dropbox have this feature?
  • Doesn’t work

    By adamascorazon
    Nothing on my Dropbox works, it never plays and I constantly have to redownload the songs for them to be work. It’s a great concept but if nothing works what’s the point.
  • Confused

    By Audryanne Wright
    I cannot use my Dropbox account anymore because it says its ‘Dropbox business’ even though I never signed up for whatever that is and gives me 0 options to change it. I don’t even have the free 2GB. Help? :/
  • Why email to upload one photo?

    By LTT10
    I often need to upload only one or two photos to Dropbox from my iPad photos. It was much easier to do it one at a time from the camera roll rather than go to Dropbox and upload from there. Now there is a confusing menu box that insists I want to “share” that photo via email. So I have to email it to myself and then go and delete that email. Silly and time consuming. Why??? I’m using the paid version of Dropbox and for the price there are so many useful functions missing. I’ve put off migrating to another service because of the hassle and maybe that’s what Dropbox is counting on. Grrrrrrr.
  • Offline Files Function is Broken

    By Bonita Laguna
    Offline files function regularly fails. Loses synched offline files, cannot even show an index of the files if offline. This has been a problem for years.

  • Lacks so many features

    By SxySam3
    Been a user of dropbox for so long...i can confidently say google drive beats it in every aspect. Many of the services that dropbox requires a subscription for... google drive has them for free. Its also far more accessible as google drive is connected to way more services. One of the most annoying things about dropbox is that you cannot print from the app. For software that touts itself as being “for the workplace” this is incredibly unintuitable. All in all, just make more google accounts for drive. You’re wasting your time with this app.
  • New policy makes it useless

    By olive70
    Dropbox recently limited the number of device allowed on the free accounts to 3. 👎🏻 I’m using the service since 2008 and promoted it to many friends and colleagues. Now as a thank you Dropbox reduces to 3 the amount of computers we can connect which makes it useless for most of us. I’ll simply use the 1TB storage which comes free with my office 365 subscription. GoodBye Dropbox.
