Hey there @NEWTODOLHPINS11,
 
When you download and install the desktop app it will create a Dropbox folder for you. If you are having trouble locating this folder then you can click the Dropbox icon in your system tray/menu bar and then click the small folder icon along the top of the pop up window. This will open up the Dropbox folder on your computer.
 
The Dropbox folder is just like any other folder on your computer so to move your files there you can drag and drop the files into the folder. Alternatively, you can cut/copy and paste the files into the folder also.
 
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions - Thanks!
