How do I download a file from dropbox to my computer?

Explorer | Level 4

I need to have a copy of a file in dropbox on my computer. What is the problem of sending a file from dropbox to my own email, and downloading it from there as I would any other file? This is a pdf file and I need to have a copy of it on my computer while still leaving a copy in dropbox.

Hi @Suzanne C.6,

Did You try the Dropbox application? It do exactly you are looking for in addition to (as part of, in fact) the syncing.

Other way is, of course, direct download from the site, if You don't like the application.

Good luck.
