Hi @cerroalegre; welcome to the Dropbox family and thanks for posting your first question on our Community!

 

As per the task at hand, you just need to install Dropbox on the new computer:

 

https://www.dropbox.com/downloading

 

and then enter your username and password when prompted.

 

The Dropbox application will begin downloading the files in your Dropbox folder for you automatically once you log in.

 

In case you have your Dropbox folder somewhere else and you want to move it to the new computer without downloading everything from the website, please refer to the instructions in the relevant Help center article. 

 

Let me know if you have any additional questions Victor!
