Hello there @9793144, Which device/operating system are you using? If you are on a desktop/laptop computer, you should see a Dropbox icon on the menubar or taskbar tray area. When you install the Desktop app, it creates a local folder in your hard drive. You can also find Dropbox pinned in the left of Winodws explorer or Mac Finder. Anything you put inside the Dropbox folder is automatically synced to the Dropbox web and other devices.
