Re: How do I copy and paste a file from Dropbox onto my desktop?

If Dropbox is installed on your computer open the Dropbox folder (as its a folder like any other) and copy and paste it like any other file.

If its not installed and you are using the website you cannot copy and paste, you'll need to select the file and tap download. Then save that file to your desktop

No it did not help.  How do I copy a pdf file within drop box and past to desktop or another folder on my desktop?

Hey @wpachol, if you’re working on your desktop, then you should be able to copy & paste/ cut & paste/ drag & drop your content in the same manner as you’d do with any other file you’ve stored locally!
