This blog will help you to Step By Step To Get Started With Dropbox. Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. Any file you save to your Dropbox will also automatically save to all your computers, phones, and even the Dropbox website. This means that you can start working on your computer at school or the once, and finish on your home computer. Never email yourself a file again!
The Dropbox Folder
After you install Dropbox on your computer, a Dropbox folder is created. If you’re reading this guide,then that means you had no problems finding your Dropbox folder :). This folder is just like any other folder on your computer, but with a twist. Any file you save to your Dropbox folder is also saved to all your other computers, phones, and the Dropbox website.
On top of your Dropbox is a green icon that lets you know how your Dropbox is doing:
Green circle and check: All the files in your Dropbox are up to date
Blue circle and arrows:Files in your Dropbox are currently being updated.
Adding files to your Dropbox
Step 1: Drag and drop a file into your Dropbox folder.
Step 2: The blue icon means your file’s syncing with Dropbox
That’s it! The green icon means that your file has finished saving to your other computers and the Dropbox website. Now that your file’s in Dropbox, any changes made to it will be automatically detected and updated to your other computers.
The Dropbox Right-click/Context Menu
When you Right-Click (Windows/Linux) or Control-Click (Mac) a file or folder in your Dropbox, you’ll see a menu that lets you do a few neat things with Dropbox:
• Share a FolderInvite your friends, family and teammates to a folder in your Dropbox. It’ll be as if you saved that folder straight to their computers.
• View Previous VersionsView a record of changes made to a file. You can choose to go back to an earlier version of a file if you’d like.
• Browse on Dropbox WebsiteView a file on the Dropbox website.
• Get Link Make a link to any file or folder in your Dropbox. You can then send this link to anyone you’d like to view the file — even if they don’t have Dropbox!
The Dropbox Tray/Menu bar icon
The Dropbox tray or menu bar icon is located on the bottom (Windows) or top (Mac/Linux) of your screen, and lets you check the status and settings of your Dropbox. The same green, blue, and red icons that appear on the files and folders in your Dropbox also appear over this icon to let you know the status of your Dropbox. Right-clicking this icon gives you a few options:
• Open your Dropbox folder, the Dropbox website, or the Dropbox help center.
• See which files were recently changed. • View an estimate of how long it will take Dropbox to finish updating files. • Change preferences for your connection, Dropbox folder location, and more
