For a shortcut to your Dropbox folder, click the Dropbox icon in your menu bar and select the folder icon in the upper right-hand corner.
- Note: If you have work and personal Dropbox accounts paired on your computer, select the briefcase to access your work account and the house icon to access your personal account.
Anything you put in this folder will sync to any of the computers, phones, and tablets where you've also installed the Dropbox application. All you need to do is sign in to the app using the same email address and password across all of your devices. Files in your Dropbox folder are also automatically synced online and available anywhere you need them from dropbox.com. Files uploaded directly to dropbox.com will also save directly to your Dropbox folder. Once they're in your Dropbox folder, you can use them just like you would anywhere else on your hard drive, even if you're offline.
Dropbox Business or team users
If you've connected your personal and work Dropbox accounts, Dropbox will create two separate folders in your home folder. Your work folder will be labeled with the name of your team in parentheses, while your personal folder will have the label Personal in parentheses.
For a shortcut to either folder, click the Dropbox icon in your menu bar or system tray. Click the home icon to open your personal Dropbox folder, or click the briefcase icon to open your work Dropbox folder.
