You can save any URL file (.webbloc, .url, or .website) in your Dropbox. Saving URL files to your Dropbox lets you:
- Organize bookmarks in your Dropbox. Instead of using browser bookmarks, which only appear on a specific browser and device, you can save frequently visited websites as URL files in your Dropbox. That way you can access your bookmarks from anywhere you're signed in to Dropbox.
- Save websites to visit later. Come across an article that you'd like to read or a recipe that you'd like to try? Save the website as a URL file and it will be in your Dropbox when you're ready.
How do I add a URL to my Dropbox?
To add a URL to your Dropbox, drag and drop the URL into a browser window where you’re already signed in to your Dropbox account. Currently, you can only save URL files from dropbox.com.
How do I open a URL that's saved in my Dropbox account?
After you add a URL to your Dropbox account, you can open it from dropbox.com or the Dropbox folder on your computer (after the URL file syncs).
Clicking a URL from dropbox.com opens a preview of the website. To open the website, click Open in new tab. Clicking a URL from the Dropbox desktop application launches the website in your default browser.
Can I change the name of a URL file?
When you first save a URL file to your Dropbox account, the file is named based on the URL domain (e.g. dropbox.com, facebook.com, etc.). Like any other file in your Dropbox, you can rename URL files later.
