From web to desktop: Introducing a new way to open Dropbox files
Published on February 05, 2015
There are a few ways this will make your life easier:
- Stay on the same page. If a file is already on your computer, you won't have to download another copy or create multiple versions; any edits you make will automatically sync back to the original file.
- Send shortcuts. Use a shared link to point your friends or colleagues right to a specific file within a shared folder.
- Save clicks. Move from previewing a file on the web to editing it on your desktop in seconds.

This new way to open files requires the latest version of the Dropbox desktop app — the update will automatically roll out to users over the next few weeks.
