Add dropbox to finder on mac

When the app installs, it places an icon in the menu bar.

Click on the icon and then click the gear icon in the lower-right corner of the Dropbox window and click Preferences. This opens up a list of all of your top-level folders in Dropbox.

Check the folders you would like synced between Dropbox and your Mac. A synced folder will hold two copies of each file -- one in the cloud in Dropbox and one on your Mac.

Installing and Using Dropbox on Your Mac

Any folders you uncheck from Selective Sync will be removed from your Mac's drive but remain on Dropbox, keeping your files in the cloud while freeing up some space on your Mac. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic.

How To Use Dropbox On Mac

Keychain is a password management system for Apple's macOS. Dropbox requires access to your Keychain to help verify your account and to provide another layer of security over the Dropbox app settings. It only runs when the desktop app is running. Dropbox Web Helper is an independent process, so it may start and stop at different times than the desktop app.
