How to Download Files from DropBox




I have been browsing websites which use Dropbox to share files, such as the https://depedclub.com/ website. And most often than not, I am seeing questions like this:

 

As easy as it is for some, there are still people who find it hard and find it confusing how some files are being downloaded.  Let us take a look at our options.








Option 1: The Download Button




The Download button may be located at the right hand corner of your computer. When it is clicked, you will have two options: Direct Download, which goes to your computer, or Save to my Dropbox, if you have an existing Dropbox account. 




Option 2: The URL


Let us have a specific example. We will try to download a PDF file (NAT MATH.pdf) which can be accessed through:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1oaokmbhl12qfth/NAT%20MATH.pdf?dl=0

For us to download this PDF, all we have to do is change the "0" at the end of the website address or the URL to 1.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1oaokmbhl12qfth/NAT%20MATH.pdf?dl=1

and press the ENTER key on your keyboard (RETURN when using Mac).
