Dropbox Launches App For Windows 10

Dropbox has deepened its partnership with Microsoft with a new app specifically for Windows 10 which uses some of the operating system’s unique features. Here’s what you need to know.

The Dropbox app is built on the Universal Windows Platform which means it integrates smoothly between different types of devices running on Windows 10. This brings consistency to an app that works on smartphones, tablets and desktops.

Here are the new features on the Dropbox app for the Universal Windows Platform:

  • Drag and drop files into the Dropbox app from Windows File Explorer—and even between folders within the app—to easily move or copy them.
  • Use Quick Search to find what you need faster. Just start typing a search term to see your results—no need to use the search icon.
  • Set up interactive notifications to accept shared folder invitations without having to launch the Dropbox app.
  • Enable Windows Hello to use your fingerprint, face, or iris to unlock the Dropbox app, for extra peace of mind.
  • Add comments directly on your files, and bring others into the discussion with @mentions.
  • Quickly access recent files using Jump List. All you have to do is right-click on the Dropbox app icon in your taskbar.

The app will be available in the new few days on the Windows Store.
