This means that if you ever switch computers, and need to load all your files onto the new workstation, you don't have to worry about a thing.

Just log into Dropbox, find the file, and download it to wherever you happen to be — no payment or easy-to-lose USB sticks required.

Here's how to download files from Dropbox using any internet browser on a Mac or PC.

How to download files from Dropbox

1. Open Dropbox in your browser and sign into your account, if you're not already logged in.

2. Click "Files" in the navigation pane on the left side of the window.

3. Find the file you want to download. It might be located inside a folder or subfolder.

4. Hover your mouse pointer over the file you want to download, and then click the three dots on the right. Choose "Download" from the drop-down menu.

5. The file should download to your computer's usual downloads folder, or you might have the chance to pick where it saves to. In most cases, you should then be able to see and open the file directly from the browser window.
