I don't understand this at all. Why did they take away this VERY important function? You can no longer drag and drop pictures to and from dropbox to a folder on your computer! This is so aggravating that I feel like throwing my computer in the trash. I cannot use skydrive. It won't link to it and it won't let me transfer files to another location on my computer. There is a "pictures" folder but it refuses to let me transfer files from skydrive or dropbox! This is extremely aggravating when trying to backup four years of vacation pictures. It also disables the drag and drop function from ANYTHING else: CDs, USB drives, hard drives. I'm so angry now that I might consider buying a used computer just to transfer the files. Windows 8 is the worst thing I've used in over 10 years! Sorry about my typing but I'm REALLY frustrated and have been trying for two weeks to find out how to do something so simple.

So I just signed up for Dropbox and installed it on my computer, which runs Windows 8. And it worked the way you were expecting. Dragged a file in there, looked at the icon in the tray, saw that my file was uploaded, verified on Dropbox itself. I also did this before with Google Drive.

Anyway.
