Automatically updating macintosh applications
On mac OS and Windows, you can simply hover your mouse pointer over the Dropbox icon in the system tray or menu bar.
When a new major version of OS X is released, you can download the upgrade for free from the App Store.These updates are rolled out gradually after a new update is available, and are necessary to keep the desktop app functioning. These updates ensure you’re running the most up-to-date version of Dropbox, which often has performance and security enhancements.And if Dropbox can't keep itself up-to-date, some features may stop working. If you want to manually update to the latest stable version of the Dropbox desktop app, you can get it from our download page or our install page (for Linux users).There are two ways to see which version of the Dropbox desktop app you’re currently running on your computer.
