Hmm, interesting. Does it work the same as in SkyDrive? I mean, if you choose to save it on Dropbox, it will open the Dropbox folder in your PC?

Yea it just opens up the Save As dialog box as normal but already in the DropBox Folder

It also displays a list of your recent folders in DropBox only when you select DropBox

This is cool however, isnt it just as easy to just save the file into your dropbox folder and let it upload on its own?

Hell I was wondering why the script was not working @_@.
You need to click "Add a Place" and in there, the dropbox icon will appear.

Thanks a million for the script!!!!!
