Dropbox Dash searches what's stored locally on your computer and across all your favourite cloud apps and services. Finally, you no longer have to remember where to go, you can instead simply focus on what you need to do.

It's as easy as 1-2-3

  1. Launch the desktop app with Command + E on Mac or Control + E on Windows

  2. Start typing the title of a Record you are looking for

  3. Open a Record with Enter/Return πŸš€

Use Tab to filter results by Service

πŸ’‘You can pin up to 5 of your favourite Services and order them however you like

Use Hotwords to restrict searches by Service

πŸ’‘ See here for a complete list of Hotwords

Customize keyboard shortcuts

Make Dropbox Dash your own by mapping genera; and result-level actions to shortcuts that work best for you under Settings > Keyboard Shortcuts.
