Add Dropbox as an open/save location

Problem: It’s click-and-drag easy to add “Favorites” to the Office 2010 Open and Save As dialogs. Dropbox and many other online storage services add an entry as a byproduct of installing the package. But when you click the Add a Place icon in the Open or Save As dialog in Office 2013, the only “places” you’re allowed to add are SharePoint locations and additional SkyDrive accounts. Meh.

Solution: Dropbox has a script that you can run which will add a Dropbox location to the list of cloud locations. Although you have to figure out the path to your Dropbox folder (typically c:\Users\\Documents\Dropbox), running the script is easy.
