I'm hoping someone can dumb it down and walk me through this:


I'm trying to transfer the entire contents of my Dropbox to Google Drive.

I've searched and have gotten this far:


I have gone into Google Drive and created a folder called DROPBOX. That was the easy part. 

This is where I find the procedure to be vague:


"Go to the local Dropbox folder on your desktop, select the files you want to move and pick 'Copy'"


1) How exactly do I get to the "local Dropbox folder" on my desktop? 

2) What do I do if I want to transfer the entire contents of Dropbox to Google Drive, with an eye toward dumping Dropbox?

Is there a place where I can right click and copy everything at once and then paste it to the Dropbox folder in Google Drive? 

3) Is there a way to make Google Drive appear in the left column when I click on Computer, as Dropbox does? If so, could I simply drag the name "Dropbox" to the name "Google Drive" and transfer that way?
