1) Find the Dropbox folder on your computer, typically in your \User subfolder. Right-click on it and select Copy.
2) Find your Send To folder. This is a bit harder, as Windows 7 has a number with the same name. It typically is within the AppData\Roaming\Windows subfolder within your user account. Click or double-click to open.
3. Now paste a shortcut of your local Dropbox folder into there. (This is the one you created in step 1.)
Now, whenever you want something spread or saved, just right-click it, look for Send To, and then choose the Dropbox folder!
You don't even have to be online at the time, as it will sync when you are online.

That's a nifty addition, but really, unless you were on someone else's computer, why would you do that?
I use a folder on my desktop as my dropbox main folder and all my dragging and dropping takes place in explorer.
I almost forget it's a cloud storage folder because for all intents and purposes, it acts exactly like any other folder. Drag folders, photos, subfolders, whatever.
