    Try it this way....................

    Go back to your DropBox > right click at one of the photos > click Download > at the bottom > click the pointer next to Save > click Save As > navigate to the Pictures folder > click the folder > at the bottom, click Save.

    If you have multiple photos you want to download,press Ctrl key and HOLD > while holding, left click at photos you want to download > when selected, right click at one of the photos > click Download > at the bottom > click the pointer next to Save > click Save As > navigate to the Pictures folder > click the folder > at the bottom, click Save.

    Unfortunately that didn't work. But I did find directions elsewhere that sere pretty simple. Once in Explorer, Select All. Click on Home, click on Copy, click on on Pictures, click on Home, click on Paste. Voila! Thanks tho.
