I recently picked up my first MacBook after working exclusively with Windows since the days of 98. 

 

My question here is in regards to the default library folders (if you call them that) such as the downloads/music/documents/movies/etc. folders. I want to delete or move them so I can add them to my Dropbox folder which was quite easy in Windows but as far as I can tell right now, you are unable to do in OS X. The system won't allow me to delete or move them and while I can readdress where my web browser downloads files by default, I would like to move or delete the original folders. Is there any way to do this?

If the system standard folders are empty you could hide them.

Finder  ☞    Preferences    ☞  Sidebar, then uncheck them.
