Dropbox, the popular cloud storage service has recently introduced a new feature that will allow users to share links directly from desktop.
Previously, when you wanted to share a file, you were first directed to your browser, had to be logged in and then you can get the sharing link. Well, there’s no need to do this anymore as the process has been simplified.
Now, when you right-click on any file or folder stored in your Dropbox folder, you can see the option for “Share Dropbox Link.” All you need to do is to click on it and then the sharing URL will be automatically copied to your clipboard. You can now paste this URL anywhere to share with others. To paste, simply press Ctrl + V (or Command + V for those on Mac), but you already knew this, right!
Just to clear the doubt, you can send the link to anyone, even if that person is not using Dropbox.
For sure, this new update from Dropbox is a minor one, but still very useful if you want to quickly share files or folders with anyone – be it your friends, family, co-workers or any other person.
