Dropbox users can now share a link to any doc, photo, folder or to any of their stored goodies, thanks to a small but nifty update. Dropbox's Dwayne Litzenberger explains that to start off, Dropbox users will have to first right-click on to the content they want to share, and select “Share Dropbox Link“. Soon after, a tiny bubble will appear telling the user that the shared link is in their clipboard. Alternatively, users can press Control-v or Command-v to paste their link to get going.
Here's how you do it!
Before this, in March this year, Dropbox released an update for its desktop client that claimed to make the user experience faster and better. In addition to that, the desktop client got cleaner too. Back then. the most important addition to the Dropbox for desktop update was the availability of more immediate notifications through a drop down menu. You can now right away view files you have been invited to share, saving you the need to head to the Finder/File Explorer to accept invitations.
The new look is definitely a huge improvement over the previous one, with a clean interface and larger buttons. The update even brings about thumbnails of files that you have shared or just uploaded, making it easy for you to spot and revise them. Unfortunately, figuring how much space you still have left and seeing the “pause sync” option is a bit of a task that requires a couple of more clicks.
