How can I create a read-only link to a folder?

How can I create a read-only link to a folder?

The instructions at https://help.dropbox.com/share/create-and-share-link are unclear. When I attempt to create a link to a folder where I have access exclusively, the only option available is to copy link, and it says in the window where the link is given that the folder I am granting access to will have editing access. I did this and can confirm I was able to add the folder to another dropbox and be able to add files to it.

Hey @mauricev, thanks for posting to the Dropbox Community.

 

We appreciate your feedback about this help center article.

 

When you hover over a file on our website, next to the "copy link" button, you should also see a share button (rectangle with an up arrow).

 

That's the button you need to click and then you should be able to create your view-only link, by following the rest of the steps in the article.

 

Let me know how it goes.
