No share link ?

No share link ?

I have file on Dropbox ... and (on my PC)

my normal use if right click on file (can't rember if it also worked for folder)

Then I would select to 'get link' and then could send that to those I want to share file with.

I now find 'get link' option is no longer there.

The 'share' option, just tries to open Outlook (whichI dont use) or asks for contacts.

 

How do I get link to share ?

 

Pick of what I see on 'right-click'

If that file is in your Dropbox folder, your Dropbox application is likely not running. You have none of the Dropbox options visible on your context menu and there are no sync icons visible on your files. Make sure Dropbox is running and visible in your system tray. If it is running and you still don't have the options or sync icons, you'll likely need to reinstall it.

I double click on the short cut and it opens and I can navigate to folder I want (as per view)

if not connected, why does it open to show files?

I’ll reinstall, see if that fixes things.
