Hi @wmbass123,

When you create a shared link (pointing to some file or folder, including "pdf" file), by default it's preview link and ends with "?dl=0". You can transform such a link to downloadable link by replace link ending, mentioned before, to "?dl=1". If you want direct access to the pointed file content, set the link's ending to "?raw=1". That's it.

Hope this helps.
