Re: API -- Open File in Finder / Windows Explorer

API -- Open File in Finder / Windows Explorer

Hi,

 

There was a request in 2015 for the API to replicate the feature on dropbox.com that lets a user click an "open" button to open the file on their local computer instead of in the web browser.

 

Any progress on this ?

No, unfortunately there isn't an update on that.

I'm looking to do this same thing.
Anyone know if it's been addressed since 2018?

@cplewisbpe No, unfortunately this hasn't been added to the API.

Need more support?
