Hi Ray, are you referring to a shared link to that file?
 
If so, you can’t customize it to a URL you’d prefer, however you can delete and recreate the link which will generate a new link.
 
If I’m misunderstanding something, please let me know!

I guess you could, but it would take time, and since the URL is random there’s no guarantee that you’ll get one you’re satisfied with!

It won't be shorter, unless you shorten the name of your file. The Dropbox-generated portion of a share link will always be the same length.

You can, however, run the link that Dropbox gives you through a link shortening service, such as bit.ly or goo.gl.
