Allow access to a Shared a folder without an account

Allow access to a Shared a folder without an account

I followed the instructions here https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/share  and it still resolves to a login page and requires a log in.  What's the secret? 

 

Supposedly what I want to do is possible.  https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/share/share-outside-dropbox

In such a case, seems your admin does limit your ability to share. 🤷 Check it, @username123456!

@username123456, On the 2 screenshots you provided are 2 completely different types of settings! One is related to file/folder share another to link share (pointing to both file or folder). In the tab "Link for viewing" is there entry "Anyone with link" for option "Who has access"? 🤔

Nope, that is 100% of the sharing settings, thus my struggle.  It's a business account.

Thank you for all the ideas.  The folder I set up to share was unknowingly set up as a Team folder and not a regular folder.  Cannot share team folders.
