Hi there,

I would like to get a simple look for all my photos. How do I do this? 

Here is a link I want my files and folders to look like, but I am not sure how to do it:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4ssh118oj28q2fw/AAByQGsWa7KdhznXsjSAQV3_a?dl=0

So, I want the users that click on my dropbox link on our website and that the page looks like this, very simple.

Thank you for all tips!

Regards, Christina

Oh, I see now; thanks for the quick response and clarifications Christina!

You don't need to do anything in this case. What you see in your second screenshot is your account's view (looks like you're logged into the account that has generated the shared link in question) - the first one is what any other user accessing the shared link will get.

You can verify this by accessing the link from an incognito window where you're not currently logged into your Dropbox account. 

I hope this clears things up a tad while I'm always a post away if you have any more questions!

Hello @AdminChristina - welcome to the Dropbox Community!

I'm not really sure what's not working for you; could you elaborate a tad on what you'd like to accomplish and/or what's troubling you?

Thanks in advance!

Walter, one more question. I am trying to change the blue folder icon in dropbox to an image icon. And it works on the desktop app, but not in web version...do you know why? How do I change it in chrome?

I'm glad we sorted this out Christina and thanks for keeping me in the loop too!

I'm afraid you won't be able to see custom folder icons on our website at this time; you can feel free to suggest your idea in the relevant section of our Community though:

Let me know if there's anything else I can help with; I'll be happy to follow up!
