When emailed the file link rather than opening in the dropbox folder online, it directly opens the file into powerpoint online.  This cant be downloaded.  Can anyone advise how I can just open the link or save it into my dropbox for download.

 

Thanks

Hey @JoMunr0, I hope you're having a great day! 

Can I ask which platform you use to open the file? 

I'd love to see a screenshot of what you see when you try to preview it (just make sure none of your personal info is shown there). 

Have you tried a different browser or incognito mode, to see if the results there remain the same? 

Let me know how it goes.
