I can't open a dropbox link I was emailed.

I can't open a dropbox link I was emailed.

Hi there,

A new client has sent me a link 

Here's a link to our product dropbox photos: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9t5bks4bg8jerxd/AABOyQANSfoxKgAQn0EBwao6a?dl=0

And I can not, for the life of me, open it. 
It's probably something super easy as I'm a newbie to Dropbox.
I'd really appreciate any help with this.

Cheers.

Can you try copy-paste the link to the browser address field? I think your link is not correctly formatted. This link works for me: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9t5bks4bg8jerxd/AABOyQANSfoxKgAQn0EBwao6a?dl=0

Hi @Alison Fleming,

🙂 Be careful, when you copy/paste a link, not to add browser confusing white spaces (of any kind)! You have prepended a space to your link. 😉 It is NOT before the link, as you may be think, but part of the link!

Hope this clarifies matter and will prevent future confusion.

Also. I was wondering how you did that just in case it happens again?
