Im not getting a sharable link

Hi There,

When I move files from word or off my iMac to dropbox folder, I use the right click then drop down menu to create a sharable link but there is no option on my iMac to get the link?

 

Im  not sure what happened that the links option is not there any more?

 

I took a screenshot below:

 

I dont know what changed so that I cant share links any more to documents?

Are you sure your Dropbox (the application) is running at that moment and not stopped somehow?! 🤔 Try run it anew. Does something change? 😉

Thank you for your response.

How do I do the run anew?

I cant see a button for that?

 

 

What steps do I take?

Hi @ChristineStow,

In the same way you are running any other application - your applications folder. 🙂

If you mean, not directly on your desktop, not every one application can find a place there. That's why take a look on your Applications, where everyone installed application should exists. 😉

If you can't still find Dropbox there... 🤔 Are you sure your Dropbox application is installed still and not uninstalled accidentally?

Hope this gives direction.

Thank you.

Dropbox is in the App folder.

 

I hear what you are saying.

I dont know what else to do?

Dropbox isnt running as @Здравко says (there is no icon showing at the top status bar - the bit near the clock). You need to double click on 'Dropbox' within the app folder to start it.
