Dropbox files & folders

I am creating links for downloads directly from Windows, just by right-clicking, selecting: Copy Dropbox link.
- A private file, never shared, nor with sharing link generated, if I copy the link via Windows does it automatically generate a public link and that never expires?
- How can I manage in batch if I want to cancel all the public links to hundreds of files in folders?
No they do not automatically expire and I am afraid there is no batch deletion process.

Thanks for the answer @Mark !
Can you confirm if you will always start the link?
https: //www.dropbox.com/s / ........
There is some way the link is based on my username for example:
https: //www.dropbox.com/s/ MARK / ..........
Things of this type, could be useful for example to identify if that URL in the system is from a file that has as owner someone pre-authorized ...
If this is not possible yet, where can I request this feature?
