Public sharing download button

Public sharing download button

Why is there no download button when I open up a public share link for a folder or file?

Isn't the download action one of the main functionalities when sharing a folder or a file?
In that case it should be more intuitive and easy to access.

 

Currently the download action is located in a drop down menu in the right side bar. It's not really intuitive.

Why not simply add a download button that downloads the current folder or file?

Or something similar that is easy to spot and click.

Hi @mladmax, in the image you're showing, it looks like you're accessing a file that's already on your Dropbox account, and not via a shared link.

Shared links do get the download button when viewed from outside your account. Could you clarify if you see that download button when opening a shared link?
