Creating shortcuts within a Dropbox folder

Level 2

How can I create a folder within a folder? I am sharing a dropbox folder with friends so we can share our photos and want to have some form of organization.

Hey there (@cojwhit), assuming that you’re currently using our website, kindly note that you could easily go about creating a new folder inside the share by navigating on the right-hand side of your browsing window. From there, you can move the files you’d need to place inside the newly-created folder through the Move option (tip: it’s on the on the 💬).

Please bear in mind that the new folder will inherit the sharing rights from the parent folder however you can check out a few workarounds on this matter on this resource here
 
Whenever you get a chance to check my pointers, please let me know how you get on with my advice on our discussion here!

Hi Jane,

This is exactly what I needed.  I was unclear if the icons on the right would help increating subfolders or just new stand alone folders.

Thanks!
