Re: email a shared linked file from dropbox.com

Hey @gloriaearly - thanks for posting your query here and welcome aboard!

 

All you need to do is create a link to the file in question using the "share" button right next to the file's name when on the web.

Bear in mind that you can create a sharable link to any file or folder in your Dropbox folder and anybody with the link can view the contents, but won't be able to edit them.

 

I hope this helps Gloria!
