Re: How do I share a link to a file?

Hey there @gloriaearly, thanks for posting your question on the Forum and welcome aboard. ⛵I’ve gone ahead and moved your post as the original is more than a year old. 
Do keep in mind that you can share a link to a file/folder as long as it’s your Dropbox account. Then, you’ll be able to share the link to your file/folder from, your Dropbox desktop application, or your Dropbox mobile app. The other user doesn’t need to have a Dropbox account to view the file/folder attached to the shared link, and so you can then send the shared link even by email
I hope this helps. Feel free to get back to me here if you have any additional questions. In the mean time, have a great weekend ahead! upside-down face
