How do you see all the files people have given access to you in Dropbox?

How do you see all the files people have given access to you in Dropbox? In other words, when people download files in their dropbox file and allow you access, is there a screen to show you all the people that have done this? I DON"T want to see a list of what I am sharing with others but a list (or screen) of what other people are sharing with me. Someone told me they shared a file with me but I received no email notice from Dropbox and I am looking to see if the person really shared the file or is mistaken.

Hey @Newwvs
 
If it’s a shared folder that you haven’t added to your account, it may be in the Folder section in your Sharing tab. If it’s a shared file though, it might be under the File column in your Sharing tab, instead. 
 
Let me know how it goes!

Thank you Lusil - that was helpful and I found the file I was looking for - sorry to be such a newbie at this.
