Hey @antoniovandre, let's jump right into this! 

 

If I understand your need, it sounds like you shared a link a while back, and now you need to know if it's a "can view" one, or a "can edit" one, right? 

 

Provided this isn't the case, don't hesitate to let me know. You can always try to access said link using an incognito tab on your browser.

 

That way you wouldn't be signed into your account, and you'd be able to see what other people also see on their end. Keep in mind that you can manage your default sharing settings by going to https://www.dropbox.com/account/sharing on Dropbox.com in your web browser. 

 

There you can check and make your default access for link sharing "view" instead of "edit, and vice versa.

 

I hope this helps!
