Dropbox the cloud storage specialists have rolled out a small but excellent updated this week that now allows users to link to files directly from your operating system’s desktop. A feature that Dropbox users have been requesting for some time.
The small new addition to Dropbox now allows you to simply right click on any files you might have on your computer and then select an option to share a link to the file within Dropbox.
Dropbox explains in their blog post earlier today : “Once upon a time, we came up with a cool new way to share links. But after our team used it for a while (believe it or not, we use Dropbox here pretty frequently), we didn’t think it was quite there.
So we made it faster! Now when you want to share a link to any doc, photo, folder, or any of your stuff in Dropbox, just right-click it, and select “Share Dropbox Link”. A second later you’ll get a bubble telling you the link is in your clipboard. Just Control-v or Command-v to paste your link wherever you want, and you’re good to go.”
