Re: accessibility with dropbox?

All the files  I send wiwth dropbax,  I do it by using yee old “copy and paste” in the dropbox application on my pc, not on the web.

I know, it sounds too easy,  but copy and paste it is.

…and don’t forget delete when things get tight on these free accounts.

That is my guess.  When I have a shared folder, I see every file in the folder in my Dropbox application when I am in that folder.

Are you saying that I might be able to go to the Dropbox website, find my shared folder in my account, and use ctrl plus c on a file, then ctrl plus v where I want it on a drive on my laptop?

 I would think you could copy them to the clip board and paste them where you want them but I haven't worked with shared folders for so long, I can't be sure that will work.  If it doesn't, I have other suggestions.

No, my friend put some files into our shared folder.  She did not send a link.  I found the files, but don't know how to download them to my laptop the accessible way.


Thanks again,

 Do you mean if you are sharing a folder or if someone sends you a link?

I haven't kept up with the dropbox subjects, so if I'm asking for a repeat, I apologize, and you are welcome to reply privately. So, in Windows 10 or 11, is there still an accessible way to download shared files from dropbox?  If so, how?
