I don't know why the option isn't available in your application.  It should be.  I just went online with my Windows 7 machine, opened the application, found a folder, and checked.
 
In the context menu, are two items, share and share with.

Gene,


There are no other Dropbox-related choices on the context menu for a Dropbox folder than "Copy Dropbox link" and "View on dropbox.com." If one wants to share a Dropbox folder with another person, a visit to the Dropbox Website and a login to one's account is an absolute requirement, which of course can be accomplished by activating the aforementioned view-on link..

Log in to your Dropbox account, find the directory or file you want to share, and activate the "Share" link. Of course, if you want to share a file that's inside a directory, you have to open that directory first, locate the file, then activate "Share." . Next, enter the email address of the person with whom you want to share the file or directory, type an optional message, and activate the "Share" button.

I just did it with Windows 10.

There was no share with, but when you press enter on the share option it asks you who you want to share with, you put in the email address tab to the share button and press enter.

I don't see why the version of Windows would matter.  I've seen occasions where someone would report a problem to a list I follow where they didn't see all the items that should be in the Drop Box context menu such as share but I don't recall anyone ever providing an answer or a solution.

Re: does jaws have a built in OCR?

Yes.  It is accessed by going into, now I don't remember what it's called but it used to be known as the home-row utilities, JAWS Key plus Spacebar, then O, then either W for Window, S for Screen, or C for Control. Here's the help text from H with more info:


The following commands are available in the OCR layer.
Acquire and OCR a print document from a Scanner or Freedom Scientific Camera such as PEARL, using the letter A.
OCR a scanned PDF Document opened in Acrobat Reader using the letter D.
From Windows Explorer, you can OCR any Image File using the letter F.
From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

You can press Q to quit or cancel an OCR job.

Well, now I find that dropbox won't run under win xp.  Is there a way I can trick it into running?

I tried it, and because the dialog's acessibility needs serious work, could not do anything with it, so back to the Website I went and got it done on the first try.

It never used to work that way. This is new and welcome behavior. The dialog's accessibility needs a bitta work, but otherwise, yes, it does work as advertised.

I just did it with Windows 10.

There was no share with, but when you press enter on the share option it asks you who you want to share with, you put in the email address tab to the share button and press enter.

I don't know why the option isn't available in your application.  It should be.  I just went online with my Windows 7 machine, opened the application, found a folder, and checked.

In the context menu, are two items, share and share with.

Gene,

There are no other Dropbox-related choices on the context menu for a Dropbox folder than "Copy Dropbox link" and "View on dropbox.com." If one wants to share a Dropbox folder with another person, a visit to the Dropbox Website and a login to one's account is an absolute requirement, which of course can be accomplished by activating the aforementioned view-on link..

You don't have to use your account, as I recall.  I looked at this quite some time ago.  Open the Drop Box files and folders list on your computer.  Find the folder you want to work with.  Open the context menu and look around.  Whenever you want to do things don't just look in the standard menus and at times there may be none.  Look in the context menu.  Things are more likely to be there of this nature.

Log in to your Dropbox account, find the directory or file you want to share, and activate the "Share" link. Of course, if you want to share a file that's inside a directory, you have to open that directory first, locate the file, then activate "Share." . Next, enter the email address of the person with whom you want to share the file or directory, type an optional message, and activate the "Share" button.

Hello listers

Can someone please explain the steps for creating a dropbox folder which I can use to share its contents with a specific person? I looked through the menus but I can not find an option to create such a folder.
