Windows

Even quicker sharing from the desktop

This post will be as quick and simple as the feature, we promise:

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.

Quick sharing on desktop

Happy sharing!

Hey everyone!

Life (in Dropbox) moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. And with all the stuff you’ve got goin’ on, we figured it’d be handy for you to keep track of all your exploits in one place: the Dropbox menu!

The new Dropbox menu
 

We’ve made it easier than ever to accept invitations to shared folders, see links or albums that people have shared with you, and keep tabs on what’s changed in your Dropbox.

If someone shares a link with you, you can now get to it immediately — directly from the Dropbox menu! You’ll get notifications in real time as people share with you, and can see them later just by clicking the Dropbox icon. You can also accept or decline invitations to shared folders directly from your desktop.

We’ve also made it easier to see what’s recently changed in your Dropbox and added a quick way to share your stuff with a link, right from the Dropbox menu.

 

Shared folder invites on mobile

But why should computers have all the fun? Notifications for shared folders will also show up on the latest versions of our iOS and Android apps (and on the web at dropbox.com/events) so you can keep tabs on your stuff from anywhere.

If you’re ready to explore the new features, download the latest version of Dropbox!
