- 2This will take us to the main Dropbox area. In our previous tutorials, we have shown how to create and delete a folder. In this case, we're going to be using a folder that we previously created, called "Active". There are several ways to initiate the process of sharing the folder.Enter "www.dropbox.com/home" in the address bar and press the Enter key.Advertisement
- 9Select "can edit" or "can view". The "can view" option means the person can see the contents of the folder, but cannot delete or change things from it. The "can edit" option means they can make changes. We will select "can edit", since we are sharing this with ourselves, and we might like to delete things we've added or move things that others have added.To change the permissions, press the blue arrow on the far right side of the email address field.
