How to share folders in DropBox

DropBox is a great utility for people to share folders across different computers – but what happens if you want to share files with someone on a different account?


Thankfully, the process is fairly easy. First, you need to open a new folder in the DropBox folder, and then put whatever files you need in there.


Then, right-click on the folder, browse down to “DropBox”, and then highlight the option that says “Share this folder”.


This will take you to the DropBox website. There, you need to type in the emails of all the people you want to send the folder invitation to – you can put several or just one. Then, type in a personal message if you want, and those people will receive an invitation to access that folder.


You can do the same thing from your account on the DropBox website – highlight the folder you want, move down to “Share this folder” and then click it.
