How to give people view-only access to your Dropbox files on a Windows Computer?

Sometimes you may want to let people view the files in your folder without being able to change them. You can send a link to a file or folder, which allows recipients to view and download a copy of it. Or you can set view-only permissions for some or all members of your shared folder. View-only permissions enable members to always see the latest versions of the files without having the ability to edit them. We have explained the step by step process for each case:

Share a file
  1. If you haven't already, install the Dropbox desktop app on your computer.
  2. Right-click the file or folder and select Share…
  3. Choose Can view.
  4. Enter the name or email address of the people who need access to your files.
  5. Click Invite.

Dave testimonial PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant. - Dave
