Dropbox update lets you share anything with direct links

Dropbox has updated the desktop version of its app, introducing the option to get direct links to any of your files.

Previously, you could only give public link to files put from your Public folder, but now the Dropbox boffins have put an end to this, making the cloud sharing service a whole lot easier to use.

Now you can share a direct link to any videos, photo galleries and documents found in your Dropbox folder by clicking the “Get Link” item on your right click menu. When it gets opened, the link only shares a read-only copy of the file you want and won’t give editing/deleting permissions to anyone.

So, what are you waiting for? The feature should be now active, so go give it a whirl.
