    Hi all

    It is possible for me to let my friend view my ppt thru drop box ?

    I cannot find the file link copy icon.

    Pls advise.

    yes, but you should ask for their e-mail address. and then in the dropbox website create a folder for sharing wherein you put the files that you want to share. then on the "sharing" tab you can choose the file you want to share and type it the e-mail address of the person to whom you like to share it with. i hope that's clear.

    Simply copy your file to the "public" folder and you'll have a clickable link to share.

    you can do it with dropbox too, just add them to your favourites. that way , you can view the particular file even without an internet.

    Paul,

    in your dropbox app. open the particular folder you like. select the file that you want then hit the star on the upper right. that star will add that file to your favorites.

    To view the files that are in your favorites hit the "double star" icon on the upper right.

    try it!

    Hey Paul,

    Opening a file from dropbox via Docs2Go is way easier. Open your docs2go app , click "online files", then click the "+" icon on the upper left. you will then see options. from google docs, box.net, dropbox and etc. just choose which one you like. enter your username and password. every time, you need to download a file. just click those. ;)

    Hi joy , I am using free ver of docs2go, so on the top left Conner is different , so I can not follow your step. And I notice that I can access google on top right hand Conner for doc.

    Now my aim is how to acess drop box favorite folder off line ?

    Hope you can share with me.

    if you want to access your favorite folder just click the 2 overlapping star on the upper left. it's the icon beside the "wheel icon".
