Dropbox recently announced support for screenshot sharing and iPhoto imports, and now to up the ante even more, you can now copy file links directly to the Windows & Mac clipboards for easy sharing. This will come as great news to fans of Dropbox, as it makes your Dropbox usage just a little easier to use.
Dropbox are determined not to be outwitted by the impertinent upstart, Google Drive, so they are announcing improvements all the time to their service (even though the one improvement they could make that would really excite the hell out of me is changing their pricing system, which is double that of Google Drive).
All you have to do is right-click on the file you want to share and choose the option “share Dropbox link“. The link will then be automatically copied very fast to your clipboard and you’ll even get a notification bubble telling you the link is there waiting for your CTRL+V or Command+V keystroke to paste it wherever – an email, an IM message, or whatever.
“Once upon a time, we came up with a cool new way to share links. But after our team used it for a while (believe it or not, we use Dropbox here pretty frequently), we didn’t think it was quite there. So we made it faster!” — Dropbox
That is pretty much it. Nothing much else to say about it. But it sure is a very handy development which will shave a few seconds – and clicks – off your time when sharing Dropbox files.
What do you think of this new Dropbox feature? Will you be using the service more because of it?
