  5. Once you find the correct folder, left click on The Folder that your file is located in
  6. Right-click The Folder/File you want to share
  7. Left-click Share and then Left-click Create public link

  8. Left click Additional parameters in the box that appeared from step 7
  9. Type your desired password in the Password: field as well as the Repeat password: field.
