I’d like to suggest a slight change or addition to the “Copy link for anyone” context menu. Currently the link created will attempt to open the file within the Gdrive environment. This is not much use (personally) for me or my clients as most do not use the Gdrive platform and the files are just too big (typically PPT files of 50-200 mb or more) for Google to handle.
All the client wants is to download the file onto their own systems, not open them in Google.
It is possible to hack the link generated already:
you take the File_ID section of the generated link and paste it into:
But obviously this is clumsy and slow. Much better to have a simple option in the context menu share:
“Copy link for anyone”
“Copy download link (for anyone)”
What do you think?
