     3.    Select the Share icon on the top menu or by right clicking on the folder name and selecting "Share".


     4.    A pop-up window will appear.
     5.    You can opt to rename the Shared Folder in the "Folder Name" field.
     6.    Enter the name or the email address of the person in the "Share With" field.
     7.    Click on "Share".
     8.    This will create a copy of the existing folder with a "Share" icon, and a message to the user(s) will be sent.
