    You can stop sharing an item, or change the permissions others have to it, if you are the owner of the item or have edit permissions.

    4. Click/tap on Allow edit, Change to view only, or Stop Sharing for the permission level you want. (see screenshots below)
    Note   Note
    Change to view only (view only) - When you share items with this type of link, people can view, copy or download your items without signing in. They can also forward the link to other people.

    Allow edit (view and edit) - When you share items with this type of link, people can edit files, and can add or delete files in a shared folder. Recipients can forward the link, change the list of people sharing the files or folder, and change permissions for recipients. If you're sharing a folder, people with Edit permissions can copy, move, edit, rename, share, and delete anything in the folder.

    Stop sharing - This will remove the file and folder from the person's shared list, and they will no longer have access to it.
