In an era of information, we are closely intertwined with digital devices and inevitably need to do with our files.

Nowadays, cloud services become more and more popular. If you have saved the files that you want to share in cloud storage, you can share them effortlessly and effectively. For example, if you have a Google Drive account, you can log in your account, select the file that you want to share and click on “Share” button, then a link will be presented. After sending the link to them, those who open the link can view the file.
