All of the files that you put onto your Public Drive will be given a URL that can be searched and shared as any other web address.
To locate the full URL address and get a preview click on and highlight a file within your public folder.
In the icon list at the top, a square with a diagonal arrow will appear second from the left - this is the public preview button, as it will load or stream any compatible data right into your browser. This includes music, movies and PDFs.
URLs on the Permaweb
When you click the public preview button, a new tab in your browser will open with the chosen file now as a web page. The web address for the file will be located in the web address box of your browser. You’ll see a long web address with arweave.net in the center. It may look like jibberish, but it works forever as a permaweb URL.
Once you have this unique URL you can share it with others, embed it on a website or bookmark it in your browser as a record of your public permaweb files.
Note: There is never an additional charge to download, preview or share your file.
Warning: Not all file types can be previewed in the browser. If a file type cannot be previewed, it will automatically download the file to your computer.
