Can some help me understand why there's a difference in Link Settings while sharing Document vs Folder (screenshot below) while sharing it. My goal is to share Folder with a "Anyone..." link External sharing setting at various level is

  • Tenant Level ==> Anyone
  • SharePoint Admin level ==> Anyone
  • Site level ==> Anyone

Please the following steps to enable external sharing link:

1. Set the Site sharing settings

  • Sign in the site as an admin
  • Click Site permissions under the Settings menu
  • On the Permissions panel, click the "Change how members can share" link

enter image description here

  • On the Site sharing settings panel, select "Site owners and members can share files, folders, and the site" option

enter image description here

  • Save

2.Set the Site external sharing settings

  • Sign in the SharePoint admin center as SharePoint admin or Global admin
  • Select Sites tab under the left navigation, and select Active sites

  • Select the site that you want to share
  • On the Site information panel, go to Policies tab and select Edit External sharing

=======================Updated Answer==========================

For public sites you only need to set the Site external sharing settings.

  • Sign in the SharePoint admin center as SharePoint admin or Global admin
  • Select Sites tab under the left navigation, and select Active sites
  • Select the site that you want to share

  • On the Site information panel, go to Policies tab and select Edit External sharing

enter image description here

  • On the Sharing panel, select Anyone option under the External sharing section.
