I am facing some problems regarding the sharing of folders located in a SharePoint document library despite reading all the "How To" available online.
Although I've set the sharing permission in the SharePoint Admin center (see Picture 1 attached), I am not able to share folders located at SharePoint the intended way (see Picture 2 attached, new and existing guests getting a code and a link).
Sharing single files located at SharePoint, as well as sharing single files and folders located in the personal OneDrive works the intended way.
I am not aware that I have changed any website-specific settings or permissions, they should all be the default ones.
Thank you in advance

Have you enabled external sharing for that specific SharePoint site? By default external sharing is disabled on a site level, and you can enable it from SharePoint Admin Center.

thank you for your answer. The website settings seem to be correct (see screenshot).
