View Only Permissions in SharePoint Online

Copper Contributor

I have a SharePoint site with one document library called "Documents".


The default sharing settings for this SharePoint site are setup as below:


  • Default Sharing link type: Specific People

  • Default link permission: View




When I create a new Sharing link by selecting a file/folder and clicking on Share button from top menu bar, it gets View permissions by default. This is working as I want It.


But when I create a new link using the following option from the Details side panel, it gives edit permission by default.




any suggestions on how I can switch it to View permissions as default.
