I happened to find that the 'anyone with the link' option in Share action is grey out.
I checked the sharing settings and all looks fine. Did I miss something?
Please refer below pictures.

Works fine here. Don't forget that the sharing settings can be configured on the individual SC level, so even if the org-wide settings allow anonymous sharing overall, some SC/ODFB libraries might not have the option available.
In my case, I can share just fine from my personal ODFB or from a generic SPO site. I get the same behavior as you when I try to share from a Comm site or Group/Team one. When I look at the settings of the corresponding SC though, I see this:
SharingCapability : ExistingExternalUserSharingOnly
So it seems working as expected.

Not checked all, but maybe. After all, my tenant has been used for years. I have worked at AvePoint and tested a lot on my tenant, such as DocAve Online Central Admin. So perhaps I changed the settings then.
Anyway, I already know why this happens. :)

Hi Justin can you share how to check the ODFB site's properties @Justin Liu ? I got the similar case here and don't know what to do.

I am likewise trying to remedy the problem of being greyed out. My business absolutely needs to share out of company, and 365 support has directed me to the Powershell remedy, but they can't seem to get the command right. What is the proper "Set-SPOSite -Identity" command? They feel I need to identify a server site, but can't figure out what that site should be. How did you make it work?

Glad that this thread can make futher efforts to you. I am trying to get what I did.
First, you need to install the sharepoint online management shell.
Open it and connect to your tenant with below command for example.
Connect-SPOService -Url https://domain-admin.sharepoint.com -credential email@example.com
After this, you can get the properties of some site you want.
Below is the reference for you guys, please find the -SharingCapability related contents.

Came here with the same question. It seems like MS has changed the default setting for this and now I cannot share individual files or folders anymore with ppl outside my org/team
I've followed the steps on the link below and it worked.
In a nutshell, you can control site level permissions by the steps below:

@gregbutler_20 This means you have limited access lockdown enabled on the affected site collection. Navigate to the site settings, under the site collection administration, select Site collection features, and confirm if limited access lockdown is enabled, if enabled, disable it.
