You can prevent sharing an item, see who it’s shared with, or modify the permissions others have to it, if you’re the owner of the item.
Note: You can’t change the permission of a sharing link from edit to view or from view to edit. The way around it is to delete your sharing link and create a new one with a different permission.
What you see varies depending whether you’re signed in with a personal account or a work or school account.

All you need to do is right-click the shared file or folder in your OneDrive folder on your computer, and select Share, then select More > Manage access, and a dialogue box will open on your desktop so you can make your selections as described above in step 3.
