In the Upper Right, when an asset is selected, you will see the icons for Share, Download, and Delete.

When hovering over an asset, you will see an Ellipsis: This takes you to the options to View, Share, Download, and Delete each item. 

The projects page offers a unique screening option. If you hover over an asset, you can scrub through the thumbnail to see what footage is contained within the file.

Changing Thumbnail Size

In order to change the way that thumbnails are displayed in SHIFT, go to your profile’s preferences to find the Fill Asset Thumbnails option, which is automatically checked. When unchecked, thumbnails whose images are smaller than the specified dimensions with be displayed with a border.
