Client 2.4 now 5 ! clicks to link

Expected behaviour

The client 2.4.4 needs 5 (!!) clicks now to share a simple link.
The client 2.3.4 needs 3 clicks.

Watch the comparison: video

I was going back to 2.3.4.
Why is it going to be more complicated with every new version?
I hope I can use the client 2.3 for a very long time…

I’ve tested 2.5.0 beta. But it has too many bugs. It’s not useable in everyday production.
The menue needs 5 clicks in this version, too.
A “Copy public link to clipboard” option in context menue was nowhere to be seen.
