I try to give the right to download photos in an album that I share and I can not find the way to do it.

Once you have enabled an album to share, go to the LRCC Web view in your browser, select the album and click on the "gear" icon to the right of the album name. That brings up the Album Settings dialog, select the "Share" tab and you'll see the share options that you can enable, one of the options will be to allow downloads.

That doesn't work. There is no gear in the browser. I think it has to be done inside Lightroom itself, but I can't figure out how.

Provided you are correctly logged into your Adobe ID in the browser, and thus seeing all your albums, the gear icon should appear to the right of the album name when you click on the name to select it. If you are simply viewing the album in your browser as a guest, i.e. using the shared link to open the album in the browser, you cannot see/adjust the share settings.

If you are still having trouble, in Lightroom CC on your desktop simply right-click on the shared album and select "Share Settings" from the context menu.
