How to Use Android 6.0’s Built-in File Manager
As the use of smartphones continues to increase, so does the amount of data stored on them. With Android 6.0’s built-in file manager, managing all your files has become easier than ever. Here’s a guide on how to use it.
Accessing the File Manager
To access the file manager on your Android 6.0 device, simply open the “File Manager” app from the app drawer. In case you can’t find the app, you can download a third-party file manager from the Google Play Store.
Once you open the app, you will see a list of folders in your device’s internal storage. You can click on the folder names to navigate your way to your specific files. The app also allows you to use two-finger pinch zoom to increase or decrease the font size of folder names and file types.
To copy a file to another location, long-press it until a menu appears. Select “Copy” from the list of options and navigate to the location you want to copy the file to. Long-press on an empty space and select “Paste” to complete the process.
Deleting files is as easy as copying them. Long-press the file you want to delete, select “Delete” from the menu and confirm the action. Be careful though, because once you delete a file, it cannot be retrieved.
If you want to create a new folder to manage your files, navigate to the location you want the new folder to be in and tap the “Create Folder” button at the bottom of the screen. You will be prompted to choose a name and press “Create” to finish.
Searching for Files
In case you have several files stored on your device, finding them can be a daunting task. However, with the file manager’s search bar, it’s easy to find files. Tap the search icon and enter the file name or keyword you’re looking for.
Android 6.0’s built-in file manager is an excellent tool for managing your files on the go. With its user-friendly interface, navigating files and performing tasks such as copying, deleting and creating folders, becomes easy. Start using it today and take control of your data.
