Quick Tip : Android 4.4+ users can easily select their default file managers

 
Google packages its own, traditional file manager application into every build of the Android operating system that it distributes. Although it’s adequate, many manufacturers tend to remove and replace it with their own version. Unfortunately, though, they always seem to be extremely overwhelming and much too difficult to use. However, you can change your default file manager and it’s actually super easy to do.
Swapping your default file manager is simple, but you must ensure you have more than one manager already installed on your device otherwise you’ll not see the option to select one as your default. Here’s what you have to do:
  • Open up Settings.
  • Select Apps.
  • Tap on the file manager you wish to make your default.
  • Check the box that says Make default.
  • Press Save.
Voilà! You have successfully changed your file manager. If you run into any issues along the way, do be sure to let us know in the comments section below, and we’ll do our very best to get you back on track.
