Installing Apps (apk) and Folder Management Using Filebrowser

Want to install an app from an apk? Or copy a folder from your device to a USB stick? All our devices come installed with a great app called Filebrowser. A quick guide on using it

Filebrowser can be found in the ALL APPS section of your device.

When you open Filebrowser, you will see the window below. The window displays a row of buttons along the top. These are HOME, MULTI-SELECT, EDIT, SORT, RETURN/BACK, VIEW and HELP.

The window also shows you the current folders selected in the pane below the buttons. By default, it opens to show all storage volumes on the device. Currently the local disk (flah memory) and a USB stick we used for this demo.

Using the edit buttons

Filebrowser makes it easy to copy and paste files from your box to an SD card, or to delete them in needed.

Copying, pasting, moving and deleting all hinge on using the one specific button. The multi-select button. This button sits next to the home button and needs to be selected in order for you to choose the file or folder you want to copy or delete.

It’s important to navigate to the file you want to copy or delete first. Select the button and it will turn yellow

Once the button is yellow, any folder or file you choose from the below window pane, will be selected with a green tick, meaning that it is subject to your next step (copy or delete etc). In the picture below we have scrolled down and selected the folder called ‘Kodi’
