Step by step file management

1 Install a file manager Android doesn't come with the type of file manager you're accustomed to on your PC, so you'll miss the ability to browse through documents, move around or delete media stored on your memory card and organise your email attachments. Fortunately, there are plenty of third-party file manager applications you can add. We like Ol File Manager, a free download from the Android Market.

2 Browse your memory Once installed and launched, the application can browse the contents of your handset and any media cards being used. If you can see a Home icon at the top of the folder list and an SD Card icon beneath it, you're currently looking at the device memory. Tap the SD Card icon to browse the contents of your media card, and the Home icon to return to the phone's internal memory.

Filemanager allows you to browse your SD card, create directories, rename, copy, move, and delete files. It also acts as an extension to other applications to display "Open" and "Save" dialogs.

5 Create a folder Ol File Manager also lets you create new folders (or rename existing ones), then move files into them. To create a new folder on the media card, tap the SD Card icon, then tap the Menu button and choose New Folder. Give it a name.

Organise files To copy, move, rename or delete a file, you need only find it and then hold a finger down on it. You'll see different options depending on the file type. Choose Send to transfer the file to another device using Bluetooth or email.

5 Rename files Mobile devices have a tendency to generate files with meaningless names, such as photos that your camera labels with sequential numbers. One of the benefits of a file manager app is that you can easily rename files that are important to you. The only caveat is that you must be careful not to edit the file extension (the three letters after the dot), or the file may become unreadable until the correct extension is put back. Hold a finger down on a file and choose Rename, and a simple box will appear in which you can enter a new name.
