By now, most of us have seen the infamous “Google File Explorer” app, which lets you open files, search for them, and even delete them.
It’s a feature that many Android users have complained about since it debuted in 2014.
For some, the app’s design and interface was poorly thought out, especially when it came to how you interact with it.
This is something Google has addressed, with the new File Explorer 5.0.3 update that introduces some key features that are new to the app.
These include a cleaner look and feel, better performance, and better file storage options.

If you don’t, you’ll have to either open a file using File > Open and then use a keyboard shortcut, or right-click on the file and select Open.
The new File > Save shortcut will automatically open the file you’re looking for, and the icon will change to a new one that you can access by clicking on it.
For those of you that have tried the File Explorer for years, it’s definitely a step in the right direction.
But before we jump into the details, let’s first get some basics out of the way: the File app itself doesn’t have any real functionality.
It doesn’t allow you to search for files or create folders, and there’s no “Search” feature that allows you to quickly and easily open a specific file.
Instead, you have to use the “Open” shortcut to open files that are already in your Google Drive folder.
The File app is only available on Android devices running Android 4.3 and higher, and Android 4, 4.4 and 4.5.
The updated File Explorer now works across all major devices running the latest Android versions.
To download the latest File Explorer version, you will need to visit the official Google Play Store and install it.
Once installed, you should have access to the new Google Drive app.
There are some minor changes to the interface, but they’re mostly cosmetic.
It is also worth noting that File Explorer will no longer automatically open files if you right-clicked on them, or if you use the keyboard shortcut “File” instead of “Open.”
To manually open a folder in the File explorer, simply drag it from the sidebar, and then click on the icon on the top right of the File list to bring up the folder list.
The “File List” will now be visible, which will show all the files you can drag in.
Once you click on a file, you get a new option to “Copy” it.
Dragging a file will copy it into your clipboard.
This will take you to a page where you can either open or close the file.
If the file is too large for your browser, you may need to use a different browser.
Alternatively, you could use File > Find Previous or “File > Previous File” to find the file in your Drive folder, and save it to your clipboard (or “Save to Clipboard”).
This will open the previous file in File Explorer, and you can then open it by right-shoving it to the File menu.
In general, this is a very basic file manager, but it should be enough for most people to navigate to a folder on their Drive with no issues.
The next major change that’s been made to File Explorer is in the file manager itself.
The main file manager has been simplified, and its new layout has been tweaked.
You now get three main file types: .txt, .doc, and .docx.
All files will automatically be saved to the Documents folder, as they do on the desktop.
However, some files will not be automatically saved.
To save a file to the Files folder, simply right-Click the file, and select Save to Drive.
The file will be saved as an .html file, as shown in the screenshot above.
All of the file types will be available, including .doc.
You can also drag and drop files from any folder, which opens up the File Menu, as seen below.
To open a new file, simply Right-click it, and click on “Open…”.
The newly opened file will appear in the Files menu.
If there’s already a file open in the same folder as the new file in question, it will automatically appear in that folder, too.
This allows you not only to access the previously opened file, but also to open the new one.
The folder will then be automatically closed, as expected, so you can go back to your previous file without having to open it again.
The same goes for files in the “Find Previous” and “File Previous” folders.
To move files between folders, right- click on one of the files in any of these folders, select
