    Default Issues reading from SD card

    I am often in areas where I get no phone reception and no WiFi.
    I'd like to be able to access documents and files offline from my SD card.

    I tried copying from my computer to my SD card (with the card in the phone) the following:
    - images I "saved as" from websites
    - screenshots
    - a PDF document
    - a Microsoft Word document
    - an internet shortcut
    - a folder with all of the above in it, named "Test".

    These were the results:
    - Images and screenshots showed up in my (photo) Gallery in "All photos" and "Other".
    - "Test" showed up in Gallery as well, but with only the pictures.
    - I cannot locate the PDF or Word documents, or the internet shortcut.

    * Are the basic programs stored on the phone, but they access the files that are on the SD card? *
    That would be O.K.
    Can anyone speak to this question?

    If this is the case, I just need to know how to:
    - access the missing items
    - add folders in Gallery

    Thanks in advance.

    Try using a file manager like X-plore. It will allow you to find your files then just click them and a popup should direct you to a selection of apps on your phone to use to view the file.

    I just installed X-plore. Will explore it ASAP.
    Thanks for the lead.
