    So I downloaded a few notifications from Zedge and the downloaded tones ended up in my music folder. So now, while listening to my music, I hear my ringtones / notifications randomly while listening to music.

    They don't overlap, ringtones act like music and are played as such.

    Are they supposed to be in the music folder?

    I don't know if they are to be in the music folder. Mine go to the media file on my sd card, but still play in Power app. Is there a setting to stop the playing of notifications in your music app as power app has? Can you tell your app from where to take the music from,ie,music or media folder?

    Are you sure those downloaded ringtones/notifications are actually located in your "Music" folder or do they just appear as tracks in the Music player?

    Right....They appear as tracks in the Music player / and when I want to change a notification I see them there. But, when listening to music they are played as well.

    Just trying to separate them so that they don't play like music.

    Using My Files app locate the folder that contains your downloaded ringtones/notifications, place a blank ".nomedia" file in it, they will be excluded from the library scan and will not appear as music in the player.

    You'll need to power off and then power on again to force a file scan.

    So I went to the Notification folder and Ringtone folder - neither have any of my notifications/ringtones.

    If I place the .nomedia file in my music file, will that kill the music? Or would it be simpler to just move the tones to their perspective file?

    I wouldn't expect to find Zedge sounds in Ringtones or Notifications folders, they are probably stored in Zedge's own folder in Device storage>Android>data but I can't be sure, I never used the app.
