    I have a file manager that is based on ASUS that now closes every time I try to access videos. I have read reviews that says others have seen this as well. What File Manager would you recommend for your S10+? Can I install a new file manager, then uninstall my current one without it touching my SD card or do I need to remove the card first while performing this change?

    I use Samsung's My Files which is already built into the OS. Removing an existing file manager won't affect your data. If you need a file manager that works across a network, x-plore or Astro are good

    I like Google's own Files by Google, or Total Commander. Both are free and ad-free.

    I agree with Mustang, Samsung file manager is pre installed and works great. Give it a try.

    Nothing against Mustang, he's a very helpful guy, but let's give Galactic Zoo a little credit here lol. I didn't bother replying originally because their answer was so concise.

    I think it never hurts to have multiple responses, even if they're all in agreement -- the more the merrier! The validity of the initial response gets reinforced. But yes, Galactic Zoo's response, as always, was a good one!

    personally, find a pre CM owned es file explorer. apk mirror will have it.
    I have the pro version and won't use it. still makes me mad.
    other than that, the stock has worked fine for me. fx has, or at least had, a good reputation. but the others mentioned are also good apps.

    I use Solid explorer as well. Just like the look/feel/themes. Nothing wrong with Samsung My files at all - just preferences. I haven't explored Samsung's that much - I like how I can have bookmarks to my folders, etc.

    Another vote for Solid Explorer. Love the interface, especially with effectively being able to have two viewing windows to use (would be comparable to having two file explorer windows open in Windows). So if you're moving files out of one folder you can have that up, then do a quick slide left and get another instance of the file browser where you're navigating other windows. It's very convenient. It also works very well and easily with connecting to network storage devices such as SMB NAS devices and Windows folders that are shared from a PC to the network.

    ^This and Samsung Find It are useful.
    Setting screen shortcuts for folders you use a lot makes it easier too.
    I have about 4 file managers I use that others have mentioned below.
