Why can't you move files around your device storage on the Google pixel?


AC Question

I can access my Pixel's storage by going into settings, or even going to downloads. But if I create a new folder in the storage directory, I cant select files and move them to that folder. It only gives me the left tabular option to move my files to my drive. Why is the Google Pixel storage manager so non-intuitive? There arent even any privacy settings for folders. It is already difficult to download photos and simply store them on your device and not on google photos and your device.

Older android OS at least had the "private" setting, where things moved to that folder would only be seen when you authenticated first. Along with a built in "My Files" app that let you move things around as you please.
