  1. Customizable "quick actions"

    I realised many of my actions within Solid Explorer consist of moving files, most of the time, from/to the same folder.

    I would therefore appreciate to see some sort of customizable "quick actions", showing on the contextual menu of the action bar when long-pressing a file/folder.

    Something like "Move to the xxx folder", "Copy to the xxx" folder".

    That could also be extended to some other actions that I don't have in mind yet.

    Thanks !

    • Cryptomator

      Hi, it would be awesome to have a Cryptomator plugin to create, or open existing vaults.

      Best wishes

      • Icon on files which has an app set as default to open with

        Similar to how it works on Windows PCs. For example (see sceenshot)
        - for .png files I've choosen to use QuickPic as default: icon appears in thumb corner
        - for .Skedio files I've choosen Skedio app as default: Skedio icon appears inside circle

        • Show play icon on video thumbnail

          Currently I can enable "show thumbnails" and "animate thumnbnails" for video files. However I don't want to animate thumbnails to be able to distinguish between images and videos. Can you add triangle or any other icon to bottom right corner of video thumbnails?

          • SQLite viewer/editor

            Amaze file manager includes an SQLite viewer, it would be great if an sqlite editor (or at least a viewer) was added to Solid Explorer.

            • Backup service for storage

              Would be nice to incoporate scheduled backup service for storage manager.

              E.g. the ability to make a scheduled backup of data from say a LAN/SMB or cloud service location to your internal memory.

              Thank you for the greatest filemanager all categories!

              • Support DocumentsProvider/Storage Access Framework

                It would be great if Solid Explorer can access a DocumentsProvider created by another app (eg. google drive), this way you don't have to implement every single cloud services, if there's other app that can create a DocumentsProvider for that service. The built in Download app support this in the hamburger menu.

                • A New Google Drive Login!

                  Hi friends!
                  I love Solid Explorer. The option to drag files to other folders is amazing! The Cloud Manager too.
                  I only have one suggestion at the moment (although I use Android 4.4 and I do not know how it happens in other versions):
                  Google Drive login could be done "via browser" without havin to connect a new account in the device.
                  I do not see this as a problem, but separate device login would be better.
                  Thank you very much!

                    • Select interval

                      Please bring in option for selecting files at interval. For eg. If I want to select files from 10 to 25 out of 1 to 30, I need to select first and last file i.e. 10 and 25 and hit SELECT INTERVAL option and it will do what it says.

                        • Give an option to lock Hidden folders

                          Please give an option to lock Hidde Folders with fingerprint & Password like it already has for Clouds.

                          Now anybody can access Hidden Folders without master password. Need to access it only with password or fingerprint and please place a .nomedia file in that. So, nobody can see it in other media player Apps

                                Hello there.
                                As a daily user of Solid Explorer I would love to browse other phones' file systems via my usb otg cable. As many know Android uses the MTP protocol to transfer files between devices by usb.

                                    It would be nice if the app would provide NFS support. The libnfs library has existing android support https://github.com/sahlberg/libnfs. It is already being used by the Kodi app.

                                      • Add a feature to create symlink

                                        I see possibility to create symlinks (soft links) handy on phones.

                                        Here is examples.

                                        * I want to use Syncthing, Parrot recorder, camer apps and other great apps. That apps store a lot of data, but nevertheless great apps, save that lot of appdata to Internal memory.

                                        * Syncthing guys said Go lang dosn't support SD write to SD cards in Android yet.

                                        * Many camera apps save photos/videos to their folder, that can't be changed.

                                        * Some phones, like my Lenovo K3 Note also have some weird play around SD card. So some apps think internal memory is my…

                                        • Android Wear file transfer

                                          I would like to reopen this old idea as I have seen it was previously discarded. Adding access to an Android wear device to copy/move files between phone and watch is useful and can give us a few extra GB always available in our watch. Also, this can be useful to manage Google Play Music files and many others.
