Regarding which app will be opened when I connect a USB ("OTG") device.
How do I change this setting. I do not wish any of the following apps to open:
(The screenshot shows the situation when I connect a USB flash drive.)
I wish Android stock file manager ("My Files") to open when I connect a USB flash.
A week ago I got problems connecting USB. Test apps for USB say flash disks are connected but I can not see them.
The only time they work is when Android stock file manager opens on connection. It always used to be like that but now "My Files" only opens automatically, occasionally.
It seems to work better for flash drives that have never been connected before. Somehow some apps have decided that they should open for certain defined USB devices. (I may unfortunately have replied yes to some questions earlier.)
I naturally looked in the application manager. I found a relevant setting for one of these programs but not for the remaining.
It is not practical right now to uninstall the programs or format flash drives.
How do I make stock file manager "My Files" open default when USB is connected?
Android 5.0, Galaxy Note 3
If someone else gets the same problem I can add this: The best file managers for USB/OTG that work even if Android can not see the flash drives seem to be:
- Nexus Media Importer ($5)
- Total Commander OTG plug in ($1)
With a modern good speed USB flash drive these two programs copy files with "reasonably" good speed.
