In Lollipop, I was being asked for the app to be used for every action. For example, when I open a link, I was asked for the browser. When I have to select an image, I was asked about the app that would browse for images. This behavior is very convenient for me.

Now after upgrading to marshmallow, I get asked only once, and then that becomes the default. Meaning that if I do a mistake, I'm done. Now for the browser, I see the option for that in settings -> Default Apps. But for selecting images, I don't see that option. I selected ES file explorer for that and I'm stuck with that.

How can I change the default image selector app, or even better, how can I be always asked every time I do an action that requires anything that has multiple apps that can do it, just like it was on lollipop?

EDIT: There's no option to use app only once. Check out the screenshot. enter image description here

  • Clear defaults for ES app/any app from app info and always use JUST ONCE while choosing an app. Jan 2, 2017 at 17:50
  • @MANI thanks for the info about the reset. That is helpful. But there's no choice to use the app only once on my marshmallow, for some reason (check the screenshot). It was there on lollipop though... Jan 2, 2017 at 18:25
  • @beeshyams Actually I already installes "better open with", but it doesn't show in the list of choosing stuff for the problem above. I'm trying choose to add an image in Google Keep. Jan 3, 2017 at 4:33
  • Try local storage app. It works well for me on Marshmallow
