I know that AndroidCommander works but its site is offline so I can only download version for windoze.

I ALSO want to do this if possible the other way round too (access PC files in Android not only Android files from PC)

How else can I do this?

  • I've Galaxy S2 with newest Cyanogenmod (Android 4.4.4) and PC with Lubuntu 14.04/14.10 – Natus Vincere Jul 5 '14 at 14:33
  • The best way to add additional information to your question is by editing it. That makes it easier for new visitors to see all the relevant details. – Dan Hulme Jul 5 '14 at 17:07
  • Which way round are you trying to go? The title sounds like you want to use the PC to see the Android files, but the body says the opposite "access PC files in Android". – Dan Hulme Jul 5 '14 at 17:08
  • @DanHulme if possible too "access PC files in Android" – Natus Vincere Jul 5 '14 at 17:19

    Those are completely different questions. This site works best if you ask one question at a time. – Dan Hulme Jul 5 '14 at 17:25

ES File Explorer has this feature.

On the side Navigation bar you have the options that includes Favorites, Local, Library, and Networks. Expand the Network tab and click LAN. You'll see your LAN resources the same way you see them in Windows.

Click on the computer/share you want to browse. You'll have the option to see the items as icons or detailed listings.

Browsing Android Files from the Windows PC

To browse the items on the android from the PC, run an FTP server app on the android (There are many such as: FTP Server Ultimate).

On Windows Explorer you can type the full ftp link server name in the Explorer address bar to browse the files and folders just like the other local files and folders on Windows.

You can also type the command "explorer [ftp link]" in Windows 7 Search field to bring up the folders.

Ftp Link Example:


The numbers after the colon is the port. 2121 is the default port used by most of the android ftp server apps.

  • Thanks I've known about this feature but can it work the other way round ? Also the usb transfer speed should be fatter? – Natus Vincere Jul 5 '14 at 17:30
  • @NatusVincere I updated my answer for the other way round. – L. D. James Jul 5 '14 at 18:08
  • @L-D-James Thank You I should try this if there is no way to do this via usb, meanwhile I'm still looking for it. – Natus Vincere Jul 6 '14 at 4:57
