In theory, there is not a way to access your phone's memory card with a drive letter, because, as you said, Android now connects it as an MTP device, and not as a Mass Storage device. But, there are two solutions: Root phone and get a "Mass Storage" enabler application that will work on your phone. Without rooting phone: as long as both the computer are on ...

I then changed the storage mode to "...

.exe Files are Windows binaries (i.e. executable files/applications/programms) that can not be run natively on a Android system. I am sure the Play Store (or the alternatives of the Play Store) will have an equivalent app to the .exe file you are trying to run.

My method is based on the answer suggesting WebDAV. It could be replicated by an FTP, Samba or other networked file server. Essentially you start a WebDAV server on your android device, and mount it as a network drive. Your phone's IP must be visible to the computer you want to browse the files on. Generally this means you must be on the same local ...

You (or someone else) probably accidentally click this banner on the main screen. And "Accept" the offer. (Note: this dialog may also pop-up on reboot) - OR - Avast pushed the installation silently (which I still doubt since it didn't happen on my case). Avast gets the Google accounts saved on the Chrome, and it's possible for them to offer ...

Okay I finally found something which helped me. The Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N & KN (all editions) alias KB-3010081 is for the first version of Windows 10. But for the Windows 10 with the big update we had a few time ago, there is an update which supersedes the KB-3010081. This is the KB-3099229 : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/...

I had to add the following lines in the android_winusb.inf ...

I finally found my problem. This might have been specific to my Windows machine, but I'm writing it down here in case someone else has the same problem. Turns out I didn't have a usb.inf file in my C:\Windows\inf directory. Apparently some installers/uninstallers have been known to mess with that file. I found the tip in this thread while trying to figure ...
