Light File Explorer (Light FE) is a small file manager app. It strives to show all folders and files in one file hierarchy starting on “/”.
To use it, it is good if you are a little bit familiar with Android/*ux file system structure.
Light FE does NOT have a recycle bin for deleted items.
It does NOT have features for connecting to other devices.
It does NOT provide any web or cloud connections.
It does NOT support compressing/extracting archives with password protection.
It does NOT have any prepared easy handling of consumer files like music and pictures.
Light FE can have multiple browse and search views.
Only one view is visible at a time.
This app’s gui is rather rudimentary and very textual. No (space occupying) icons representing files and folders. It has no button toolbars.
All actions are accessed via the app’s three menus:
– File/folder context menu, for file operations.
– View button context menu, for view related actions.
– Main menu for various actions.
It has an extensive search function, where one for example can search for objects that have a certain permission or are hidden.
Supported file operations:
open (default, or force as text or image);
compress & extract (zip or gzip);
create new empty file and folder;
Which file/folder attributes to show is configurable. It is possible to, up to a configurable limit, directly in folder listings see the cumulative size, and number of sub items, of folders.
There is a multi select feature, but only for files – not folders.
Modest permission requirements – it only requires access to external storage.
Free and no ads.
New in 1.23:
– Workspace dialog (Main menu -> Workspaces) reworked.
– Minor fixes.
