File transfer between PC an Android using ES explorer

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

Why is a file transfer between my personal computer and Android device using ES explorer not working? I recently read a review about how to transfer files between PC and Android wirelessly online using ES file explorer. After I enter the IP found in the remote manager on my PC, I got the information that file path not found. What path is the computer complaining about?

If you need to transfer files between your computer and your Android device, here’s how it is done with ES File Explorer. First, on your computer, you need to create a shared folder. For example, create a shared folder called “Android PC share” and set the permissions to read/write access.

Next, on your phone, launch the ES File Explorer app then tap the globe icon located in the upper left corner of the screen then go to “Network” and then select “LAN.” After this, tap “Search” at the bottom to search for available network shares on your local area network.

If your Android device can’t find any, make sure your computer and your Android are connected to the same network and try again. If the search is successful, your computer will appear with its IP address. Next, tap the icon for your computer then enter your Windows username and password. Once you logged in successfully, you should see the shared folder you created.

And that’s it. You can now begin sharing your files between your computer and your Android using ES File Explorer. This isn’t the only app available to share files over Wi-Fi but this is the most popular app everybody uses. Unfortunately, the app is no longer available for download on the Google Play store but you can download apps with the same name.
