    Can't Access Files On Nexus 5

    I've just bought Nexus 5. I have connected the phone to the PC and transferred some files from the PC to the phone. But how can I access those files on the phone? There are no "My Files" or any thing similar like my previous android phone (Samsung Galaxy Ace) had.

    I think what you need is a file explorer. Try this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.metago.astro

    Does your phone pop up on your computer? I had this issue and had to go to the LG site and download the drivers from them. Once I did that, I was able to access my phone.

    If you just want to explore files on your phone, then something like ES File Explorer would do the trick.

    Yes, I can access my phone through my computer. I just can't access the files from my phone.
