it easier to access your PC with X-plore
if you are in the same network(WIFI), just do a scan with X-plore and connect to the shared libraries.

Even ES file explorer can scan and find the PC. I haven't stressed more on it.

Well X-plore looks great. Hope it stays free.

I use blank password to access my PC, so I've done steps described in the first post, now I have access to everything not only shared folders, why?

Using ES File Explorer for a long time. Playing mkv videos from my Desktop. Easy and efficient solution.
Thanks for make the guide for other posters.

Very detailed guide
Thanks, and confirm works!

Only problem is speed (already stated in guide)
and a bit unreliable as I get timed out copying large files.

Although issue is probably with my wifi.

I prefer Total Commander with LAN plugin, faster manipulation.
