Default [Q] LG G3 File Manager ~ Is there one & does it accept Storage Cards[Solved]

Guys,
Does the G3 come with a File Manager and more importantly if it does then does it support the MicroSD card and other Storage options (USB peripherals)?
As many will know Google removed in KitKat the option to copy and remove items from external storage unless they have write permissions.

Now Sony got round this problem by installing 'File Manager' on the Z2 and it has write permissions for accessing the MicroSD card.

It would be ludicrous if LG left out a File Manager with write permission for storage peripherals.
Your only option for access to the MicroSD card for writing, copying, deleting etc. then would be to root and not everyone wishes to do that.
.........I don't always get your questions right.... but you'll certainly know I've tried.

P.S. Many thanks for the Thanks votes. Thanks received are converted into a charitable donation.

Brilliant...... At least now I know I'll be able to send/receive data from either Internal/Cloud Services/USB TO THE MicroSD card.

I'm not asking but I bet the default File Manager is basic in operation, which would then beg to say why do manufacturers insist on using just the basic method for managing files!
