Is there a way to change the default file manager app without rooting or using custom rom? Xiaomi file manager has so many ads and i want to change it to google files.

i think you can remove - some of the - the ads by going to settings and disabling the "show recommandations" - chinese for show ads

there's a lot of those toggles in miui, also in the security, browser, search in the miui forum there was a guide on where to find them all.

or easier, just go for a custom rom :p

im not to sure you need to set it default, just install the google version from google play and open that insted of the xiaomi version.

youcant really remove it since it's ibstalled as a system app.
