It is not entirely clear whether you are referring to a tab in the main list view or a bookmark in the bookmark/history drawer but the basics of managing both are described in this post https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mixplorer-q-a-and-faq-user-manual.3308582/post-65157342:

In that post see
3) "Bookmarks/History (Drawer) To Delete or modify a bookmark:"
4) "Tabs To save an individual Tab be opened to a specific location at each app start (default tab)"

If that is not working then please share a screenshot or a detailed description of actions taken (tap this, drag that, etc).
Nevermind, cleared the App to default and now it's normal.

That would seem to indicate the resetting of a change you previously made and does not clarify whether that change was to the bookmarks or the tab settings. If resetting the app works for you great, but since that is a fairly extreme measure which will reset many things in the app, if it occurs again it should be easy to fix without resetting the app if you share details.

MiX Nugget - Storage Analyzer

There is a way to view some storage statistics with MiXplorer by creating a custom search bookmarks and saving it. From the root of a drive or from a sub-folder, perform a recursive search for type = folder like so:

- Navigate to desired location > tap Search button > long press recursive search arrow (in lower right corner) > select Contains in the first drop-down and leave the criteria blank > select "Type" = Folder > Tap GO.

- When the scan has completed (which may take a few minutes) you should see details of the folders with bars representing the amount of space.

- The scan parameters can be bookmarked just like any folder like so: Close search bottom bar (tap x at lower left corner) > Long press the location in main bar > Add to... > Bookmarks.

- When the bookmark is selected the search and population of statistics graphics will occur.

. For more details enable "more details" in view settings. Details that are not visible in the scan results might be visible other places.

Note: It is occasionally requested for MiXplorer to have some sort of storage analyzer, and sometimes there are lively discussions about how substantial such feature should be. This FAQ Nugget describes the current implementation without taking sides in those discussions and without encouraging the restriction of those discussions. The current implementation is obviously not a full-featured storage analyzer which is to the point of those lively discussions - may they continue. :) If the implementation changes then the FAQ description will be modified accordingly.

I use it in a tablet and it shows Internal and SDCard tabs at the same time i'm trying to remove the SDCard Tab but nothing happens, using the search in thread i did not found anything related, how to remove the Tab? I just need one at time, like in Phone.
I am not clear either, but I am thinking you are asking something simpler than what @IronTechmonkey is asking/checking.

Are you saying?
  1. When you click the close tab "X", it does not close? its the little"X" right of the tab name.
  2. When you close the tab & exit MiX and then comeback in, the tab is re-opened?
If its 2, then you need to save the new tab layouts, or set it to auto save the tabs on exit.

I installed the updated MiX (which I have been holding out on since I didnt get FTP servers working with TLS). I was planning on searching the thread on how to get it up and running, but I notice you explicitly only have instructions for "older versions of MiX". Is it still unclear how to get FTP working with TLS, with the latest updates?

Maybe you were looking at the post while I was doing the edits earlier today. Instructions for the new server setup grew in a new post, then earlier today I swapped the original post about the old servers with the new post. The OP about servers now describes the new server. All of it is referenced and linked from the Nuggets index post. Additionally there is an a separate nugget about Security Options. That also is linked from the Nuggets index and the various server post contain links to each other. Those posts are also referenced and Linked In the announcement about recent fact changes 4 post above this one.

That's why I specifically referenced and provided partial instructions for saving the tabs.

MiX Nugget - Tools; Duplicates & App Remnants

Note: If not carefully used these tools, in particular the app remnants feature, may allow you to delete files whose function are unknown and which may still be needed. As with any app cleaning utility the user must make sure to know what items are being deleted.

Additionally, be advised that in these lists an X next to the name of an individual item will delete that item while the X in the upper right corner of the box will close the box.

-----------------------
Duplicates:

Navigate to a folder > Menu > Tools > Duplicates > [operation runs in background] > when scan is complete then tap notification (operation finished) > in list of duplicated items tap an item name to expand duplicate of that item > tap X to delete duplicate item.

-----------------------
App Remnants:

Navigate to a folder > Menu > Tools > App Remnants > tap the X next to an individual item’s name to delete that item or Remove all to remove all.

FAQ Update: The MiX Nugget Index

The MiX Nugget Index is now proably the first place most people would want to look for usage instructions about a particular feature. The basic UI interactions and main view and some basic file management actions are still described in the OPs, as is Bug reporting and skiinning/theming.

The MiX Nugget Index post has been alphabetized, links confirmed, post titles edited for consistency and perhaps most helpful... each linked MiX Nugget post now contains a link back to the MiX Nugget Index, which may help to avoid some of the inefficiently circular post browsing that is required in the XDA app.

After some time trying to figure out which option I messed up I found it, It was in the "View/Options/Dual panel in landscape" if this is active you cannot delete the Tab of course, so that's it.

Sorry for the rudeness write but I was upset that day, so after some time trying to figure out which option I messed up I found it, It was in the "View/Options/Dual panel in landscape" if this is active you cannot delete the Tab of course, so that's it.

This Dual Panel views is nice for tablet but the Android gestures kill's the experience if you access the right Panel you need to use the Right gesture to go back from a folder, if you use Left gesture the selected Panel changes to Left it's annoying

End up I figured out it was problems with the old Public/Private key pair that I use, they works for others apps.

Have to regenerated a set of new key pair in the host side, copy over the private key (in my case, to Chromebook) then tap the (i) (info) button of the private key file (thanks, J.Michael), append the file path to "private_key_path=" and Bingo!

I spent a good couple of hours trying to get passwordless key auth to work today, using my phone's ECDSA key. The MiXplorer logs aren't very helpful on this with the logging level that's enabled, but after testing the key (and some other ones I'd generated) with a couple of other apps it became clear that MiX was the only common factor in the keys not working.

I couldn't find a way to delete known host keys from within the app but did find out where they're stored in MiX's private user directory (/data/data/com.mixplorer) which led me to a solution.

I've eventually surmised the following, which I'm putting here in lieu of any actual documentation on the subject:

  • The only key algorithm I could get to work was Ed25519
  • Algorithms which I couldn't get to work were ECDSA 521-bit (my default), ECDSA 384-bit and RSA 4096-bit. I think I tried RSA 2048-bit too but I'm not sure. These were all tested successfully with JuiceSSH and Solid Explorer from the phone but failed in MiX
  • The Ed25519 key should be in PEM format in a file accessible to MiX, with the full file path set as the value of private_key_path as mentioned above. My Advanced Settings section didn't have this key/value entry at first, but rather pem_private_key_path which I think was inherited from an older version of MiX and presumably wasn't part of the upgrade process
  • While I'd prefer to store the key directly in MiX's settings to avoid having a private key lying around in an accessible file on my phone, I can't find a way of getting private_key_base64 (or the older pem_private_key_base64) to work at all
Hope this helps somebody. I think this stuff should be documented because if it's difficult for people to do things securely, they'll just do them less securely instead :)

I'm happy to finally have SFTP access back in my primary file explorer, which I haven't had since I finally ditched ES File Explorer when it became apparent it wasn't going to stop getting worse. On the whole MiX has improved over time, so big thanks to the creator.

I tried several other clients from Play Market, they connect fine

I read it, but I don't quite understand what kind of instruction is needed to just enter IP, login and password

SFTP is not well documented in the FAQ because I don't use it and not as many people seem to use it as FTP. I plan to create an index of the various types of storage that can be added but that will be just the framework and will require input from users to fill in. There have been some posts by users who have done troubleshooting and gotten SFTP to work including one fairly recently. I don't know that those posts would apply to your situation and the XDA search feature is not working so they might be hard to find but it might be worth trying to find them while waiting for answers here.

I asked @HootanParsa

So the problem was in connection

sftp://255.255.255.255:22/tmp/mnt/C972-3CF2

It's also must have remote path

PS Sorry for English.

Ah, thank you for explaining. I had seen a reference to the remote path in a previous post but forgot about it. I'll bookmark these posts and try to make some useful documentation from them. By the way no worries about language, I understood what you were describing. Thanks again.

    I think nobody had seen my request 😏
    I've seen it, but as I don't have a device with Android 12, I can't be of much help. Maybe that's the reason, you didn't get an answer at all until now. A12 is still new. But as I've read your post again, I'd like to try an answer.

    To not reproduce the same discussion about usb OTG answered a lot of times in the thread :
    As you've read the information about how to get otg work and it still doesn't work, you could take a log and post it in the main thread of MiXplorer. Maybe only the developer can find a solution. In Addition, please follow the steps about how to report a bug, e.g. Android 12 is quite unspecific.

    2) copying speed is the half of what I have in other explorers (solid for exemple) take a look at attachments
    Maybe thats because you use different paths: /mnt/media... and usb://... Does the copying speed differ also when you use the same paths? If yes, that may be also worth logging...

    Hello everyone, thanks a lot to the devs for their great work (I enjoy a lot of customization that offers mixplorer). To not reproduce the same discussion about usb OTG answered a lot of times in the thread :
    1) I'm on A12 ROM, usb is detected, but after a delay of 10-15s, and if it's connected with mixplorer, it can't be detectable in any other app
    2) copying speed is the half of what I have in other explorers (solid for exemple) take a look at attachments
    3) is there anyway to make "drag and drop" automatically move files, without the options pop-up View attachment 5512695View attachment 5512697

    OT-ish

    A riddle (derived from a classic which seems to exists in different forms in many cultures) which somewhat puts screen choices into perspective.

    ---------------
    - You are in a room that has two doors and in which there are two computers.
    - One door leads to safety and the other door leads to death.
    - Your goal is to determine which door leads to safety.
    - One computer always provides correct answers and the other computer always provides incorrect answers.
    - You do not know which computer answers correctly and which answers incorrectly
    - You may ask one question of either computer (not one each but rather one question to the computer of your choice).

    Which computer do you ask?
    What question do you ask?
    What do you do once you have the answer?
    ---------------

    The somewhat abstract point being - that choices matter and having to avoid some which are known to be bad is a nice problem to have compared to having to figure out a riddle like that one to save your life. I don't know if I could have figured it out had I not first read it; I'll post the answer later if none of you smarty pants get to it first. :D

    I have a question for you all. Is there possibility to copy couple of folders to another one in one command? I have planned task and i want to do something like backup couple of folders in one command e.g. copy Documents Download DCIM to BACKUP. Is it possible?

    There may be a few ways to achieve something similar what you want.

    Select the two folders in the same tab if possible or in separate tabs then run the copy process which will apply to all selected items.

    Setting which allows merging tasks of the same type so that once queued the tasks can be run as one: Settings > more settings > merge tasks = enabled.

    Another option might be to use the auto task feature to create separate tasks for each folder with each using the same scheduling criteria. This is a bit more complex but could be used to schedule the task automatically.

    There are other more involved ways for instance having a script file or using the command function which might come in handy if you do this frequently but I would suggest starting with the simple selection of multiple items in different tabs or using the merge tasks option.

    MiX Nugget - Access NTFS Partitions viaOTG drive in Android 11 (and other situations):

    - Install this app (or another one like it) which allows access to NTFS partitions: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paragon.tcplugins_ntfs_ro&hl=en_GB&gl=US.

    - Then add it as Provider in MiXplorer: Toolbar > Add > Document provider.

    The 3rd party app will handle the mounting and prompts after which the provider can be added in MiX, and the 3d party app may now handle mounting for all OTG drives (I'm not ure if it only invokes for NTFS}.

    Note: the exFAT/NTFS for USB app trial usage is odd. There are only buttons to pay but and I'm not sure which specific actions caused it to mount the drive in free mode. In any event It was able to access an NTFS formatted 32GB SD card via USB OTG devices running rooted stock Moto Android 10 and 11.

    This has also been folded into the Workarounds nugget.

    I need help with batch renaming files. For example, i have old.txt and new.txt in a folder named "doc". So I want to batch rename them to old_doc.txt and new_doc.txt. Is it doable and if so, how do I do it?

    For that example, if I understand it correctly :

    Rename > Regex > Replace A with B

    "A" should be ".txt" and "B" should be "_doc.txt"

    If it's more complicated than that, then follow the previous reply.
    4
    FYI the regex suggestions in these threads represent a small proportion of what can be done with regex and are not presented as a complete solution, just answers to some commonly used syntaxes. It's likely that if you delve into some of the linked external resources regarding regex you may be able to find a good suggestion although doing all that may be beyond the point of diminishing returns as to how much time can be dedicated to finding a solution.
    I think @pocketrule is right: the current program just does not provide the full path, so there is no way for the regex to come up with a piece of a parent directory's name.

    Note: If you are just starting with MiXplorer then a general review of this FAQ might be helpful but if you seek information about a particular feature you can see if there is a "MiX Nugget" for it. MiX Nuggets are individual freestanding FAQ posts which describe a MiXplorer feature in enough detail for basic use without having to sift through whole FAQ. v. MiX NUGGETS (Freestanding Topical Posts).

    --------------------------------------
    i) INTRODUCTION

    As mentioned in an introduction from the main thread: "MiXplorer (Mix of Explorers) is a fast, smooth, beautiful, reliable and fully-featured file manager with a simple and intuitive user interface." created by XDA member and Recognized Developer @HootanParsa

    I (IronTechmonkey) am a MiXplorer user and tester who volunteered (was volunteered) to create the FAQ but I am not the/a developer.

    This FAQ attempts to describe configuration options, file & folder operations, UI options, and utilities, as well as to share workarounds for known issues or usage cases. Please feel free to provide, suggestions, corrections, or additions which could be linked to or added to the OPs. Thanks to all for your input already as much of this comes from your questions and answers in the main MiXplorer thread. Thanks to @HootanParsa for such a good file management utility.

    Please continue to direct bug reporting and tech discussion to the primary MiXplorer thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1523691.

    SOME MIXPLORER HISTORY (MiXtory?)

    This post by HootanParsa describes a how MiXplorer got started and some key events during its relationship with Google Play Store. https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...y-featured-file-manager.1523691/post-77894840

    Here is another note from HootanParsa regarding the history of MiXplorer on Playstore https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1523691&p=73870110.

    MiXplorer is closed source, and because the developer rarely if ever engages in discussions about closed vs. open source this is not discussed at length in the main MiX thread. This is not by any rule but rather by respect for the developer's decision. That being said, past discussions about closed vs. open source have been well informed and informative. Such discussions really do relate to software development, if not to the bugs to be fixed at any given moment, so please feel free to have such discussions here if/when they become too much for the main thread.

    GETTING MIXPLORER

    There are several ways to get MiXplorer and keep it updated, each of which may appeal to different usage cases. Also note: The Playstore-Silver and XDA-Stable versions of MiXplorer are essentially the same (sometimes with small variation) but the Playstore-Silver version includes some add-ons (describe below and at Playstore page) which would have to be installed separately and manually in the XDA version.

    The Playstore_Silver version is also a way to contribute to MiXplorer development.

    As to upgrade paths: The Play Store gives a one-shot installation and upgrade path for the app and its included add-ons. The XDA stable version allows users to decide specifically which add-ons are installed but offers a similarly simple upgrade path from with the app.

    1) Main Thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1523691
    This is the best place to start for people who want the latest stable version, which is usually available in post 2. This is also where you can get the latest beta version. Note: it is always a good idea to check the main thread's OPs to see what version # is flagged as stable, as well as check the change-log.

    2) XDA Labs. It might still be possible to use the XDA labs site in web browsers but no longer the XDA Labs app to download MiX. The MiXplorer version may not be exactly the same as latest "stable" in MiXplorer thread but this is a "stable" update track.

    3) APK Mirror: This is a repository of more versions of MiX than most people would need, but some of these builds may be helpful in some situations and it provides access outside of Playstore.
    MiX at APK Mirror: https://www.apkmirror.com/uploads/?q=pishrodevs.

    4) APKMirror RSS Feeds: https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/pishrodevs/mixplorer-hootanparsa/feed/
    [inactive?]http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/hootanparsa/feed/ The ApkMirror RSS feeds are considered by many to be a similarly "stable" and up to date as the main MiXplorer thread and XDA Labs but it offers less information about the development progression of recent updates.

    5) Playstore (MiXplorer Silver). As announced by HootanParsa here https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=78465999&postcount=27232; "MiX Silver a bundle of MiX with Archive and SMB2 addons and the latest language resources is uploaded in Play store as a paid app to support the development of MiXplorer. If you liked it and installed it and found a problem, please let me know. Thank you very much. "

    Add-ons: MiXplorer Add-ons can be installed from within the app like this:
    Settings > Addons > and click add button > follow links to browse and download appropriate add-ons.

    MiXplorer Add-ons are also available through the XDA Labs Android app (search for MiXplorer) or through the XDA Labs Store browser pages for the MiXplorer app and Developer Hootan Parsa

    Note: these links may no longer work.

    --------------------------------------
    INSTALLATION:

    After installing MiXplorer there are some things that must be done in order to give MiXplorer proper access to storage locations and root or SU access. It is a good idea to get these things out of the way as part of the installation (or update) of MiXplorer rather than on-the-fly as you need to perform file management tasks. Here is a brief walk-through of how to give MiXplorer it's requisite permissions. This is written for Android Nougat which has more of these prerequisites than earlier Android versions so please note that things may differ across different ROMs and SU/root methods:

    Do this stuff first, immediately after installing MiXplorer but before configuring it and importing skins and or settings

    - At first run of MiXplorer at prompt "Allow MiXplorer to access photos, media, and files on your device?" Select to Allow.
    - Make sure root is enabled in MiX setting > Navigate to Root "/" to force first time SU permissions request > Select " allow" and "remember".
    - Navigate to external SD and create a new folder. There should a prompt "Attention Please select Ext SD... to gain permissions". Note: In some situations you may not have to create a folder to invoke this prompt.

    BUG REPORTING

    - Please report bugs in the primary MiXplorer thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1523691. Bug reports should include. details about your device (Android version, ROM version, Root status, SU method, MiXplorer version) as well as a step by step description of how to reproduce the issue and a log taken while the issue was reproduced. There are more suggestions for testing, logging and reporting bugs in this post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=65157367&postcount=7

    ------------------------------------
    3) Bookmarks/History (Drawer)

    To open the Drawer for Bookmarks and History: Tap hamburger in Main Bar, or swipe from the left edge toward right.

    To create a Bookmark to a location on the device: Navigate to the location, then long press the Location in the Main (top) Bar, then tap "Add to...", then tap "Bookmarks"; or Navigate to one level above the folder, then long press the folder in the file/folder list, then tap overflow menu, then tap "Add to...", then tap "Bookmarks". :

    To create a Bookmark to a network share, server or cloud: Open Drawer, then tap hamburger, then tap Add storage, then select and configure the type of storage. There is a "Custom" option at the bottom of the list. Here are examples of 2 common types of network bookmarks:

    1) To access shared folder (SMB share) on PC or other computer on same local network.:
    - Have a shared folder on a computer with file sharing and network discovery enabled.
    - Open MiXplorer on device connected to same network.
    - Bookmarks Drawer
    - Hamburger button
    - Add Storage
    - Custom
    - Search local
    - Enter credentials
    - If the search finds no shares there may be an issue with the sharing on the host or network between devices but you could try manual configuration.

    2) To access an FTP Server on another device:.
    - Have an FTP server to connect to.
    - Bookmarks Drawer
    - Hamburger button
    - Add Storage
    - Custom
    - Enter server details (ftp://<ipaddress>:<port>, user-name password)

    Notes about network and cloud bookmarks:

    - When you create a connection to local network share or cloud via <Bookmark Drawer - hamburger - Add storage>, a Bookmark will automatically be created.

    - Depending on the type of network location, when you browse the network location you may or may not be able to create bookmarks to locations within that tree as described above. This should work for SMB shares on a computer or folders on another Android device accessed via MiXplorer FTP and might work for others.

    - When you save an off-device bookmark, some context sensitive additional configuration variables may or may not be added to the "Advance settings" field, which in some cases can be edited manually later.

    To Delete or modify a bookmark: Open the Drawer, then swipe the bookmark name to the right, then select appropriate action.

    To rearrange bookmarks: Open the Drawer, then tap and drag a bookmark by it’s icon up or down.

    To create a custom category (similar to custom bookmark for a search) in the bookmark list: Open 'All files' - Tap on the search button - Recursively - Enter file-name extensions eg; *.zip|*.rar|*.txt - Press GO - Long press the address bar - Add to bookmarks.

    To reset the search-all-by=type folders (archive, apk,image, video, etc) if they are gray and don't work: If you are updating from an older version of MiXplorer you may have to click on bookmark menu and choose "reset default" (which should preserve your own bookmarks) to recreate the new versions of the search bookmarks, then you can delete the gray ones.

    Bookmark functions via the Bookmarks Menu: Add storage Reset defaults; Remove all, Export. Note: To import bookmarks, open the exported .micfg file with MiXplorer and select import.

    To switch between Bookmarks and History : Open Drawer then tap the Bookmarks or History label in top Bar.

    To clear history: Open Drawer to History, then tap mini-hamburger.

    --------------------------------------
    4) Tabs

    1st Tab is left-most. Last Tab is right-most. New tabs will open to the right of the active tab.

    General Tab functions can be accessed via the tab menu and are context sensitive, based on Tab bar visibility and tab arrangement.

    Some functions can can be accessed by long pressing on a Tab when the Tab Bar is visible.

    To refresh a Tab’s view: Swipe down, or tap on the name in the Tab Bar, or tap the location name in main bar then tap it again in the drop down.

    To open a new tab:
    - Open Bookmarks/History
    - Long press on the item that you want to open in a new tab
    or
    - Select a folder in the main page
    - Tap the overflow menu in the action bar
    - Tap "Open in new tab",
    or;
    - Tap the Tab menu then tap "Add new tab"
    or;
    - When on last (right-most) tab, Swipe from right edge to left (depends on "Settings" - ""More Settings" - "Swiping in first and last...")


    Save single tab as default tab or to save a group of tabs (Note: "Save" may occasionally be referred to as "Pin")

    To save an individual Tab be opened to a specific location at each app start (default tab)
    - Have only one tab opened.
    - Navigate to desired location.
    - Long press on Tab Title then tap "Set as default".
    - Open the Tab drop-down menu, select, "Save tabs", Tap "Now" (leave "On Exit" un-selected).

    To save a group of tabs (tab-set) to be opened at each app start:
    - Create the tabs, and open each to the location of your choice.
    - To set the default tab (to be active at app start) long press on Tab Title then tap "Set as default".
    - Open the Tab drop-down menu, select, "Save tabs", Tap "Now" (leave "On Exit" un-selected).
    Note: View detail level and sort order should be remembered per tab.

    To have MiXplorer save the tab-set that is in place at each app close (to be opened at next app app start):
    - Open the Tab menu.
    - Select check box: "On Exit".

    To reset tabs to whatever was last saved by 'Save tabs - Now" or by "Save tabs - On exit":
    - Open the Tab menu then tap Reset tabs. Each Tab's view level and sort order should be remembered and not be reset by this action.


    5) Views (file folder list)

    There are many ways to configure the file/folder list views using the "View" and "Sort" buttons which appear in the Tools bar at the bottom (in the default skin and configuration). Here are a few of the more notable functions:

    - "View" button - "Recursive data": When "Recursive data" is enabled (and after a refresh of the view) MiXplorer will calculate and show the quantity of items and storage space uses in sub-folders.

    - "View" button - "Reset defaults": When "Reset defaults" is enabled then pinch zoom settings can be reset to default for each drive independently by going to root of drive, then selecting a view mode (eg "Detailed"). To maintain the different zoom levels disable "Reset defaults".

    - "Pin" an item to top of list: A folder or file can be "Pinned" so it stays at the top of the list view regardless of sort options. To pin/unpin an item: Select it then open menu then select pin/unpin. Similarly, apps in the "Open with" list can be pinned to the top of that list by long pressing the app then tapping "Pin"

    - Create a custom thumbnail: To create a custom thumbnail for a folder (which would be used when "Auto folder preview" is enabled in main settings) put the image you want to use for the thumbnail in the folder and rename it to .preview.

    - Gallery style view for search folders: For the search folders which show all of a certain file type (eg Audio, Document, Image, Video), there is a gallery style view which shows all images of the designated type on the device but grouped in folders by location similar to the way most default gallery apps work. To enable this mode: Tap the "Sort" button then enable "By parent". To show all items in one list without the folders, disable "By parent"

    - App, User App, System App: When viewing contents of the "App" search bookmark, tapping on Location allows choice of App (all), User App, System App. To create a custom bookmark to any of those: Tap the Location in Main Bar, then select desired view (App, User App, or System App) then long press location and "Add to" bookmarks.

    6) "Home" page

    A full page panel containing locations with details, described in more detail here: MiX Nugget - Home Page - https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=82781209&postcount=1168

    View Customization (more in Skins/Themes)

    Disable Thumbnails (folder specific}: Place image in folder > rename to .nothumbnail
    Custom Folder Icon (folder specific): Place image in folder > rename to .foldericon
    Custom Folder Icon Preview (folder specific): Place image in folder > rename to. preview

    Notes:
    - Some image properties may not function properly. Icons can be optimized here: https://tinypng.com/
    - Some of these may depend on a related setting within the app (eg .preview file and setting "Auto folder preview")

    iii. WORKING WITH FILES & FOLDERS

    Search, searching for items: Expanded description of search methods in this post. MiX Nugget - Searching for Files and Folders: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=82781351&postcount=1170

    Select a file or folder: Long press anywhere on the file, or tap on the icon at the left side.

    Select multiple files and or folders: Select one file or folder as described above and then select additional items by tapping on the name of each item.

    Select all files and folders in the current view: Tap the "Select all" button in the tools bar, or open overflow menu and tap Select all. Note: the Select all button and the Servers button can be swapped in the Tools Bar via Settings - More Settings.

    Once you have selected any item(s) the Action Bar will appear (temporally replacing the Main Bar) and will show a counter of selected items with their size, and icons for some standard actions with an overflow menu for more actions. The downward pointing arrow now offers options to expand shift or invert the selection.

    There are several ways to to Copy or Move items:

    Task queue Select items, then choose an action (repeat process for multiple jobs), then navigate to destination, then tap Job Queue, then select queued task.

    - Individual pending tasks or all pending tasks can be cleared from the queue.

    - Pending Copy tasks in the queue can be repeated to different destinations.

    Drag & drop: Select some items then long press on that selection and drag. A hovering pop-up will appear indicating how many selected items are being dragged.When the the destination folder becomes highlighted, release the selection and respond to the then a “Drop files” prompt which offers a choice to copy or move the selected items.

    Copy To and Move To: To copy/move files to a folder to be selected during the process; select items, open menu, tap ]Copy To or Move To, navigate to location, tap OK.

    Some long file operations can be paused using the play/pause button in the task status window. Also, from there the task can be canceled or sent to background.

    Delete options. There are several delete methods, the visibility of which may be context sensitive, and MiXplorer has a native "recycle/trash" feature which can be enabled in Settings - More Settings - Undo.

    Normal: Deletes file “normally”. As is the case with file deletions (not Recycle or Trash) in other OS, the deletion is non-reversible but the raw data may persist until incidentally written over by other system activity.

    Trash: Similar to Recycle or Trash bins on desktops. The locations (drives/root paths) where “Trash” functions may very across ROMs and devices. When "Undo" is enabled as described above the following should occur:

    - Deleted items are placed in hidden folders named .recycle at the root of each drive. Don't delete those manually unless you are not using the "Undo" feature.

    - In the main menu there is an item called "Undo" which shows a list of available undo items. Long press on an item in that list to see the specific files that can be restored. Short press to restore that item/group of items.

    - Menu > Undo > "Remove all"; will delete all the .recycle folders and their contents from all drives (if they exist). Also nota bene: only do this if you are sure you wont need to restore anything). Any time you "Trash" something when "Undo" is enabled the .recycle folder for that drive will be recreated. If you've already disabled "Undo" in settings and still have leftover material in the .recycle folders, those folders can be deleted manually (requires "Show hidden")

    - In some cases you may be able to recover items manually from the .recycle folders.

    - If the trash cannot be emptied, try the following: Main Menu > Undo > Remove all, or Settings > More Settings > deselect Undo. As with manually deleting the contents of the trash/recycle folder, make sure you dont need anything from there before doing this.

    Shredder: Destroys files before deleting them. Only available for certain locations. May take longer for larger selections. Deletion by this method is non-reversible and leaves minimal if any recoverable data on the drive.

    Batch Delete: When you try to delete a folder as "Normal", it also takes time to clean up database, removing thumbnails, etc... . You can use "Batch Delete" to remove that folder as fast as possible.

    ----------------------------------------------
    Bug Reporting:
    Please report bugs in the primary MiXplorer thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1523691.

    Bug reports should come from the newest beta version of the app. If you notice a bug in the newest release version then check the newest beta. If it also occurs in the beta then log it from there.

    Bug reports should include. details about your device (Android version, ROM version, Root status, SU method, MiXplorer version) as well as a step by step description of how to reproduce the issue and a log taken while the issue was reproduced.

    ----------------------------------------------
    MiXplorer's Built-in Logging:


    Enable MiXplorer logging
    : Settings . More settings . Logging (enable)

    MiXplorer has a native logging feature. If logging is enabled (as it is by default) then the most efficient and the recommended way to do it is the following:

    - After crash or after experiencing issue,
    - Open MiXplorer
    - 3-dots menu
    - Send log.

    If you have disabled logging in the past, or you if are diagnosing more complicated issues or if you will be reviewing the logs yourself before sending. Here is a manual method that some people use:

    - Enable MiXplorer logging.
    - Close MiXplorer.
    - Open MiXplorer.
    - Reproduce the issue.
    - Close MiXplorer.
    - The logs should be in /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.mixplorer/cache/log/ (The path may vary slightly depending on ROM).
    - Use alternative file manager (just for this ;)) to get most recent log in folder.
    - If using MiXplorer to get the log manually, then make sure to get the log for the previous MiXplorer session rather than the one for the current session.

    Testing and Logging Notes:

    - Reproduce and log issues in a new session of MiXplorer that was started after logging has been enabled. In other words: Enable logging, then close MiXplorer, then start MiXplorer to reproduce the issue and send the log. A new log is created each time you open MiXplorer. Note: - In some cases it is recommended to test the issue in a clean installation of MiXplorer (after uninstalling MiX then reinstalling it).

    - The MiXplorer log directory will not appear until MiXplorer logging has been enabled at least once since last new installation of MiXplorer. Also, if MiXplorer is uninstalled the log folder will be deleted, so if you are getting logs manually during repeated tests remember to do so before next uninstall.

    - Before sharing logs it is a good practice to review them for information that you don’t want to share, and to delete that information or replace it with an obvious label, eg <thing x deleted>. To each their own about what to delete, but reviewing logs with privacy in mind before sending is prudent.

    - For logging more complex issues, or certain types of FCs where native app logging does not catch the error, a full system log (logcat) may be needed. The app "MatLog" (formerly "CatLog") from Play Store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pluscubed.matlog&hl=en can be used to capture logcats on the device. If an issue is causing reboots then the log might have to be taken from a USB connection on a computer via ADB.

    - When you share the log, also share the following:

    1) Full details of the device including: Android version, ROM version and variant, Root status, SU status, busybox status.
    2) A detailed description about how to reproduce the error when logging so others may try to reproduce it.
