Nokia N8: How To Use The File Manager
With 16GB of integrated storage, and more if you add a microSD card, keeping track of your files on a Nokia N8 can prove a little tricky. Thankfully, there’s an integrated file manager, and it’s also easy to search for photographs, videos and music. Join us after the cut for more…
If you’ve copied a file to your Nokia N8, you’ll be wanting to know how to find it once it’s on the phone. The easiest way is to add a file manager widget to your home screen.
Simply add a shortcuts bar to an empty section of one of your Nokia N8′s home screens – check out our Nokia N8 Ultimate User Guide to find out how – and then select Application and File Manager from the settings.
File Manager appears as a little filing cabinet icon, and is easy to use. It shows you exactly how much space you have left on your Nokia N8, and there’s also a backup contacts option.
Tap one of the different types of memory – from Phone Memory, to Mass Memory, to Memory Card – and you’ll be able to see all the different folders and files. It makes sense to keep track of which folder you put files in when copying them across from your computer – as it’s a lot easier to find them later.
If you’ve copied over photographs, music or videos, it’s easy to track them down using the Photo, Music and Video applications. You’ll find these on the main menu. Simply click Photos, and then All to search through all your photographs, and you can search through Captured, Last watched and Other video clips when looking for movies. Music Player is slightly different – automatically incorporating your music into an easy to use app.
