    Well you are the one (amongst many) that decided to install an incomplete developer version (Bugs, Warts and all) of 8.1 - give them time dude, you are the guinea pigs and the MS test bed - I would only complain IF they release 8.1 officially without fixing it.
    Totally fair post.

    And exactly what I'm doing, but back on 8.0 at present, till things smoothen out with 8.1

    Really want MS to succeed. The things they have added in 8.1 ... really seem nice.

    Bugs are one thing, you shouldn't ship a buggy product, although there will always be edge cases you didn't catch in testing. But this post is about 'missing' features, or features you would like added and in that case I think it's great to ship early. Define the minimum viable product and get it out to users as early as you can. Then build on that, adding features in incremental, and frequent, releases. That way users have something early, you get good feedback on bugs and on what features users really need vs spending time building something that few people will really use. Microsoft is taking this approach with all of their software and services lately and, although there might be more room for improvement, I think they're doing a great job. This isn't the Microsoft of old.

    I never got the whole fuss about not having a file manager.
    Now that the official app is out, give me one good use you have been putting it to...

    I like files! I think it's awesome but there needs to be a way differentiate between the number of sub folders and the number of files. Unless I actually go into the folder I don't know if the numbers are referring to other sub folders or total files and that's slightly annoying.

    I use file managers with my partner. We produce music together. He's uses either his Mac or Android phone. I use Windows 7 or my Lumia 1520. We use OneDrive as it's available on all platforms and it's the easiest and fastest way for us to share files. With a file manager I can download files he send me anytime (also having it offline in case I have no cell signal) and put it somewhere specifically until I'm ready to either send it off to an artist or bring it to my laptop and go to work on the go.

    We've tried other cloud service and OneDrive beats them out. Which is amazing considering he's on a Mac and an Android.

    When I was on my iPhone it was a complete pain managing files with third party apps going from one app to another to do basic things. With the Lumia having it all built in. It's a real game changer.

    Because I want full fledged File manager,which can not only manage file but can handle them pretty well.

    I want a single app which can handles all files well.
    I think it will be more convenient but some users having a hard time in understanding this.

    Anyway it was expected since before file manager launched
    That time question was asked -why you need file manager?
    Now it's launched
    The question is
    Why you want to use that way their is separate app for that?

    Isn't this funny?

    I know MS will implement what we are asking but it will take time.

    a File Manager is a File Manager, even in Android you can't view images through file manager by pressing forward or backward selection (Samsung GS4).

    Android can't do that so, we don't need WP to do it either.

    Do anyone noticed that official file manager doesn't delete files but folders only.

    I have tons of pics. So I deleted a folder containing some pics through Files but it only deleted folder not pics.

    I've been using the Files App for a while now. All's good in it , except one thing.
    I cannot share any audio file to my WhatsApp contacts.
    I've done all the necessary things to be required , like creating a new folder in the pictures hub of the sd card/copying the audio file to that newly created folder/renaming the audio file to mp4., et al.
    But whenever I try attaching any audio file to my WhatsApp contacts , all the folders turn up EXCEPT THE NEWLY CREATED WhatsApp Audio one.
    Anyone please do help......!

    Just deleted pocket file manager. I couldn't delete 1 file (not saying multiple files) in trial version. But this Files does what I need- rename audio files (format) to share via WhatsApp -love new update with new UI

    How do you share via whatsapp ? I went to a mp3 file and hit share and whatsapp wasn't listed

    But friends

    It's a pretty basic one. They must add this with initial release.
    It makes difficult to watch multiple images.
    But, man !! There is something called photo viewer!! This thing is just for browsing photos, you can try it!!
