Recognize phone

Post by *bcorsale » 2019-03-28, 14:42 UTC

Is there a way to have total commander see my android phone when it is connected to my computer? I have Win-7 installed on my PC.

1. Connect your phone
2. On the phone, switch mode from charging to file transfer or MTP
3. Press Alt+F1 or Alt+F2 in Total Commander to see / access your phone

Maybe this Topic should be made sticky? - the question pops up ever so often...

No sticky topic - better to have MTP Devices in drive list or/and drive buttons.

That's exactly what Ghisler explained, isn't it?

This is what I want: https://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/m4wg-3-dee0.png

I know the mtp devices are not drives, but maybe the drive list and the drive bar can become a "mixed-zone".

Edit: ahh, ok, in drive list (drop down) there are MTP devices. that was not possible in the past .. v8.?

I know that the drive bar doesn't show such devices but the drive list already does - just like Ghisler explained.

Could you please provide another screenshot, with MTP devices now, for further reference on similar question?

The drive bar doesn't provide them because there is no room to show their full name. In the drive dropdown list, TC shows a pseudo drive letter for using as a hotkey, and the actual device name to the right.

Yes of course. But for the next 3 weeks I do not have access to my TC.
