Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 : how to run File Manager ?

2019-03-21, 9:21 AM

FYI - For anyone coming across this issue in the future.


Possibly owing to my new Tab 4 10 having already been ready to upgrade to Oreo the day it arrived, it was not necessary to give permission to File Manager for Location or Phone services to fix this error on my Tab. They are both still there, but once I gave permission to Storage everything worked as it should.


Yeah, I'll probably get a better FM at some point, but since this is my first tablet with a larger purpose than entertainment and leisure, I have far more important tools and apps to get up and running, than a 3rd party FM. Sometimes you just need the knowledge to fix the glitches, and get the stock tools to do their job, so you can get on with the business of doing yours.

This did the trick. Why the default FM needs permissions to location and phone calls to run beats me.

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 : how to run Archive Manager?

2020-01-17, 0:39 AM

So, I've been downloading games and what not but I can't play them. Each time I try to click on my Archive Manager it always says "an error occured while running this archive" and I'm getting really annoyed.

Can anyone tell me how to fix it?

(I own a thinkpad!)
