Google launched a few months ago its own file manager, Files Go. An application that allows us to save space on our phone and get rid of everything that is not relevant or everything that bothers on the mobile and does not contribute anything. It allows us to organize and clean the entire phone. Now, Google has updated the manager and allows us to back up in Google Drive.
One of our biggest concerns when we have a phone in our hands is the amount of information in it that we fear losing. Photographs, videos, contacts and even important messages that we want to keep … The most advisable thing is to make backups always and now Google makes it easier than ever with Files Go.
Google has updated Files Go with new improvements. Among others, the possibility of making a backup of any file in Google Drive from the menu of the application. A small change very useful for day to day.
To make a backup you will have to select the file you want to save or the files. Once selected click on the “Create backup in Google Drive” option in the drop-down menu that will appear on the screen. Simply select this option and click on “accept” to start the process in Google Drive. You will therefore need to have Google Drive installed on your mobile phone and, of course, have an account associated with this service.
The copy will be automatically saved in Google Drive and once the files have been uploaded you just have to go to the application and organize everything as you want. Change the names of the folders, add new folders, move files … So you will have everything safe and available in the cloud even if your mobile phone is stolen, it is broken, you lose it or even if you want to change the phone and you want it to be easier to move it to a new one.
In addition to the backup of your files, some time ago we told you how to make a backup of your WhatsApp conversations so that they are also saved in Google Drive and are always safe.
Either because you want to disconnect or because you are going to lend your phone to someone, maybe you want to deactivate the emergent notifications. Almost all applications send us notifications of all kinds and with the latest versions of Android it is easier to choose what appears and what does not. But if you want to disable the emergent notifications, we tell you how to do it.
The current notifications are better than we had a while ago and even allow us to respond without opening the app, directly from the notification. But if you do not like them and you want to deactivate them, you can do it.
As we say, you can deactivate the notifications of each application from Settings> Applications. Each of them has a “Notifications” section that you can activate or deactivate. If you do not want the stores to bother you on a Saturday morning or Glovo or Just Eat alerts, this is a good option.
But if you want to see notifications but not the box on the top of the phone that bothers when you see something or that appears when you borrowed the phone, you can also uninstall from your mobile phone. Although, yes, you will need to have a computer at hand.
As they tell from Andro4All, install the ADB drivers from Google on your computer. When you already have a folder called platform tolos installed in the ‘Program Files’ hard drive folder, you can start configuring notifications.
As explained by the aforementioned medium, just go to the mentioned folder (Platform Tools), right click and open a command window in which you must write: ADB Devices. A pop-up window that you have to accept appears, type the command ” adb Shell settings set global heads_up_notifications_enabled 0 ” and your mobile phone would be ready.
Once followed step by step this process will have disabled the notification banners. It is expensive and it is not worth it to do it for just a little while, but if you want to have it forever. Once you want to get back to having pop-up notifications, you just have to follow the same process but change the final ‘0’ to a ‘1’ and they will be activated again.
If you want to turn them off only from WhatsApp it ‘s much easier because you’ll just have to go to the app’s settings. You can choose to have pop-up notifications appear when the screen is on, always, when the screen is off or never. A very useful feature if this is the application you want to control and do not care so much about the others installed on your mobile.
