This app allows you to create shortcut to DocumentsUI (default native Android File Explorer) for Android 7.0 Nougat. This app will also work on Android 8.0 but without icon and name customizations.
On Android 7.0 you can customize name and color of the shortcut icon.
I tested it with Google Pixel phone and Google Pixel C tablet and it works great.
After you create your shortcut, you can uninstall this app.
On August 28, 2017 I added support for android 8.0 (Oreo).
If you are on Android 8.0, you won't be able to customize the icon appearance - instead, this app will be your "shortcut" to the default (embedded) file explorer. The app will detect if you are on Android 8.0 and then it will automatically launch default (embedded) file explorer and close itself.
Please leave a review or rating if you like this app. Thanks.
