How to share/copy files between Nox App Player and your computer

Share files between your computer and Nox is very easy. One thing you need to make sure is that you have root mode on in Nox App Player before transfer/copy files between Nox and your PC (see how). This tutorial is based on Nox version 3.1.0.

Copy files from your computer to Nox

Option 1:

1. Drag the file from your computer to Nox and drop it. The File Manager will show up. Click the Open XXX Folder button under the file sign that turns blue.
