It says it's making the folders, but nothing happens.'

Sorry, ChromeOS doesn't currently support write access to the SD card for Android apps. The Files app is a preinstalled app signed by Google, and therefore has higher privileges.

Moved to the Android forum.
Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

Is this still an issue? I'm thinking about buying a Chromebook, which would be my first Chromium experience. However, having full file system control via Total Commander is key to me, so this could be a deal breaker, I'm afraid.

I don't have a Chromebook, and the emulator in Android Studio still has this issue - but it's very old (Android 7.11).

Can someone with a real Chromebook test this, please?
