    Thanks to these forums I downloaded es file explorer to my nexus 7 and am very pleased with it.
    I accidentally went to the right hand menu and clicked send.
    My es explorer was open on my phone and it gave me the option to send files to it.
    Didn't know it could do that.
    Is it possible to set it up so it sends to my PC also?
    If so how do I set it up please?

    Set up a shared folder on your pc
    There is a option in ES Explorer to connect to lan
    Make sure both your phone and computer are connected to the same home network
    Open ES explorer browse to the file you want to move, then cut/copy/paste it to your shared folder, you can then move it on your pc wherever you want..

    I use ES file explorer all the time to send files to and from this laptop via Bluetooth.You just need to add your Mobile device to the PC bluetooth system.

    This thread has some general info if you have problems with the PC's bluetooth stack,


    I don't even have to use the Bluetooth Tab in ES.Once you have set up the BT on the PC here's my procedure.
    Switch on Bluetooth on PC
    Long press on the file I want to send to the PC in ES and scroll down the list to,"Share" and once chosen then choose Bluetooth and just follow through :)

    HTH :)

    Tried that but no luck Works fine between my nexus 4 and 7 But as soon as I switch the pc on now wont work with them either
    Have to switch it off again.

    You can get really cheap USB Bluetooth dongles,

    usb bluetooth dongle | eBay

    My main PC is bit old and running WinXP pro so I added one of these.You just need to make sure it's for your O/S e.g winxp or Win7/8 etc :)

    This Lenovo has Bluetooth as standard :)

    I didn't know about this so I just set mine up over WiFi using XP Pro and Ice Cream Sandwich on a Motorola Atrix 2; instant access.
