    Welcome to the forum :)

    Which bit of the internal storage do you want to access, and where do you want to access them from (phone or computer)? The /sdcard partition you should be able to access with any file manager. Accessing it via a computer is limited on most devices to MTP (rather than USB mass storage) but should be doable out of the box via Windows (as MTP is a micrsoft protocol), with a little extra software on other platforms.

    Other bits of the internal storage will need root to access them.

    I want to know the answer for the same problem. Plus, does rooting is compulsory in this method or there is another way to do it without rooting.

    As Hadron said, root is mandatory.

    Essentially, you're all looking to access the /data partition.

    Rooting steps vary by make and model - the front page of our forum lists the phones we have members supporting - and for each phone forum, inside is an All Things Root subforum.

    If there's a known root for your phone, you'll find it there. :)

    You can use a file explorer with root support to access your internal storage - X-plore, from the Play Store, it's a very good choice.
