    Hi everyone I have just joined as I have just been given a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for my retirement present.

    I have a couple of questions Can I use windows explorer and a desktop explorer on it, and can anyone recommend a good free to use security software.

    Unless you obtain its source code and compile it to be available on Android, nope...

    There are a lot of file explorers available in the Playstore though... But Windows Explorer... Nope

    I use ES Explorer - recommended by other forum members - and have been very happy with it. More robust and (I think) easier to use than the native My Files. It's free at the play store (linked above) so give it a whirl!

    You'll love your Note!

    Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer are two different things, the first is a web browser and the other is a file system browser. Which one do you need? You can't use either on Android but there are native Android alternatives which are better (security wise and more..) than the original.

    Avast is a great antivirus software, it is a free app. You might like to try that, no commitments. As far as browsers go, you might want to give Dolphin browser or Puffin browsers a go. Both have a lot of great features and are easy to use.
