my Phone settings for notifications is set on factory's sound and now I can't find a option anywhere to change it and it driving me crazy I have a bunch of ringtones please help
Solved! Go to Solution.
When I open sounds and vibration, notification sound it gives me two options as the source for choosing a the default system wide notification sound,sec.sound picker and es file explorer. Below there are two settings, just once and always.
If I select es file explorer and select always it will set es file explorer as the default action or app when choosing a notification sound. It will no longer offer the option to use sec sound picker.
To bring back the option to choose sec sound picker or es file explorer. Open system settings, apps, scroll down to the es file explorer app and open it's settings menu. Scroll down to Set As Default and open it. On the new menu tap clear defaults.
All you need to do is find the app you selected and set to always and clear the defaults. The option to use the third party app you installed will appear again as an option.
Click on magnify glass
Click on Sounds and vibration
Scroll down to notification sound
It will say what the current tone is
List will pop-up
Pick a tone
If you have a ringtone app, you will get a choice of using SecSound picker or a ringtone app, I have Zedge. That's another thread
Pick a tone, that will be the tone for all notifications.
I prefer different tones for different apps
You should still be able to get to sounds and vibration from pulling down the notification shade, swipe down from top of phone, click on the gear icon top right corner, sounds and vibration will be right below connections, click on that, notifications will be right below ringtone, click on it and pick a tone. The ringtones you downloaded will not be there because when you download tones they automatically go into ringtone folder
