    I want to use an mp3 as a custom ringtone, so I know I need to move it to my ringtones folder. I got it onto my phone using Google Drive, so it's currently in my downloads folder. I'm trying to move it to the ringtones folder using a file manager app that I saw recommended in another tech support program, but every time I select the mp3, rather than showing me any options for moving it or copying it it just starts playing the mp3. The app is just called File Manager and it's by ASUS.

    Welcome to the forum. What file manager are you using?

    Try doing a long press on the mp3 instead of just tapping it. A long press is where you hold your finger down for a second or two. Some apps like this will allow you to select something for moving, copying, etc. with a long press, but just open the file when you tap quickly.
