Method 2:

first of all I would like to tell you that there is no such File Explorer App available for a stock Android, as we have seen on Xiaomi’s devices powered by MIUI, I'm not saying that there is nothing like File Explorer on Mi A1 device but capabilities are limited on it.

So to enable File Manager on Xiaomi Mi A1 device just follow the steps shown below.

Download an app called- Shortcut maker for documentsUI

Now just tap on open to open that app

Now it will show you a screen to rename your file manager app, by default it gives File Explorer and yellow color traditional File Manager icon which you can also modify to your own color as you like.

After that just click on create shortcut, and it will create a file explorer shortcut on your device screen

now you have to go to  your screen and you will find that there are two File Explorer apps,  so I would like to tell you that one file explorer is the actual file explorer app and the second one is just that app which you have downloaded Earlier,
Now just uninstall that app and use your file manager without any issues, you can cut, copy, paste and delete files from this file manager shortcut.

So you have just created File Manager shortcut on your Xiaomi Mi A1 device, but if you are not happy with the functionality of this app you could download any third party File Explorer App like ES File Explorer or any other File Manager app on your Mi A1 device.
