    How can I create a shortcut to a Settings submenu?

    I know you can create shortcuts to the main Settings menus (battery use, bluetooth settings, etc.) by just long-pressing the screen -> Shortcuts, but I need to create a shortcut to a submenu (specifically Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> Mobile Networks -> Network Mode)

    This is on a Droid 2 Global. Anyone know how I can do this? I have LauncherPro and I know you can make shortcuts with it but programming those shortcuts seems pretty complicated.

    Long press the screen and choose shortcuts and then activities. It will take a while but it will load up a long list, from there scroll down to settings and press on it. It will expand it and there will be a huge list of settings sub menus. You just have to dig around and find the one you need. Let me know if that doesn't make sense.

    Sooo I'm still having a little trouble. I can't seem to find the correct item on the list. I took a screenshot of all the available options under "Settings" and I tried the ones that looked most plausible (bandmode, Manage Networks, SIM network lock settings) to no avail.

    Here's a screenshot I took of all the available options under "Settings" in the LauncherPro Activities menu:


    And here is a screenshot of the setting I want the shortcut to:


    If you have any ideas I'd really appreciate it!

    I'll look into it but I have a question for you.

    What did you use to compile all of those screen shots in the first pic?

    Thanks man, much appreciated

    For the pic I just used Photoshop...opened one screenshot, multiplied the canvas width by 6, height by 2, and just pasted the rest in.

    I can't seem to find the menu you have displayed. It could be because I have a d2 so a d1 user might be able to give you better assistance.

    Franklin, with respect, in the future could you offer more of a solution to an OP's question than what you normally post. It would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.
