    i'm trying to figure out how to take a folder on my external drive and make a shortcut to it on my homescreen with ice cream sandwich

    used to be able to just long press the screen and create shortcut, but now long press just shows me wallpaper setting.

    how can i create a folder shortcut on my bionic desktop?

    thanks

    Unfortunatly you cannot do this with the stock file manager. If rooted use root explorer. If not rooted use Astro file. Both will give you an option to add to home screen.
