    search of forums came up empty. Is there a way to rearrange shortcuts etc when added to a folder. I put a bunch of "QuickDials" in a folder but want to arrange them a specific way, when I hold down on one it takes the icon out of the folder to the Home screen and nothing in the menu, can't seem to figure it out . . .

    I thought there had to be an easier way, my home screens are pretty full so difficult to pull these out but thanks . . .

    Try renaming one of the shortcuts and seeing if that effects its location, (hoping by changing the modified date/time if that would be the same as last added)

    Good thought but how do I rename the shortcut? As far as I can tell I have very little options to adjust/change shortcut options

    I have searched through the forums but have been unable to find an answer. When I use the stock home screen and create a folder where does it exist on the device. The thing that I would like to do is re-use the direct dial and direction shortcuts in other home screens.

    Yeah I guess. I would like to save the copy of the folder on my SD card and try to use the shortcuts. I guess I want to look under the hood.

    Thanks, though shortsighted, you can rename a folder for example, but I don't think you can change the name of a shortcut itself.

    I was having a Win 7 moment. Forgive me.
