    Hi everyone,

    Just got the HTC Droid two days ago; it's one amazing piece of machinery!

    I'm new to the android OS, so I'm hoping some of the gurus here will be able to help...

    I want to know where (in the file system/ directory structure) does it put the new folders that you create (by holding a finger down on) the "desktop"? I've looked and looked online, but found nothing about it...

    TIA

    Easiest way to do this is to get a file manager like Linda or Astro, that is if the incredible doesn't come with one. Once you've installed the file manager do a search for the folder. You will see the folder and the path to where it is stored. And :welcome: to the forum. :)

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I actually have one of those installed (incidentally called "File Manager" :)) but it doesn't have a search function... I installed Aurora which is supposed to look for files too IINM, but it didn't find that either...

    Downloading Astro... will try that one in a minute.

    ...

    OK done.
    Well, that didn't find it either. (Though the app itself looks better than the File Manager, so I'm keeping it -- thanks for the tip!)
    I'm starting at the root (/) and the 'include directory names' option is checked... But it reports "nothing found"...

    Could it be that Android doesn't store those type of folders' names in plain text or something?
