    Quick Access shortcut to folder on Android phone doesn't work


    I added a directory from my Android phone to the Windows 'Quick Access' area but when I disconnect my phone and reconnect it again, that shortcut no longer works. I'd much prefer if it did.

  2. Rename pinned items in Windows Explorer? (Quick Access)

    The best work-around I can find is creating a "Jobs" folder that's pinned to quick access. I can then create shortcuts in this "Jobs" folder and rename these shortcuts. It's one more click to get into the "Jobs" folder from quick access but better than
    having a bunch of folders with the same name (different paths) in my quick access.

    I just do not understand why they changed this functionality in Win10!

    Nokia X6 - Moving a File to the main screen menu

    It doesn't work the way you seem to be suggesting, within the menus you can create folders to house icons to help you to organise the menus as you'd like them, but a folder in the menu structure is not a physical folder on the drive; and you can't get file
    folders to appear in the menus.



    The easiest option is to set the homescreen to have the shortcut bar visible, and edit the content of the shortcut bar to include Video Centre, that would give you quick access to all videos wherever they are stored in the phone.
