    I have some simple questions that need answers:

    1. How do I make a short-cut icon for a specific website on my home page?


    2. Is the folder structure fixed? I have many audio books, and I'd rather
    have a separate folder for them instead of loading them into the music
    folder. Same for photos, and videos. Can separate folders be made and
    would the correct app open when a file in one of these folders was
    selected?

    3. What is the procedure for downloading a flash video file from a website?
    And, where would it be stored?

    4. Do I need to get the latest Flash from the market, or is it already pre-installed?


    5. Is there a peer to peer app in the market like MP3Rocket for windows?

    It's hard to belive that this post has been viewed by 88 people, and not one question has received a reply.

    The app is ES File Explorer, and it is on the Android Market--free, of course.

    Thanks for your reply. It was very helpful.
    I sort of stumbled into the answer to # 1. by trial and error.
    And, I have already downloaded ES File Explore, Astro and File Manager HD from the market. I'm sure one will create new folders.

    But, the question remains, will the various music players search all the new folders that have been created on the internal memory
    and\or the external microSD card or USB jump drive?

    My media sharing server pulls all music, pics, and videos from the external drive when I open clearfi or videos apps. Make sure the service is turned on and that the media type you want to share is selected. Mine was off by default.
