    Default Help with Downloaded Files?

    Hi again,

    I am running ICS on my new A200 and am very new to the android platform.

    I have another very basic question. Thanks for your patience with a newbie.

    When I open my emails and click on any attachments... such as a pdf document, they end up in a folder called downloads. I have found the "downloads" app and moved it to my home screen. I can open it and view all of the files in the folder but. How can I move these files out of the "download" folder and then put them in a different folder. Since these really are not apps I can't seem to move them around and organize them in any way.

    I understand how to use astro to create the other folder. I can see how to use astro to move the pdf files from the download folder to the new folder, but I can't figure out how to put the new folder on my home screen.

    Thanks for your help.

    I figured it out. I needed to use the "Astro" widget instead of the app which then prompts me for a mount point rather than just opening up the file manager.

    Once I get some basic file management skills down, I think I will really enjoy this new tablet.

    Sorry for the newbie questions.

    Glad you figured it out. This will be useful to me as well.

    I don't see how to move files to the home page using astro. Where or rather what folder do you move the files to?

    Thanks for your help.
