    Default App Organizing Tip using Folders

    Here are a couple of ways I organize my homescreens.

    1. I use Folders to contain app shortcuts. Permits organizing apps by function & fewer icons on a desktop.
    One of my desktop screens has only Folders ... no individual apps.
    2. You can put a Folder in the Favorites tray. That permits you to have MANY apps in the Favorites tray!
    I have a Folder in my Favorites tray called Tools...available from all my desktop screens.
    Tools folder currently contains icons for : X-plore, Power Toggles, Play Store, Speedtest, Equalizer, Downloads, MalwareByte, WatchDog, CleanMaster, Device Manager, Fing, Settings, 1 Tap Boost
    3. I like Evernote. I create note shortcuts for the desktop and place them in a desktop Folder called Notes.
    I get easy access to my most used notes.
    4. I like QuickPic for photos. It has a Link to Desktop feature. You can create a desktop link to a folder of photos. See Settings menu when viewing a folder of photos. Easy access to your favorite photos...in my case, shots of my grandson!

    5. I prefer X-Plore File Manager. It has an "Add Shortcut" widget. You can create desktop shortcuts for any SDcard folder.
    6. MY Folder. I put several desktop shortcuts into a folder named "MY". The MY folder contains shortcuts to several SDcard folders such as Downloads, Screenshots, My Photo Backup, My Documents, My PDF Files, DCIM/Camera, etc. Gives me easy access to X-Plore to show folder contents.

    Good tips. I would also add that you can create a folder of Direct Dial widgets, which can then be your Favorite Contacts folder. This can be in lieu of a Speed Dial function.

    I use the SpeedDial widget as one of my homescreens. I have 9 dialpads...configured with text only, no graphics. A nice clean look.
