Hi all,

Hopefully someone can solve my problem. We've had our tablet for a couple of months now, I've found that you can add a folder to the desktop/main screen but I can't for the life of me figure out how to put anything in it?! I want to put a folder of photos there so that I dont have to go to 'my files' and browse to it. Am I missing something really obvious?

Thanks.

Using your Files App identify both your new desktop folder and the folder where you transferred your photo's on to your Tab........and then Copy & Paste them into your desktop folder....

Restart your Tab to ensure that the new location is scanned for content...

You may also like to try ES File Explorer which can be more intuitive than the stock Files App, and which also enables you to copy files from shared folders on network computers too.......
