What is in the tools folder on the home screen?
Robinns

On the Android Mini there is a Tools folder on the home screen. It was when I purchased this as a new cell phone. This folder is now missing and I am trying to recreate this folder. I remember that Settings and Calculator where in this Tools folder, but I can't remember what other tools were in this folder. Does anyone know? Thanks.

Ribinns, the settings are a breeze to access. Quick Settings is located when swiping down from the top of the screen. Was this folder located in your All Apps section of your home screen?

Robinns,


Having quick access to your important settings and tools can definitely be a help. Have there been any recent updates to the phone? It's possible that the option was removed. If you press and hold the home screen do you get the options to add Widgets?

I am able to add Widgets. Just wondering what other widgets to add, in addition to Settings and Calculator, for re-creating the Tools folder. Thanks.

We want to make sure you're able to use all the settings on your phone Robinns. You can add folders to your home screen. Are you looking for the quick settings? If so, you can swipe the bar at the top to access those menu options.
