    I've added some icons (png) files to a folder on the SD Card. They are visible in EStrong, but not to other applications.

    They only become available when i power on/off.

    Is there a way to make the available?

    - As i'm toying with many icon sets and generally playing, it's annoying having to reset the phone everytime to see anything.

    There must be a better way. I'm currently testing different icon sets online. So i save the PNG on the PC, go to Estrong on the phone, transfer the PNG to the phone. Go into Apps Orgraniser, change the icon, select AndExplorer (as the icons do not show in the directory i copy them to until a reboot), select the icon, then change the shortcut in LP to reflect the new change.

    It's so long-winded.

    If the icons would show in the directory without a reboot, i could just select Change Icon in LP and select it. Save me loadsa hassle.

    You know, i think you may be right. As i just found about this Launcher Pro Icons app. Some text said something i didn't understand, but says the above app does:

    " Plus, there is no need to fiddle with rescanning the SDCard after adding an icon"

    I'll give it a try now...

    You're a star! Thanks very much. Saved me a LOT of hassle. I'd never heard of this "SD Re-scanning" thing before.
