any way to create shortcut to a folder located in sd card ?
I don't think so but i could be wrong. If you download Astro from the marketplace you can access whatever is in any folder on the phone.
but i am looking at creating a shortcut rather then going through explorer.
i wondering if any apps out there that allow such process to be created
I'm not sure but I think an app called "Anycut" which could possible do it
it been a while but anyway ...
if you install ASTRO file manager , then you can add shortcut to files/folders at your home screen by : long press an empty slot on the home screen -> shortcut -> ASTRO and then you choose whatever you need .
That doesn't quite work. If you use astro after making the shortcut, or want to have multiple shortcuts to different paths then all the shortcuts you make point to where astro was used last.
I created a shortcut to /sdcard/ on my Captivate so hopefully you can do the same on your phone:
Go to your applications, locate 'MyFiles' and long press to add the icon to your screen.
Open it up to show the file folder system.
If you want to make a specific subfolder as the default home (think of /sdcard/ as root), select the subfolder you want then go to your Settings/Menu icon. Select 'More' then 'Settings'. Select the Home Directory option.
Hope that helps! Not sure if you can rename 'MyFiles' but at least you have a 'shortcut' to a folder you want.
Get "Linda Manager" from the marketplace, there is a fully-functional free version. Use it to browse the SD card and long-press on the folder you want; select the 'shortcut' option and you're done. Unlike Astro this works right for multiple shortcuts pointing to different folders.

Sorry for the so late answer, but I wanted the same thing and found out that es file explorer does the same thing as linda too..
