    Sometimes I spend time changing icons--just because it's fun. :) I'll only post one category, media:

    Looking good! Fun, huh?

    I'm really careful about making a backup before I start mucking around too much with its settings. I think you're good about that, too, right? It's comforting knowing I won't lose my settings if I muck up! :eek:

    Can you be more specific? What folder and can we just put them using a File explorer? What format do the fonts need to be in?

    Aha. I found it: "You can use any TTF/OTF font you want. Create a sub-directory called userFonts in your AdwUserData directory, then copy the desired font(s) to userFonts,"

    Hi VickiB, and welcome to Android Forums! I'm glad you saw my post where I'd given the font instructions.
    There are many ways to accomplish the end result, but since you're asking how I do it, here goes:

    I use various tools [such as file managers] on my Android devices to connect to my Linux network.

    All the computers are on the same Wi-Fi network as the Android devices. Since I've set up networking on the computers, my devices see them and can access their files just as if the files were on the device.

    So, for example, using one of my file managers, Explorer on my phone, I'm able to see and navigate all internal and external drives on all of my computers:

    The screenshot shows the contents of my Compaq desktop computer; you can kind of see that it's its tab I'm on, in the row of names near the top. You can also see some of my other computers' names on the other tabs.

    No cords/wires involved, just fast, easy access to all my files. :)
