    I would like to set a short cut for weather and hotmail. How do I do that?

    I want to just scroll to the left or right from the home screen to weather or hotmail instead of going to the menu.

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    I'm assuming you have an app for both, just go to your app menu and press and hold weather/hotmail your wallpaper should then be displayed and drag the icon to the screen you want to place it on... don't forget to press thanks :)

    What I mean is be able to go to it by just switching to a different page. Example: from home screen to the right the hotmail will already be displayed.

    I understand what you are trying to accomplish but I don't know of a way to do this. you have the text file saved to your sd card correct?

    there are a few things I can think of that might work but have not ever tried them

    save as an image file and use desktop visualizer or a photo frame type app

    try one of the document viewers in the market...one may have a widget

    if using sense use htc mail add that widget to the screen you want it displayed on and just leave it always on that email

    I can think of half a dozen ways to create a shortcut to your file...but not many to display the file the way i understand you want to
