I've come to love Tasker. It's horribly unintuitive, but every new thing which I learn how to make it do, once I have it down, opens up whole new dimensions of possibilities which once required multiple apps and commercial widgets. But now there are a couple of contexts which I had not tried until recently, thinking they should be relatively easy, but what seems the most likely solution isn't working for me. There's the State context for when your phone is placed in the dock (there are the options for "car dock", "desk", or "any", and how it would know the difference is a mystery to me, but I selected "any". The action I chose was to open "Desk Clock", and when it failed to do that, I tried other apps which I'm familiar with. The context was State->Docked->Any, and the action was App->Load App->(app). I have Froyo, if that makes any difference, otherwise, why would this context fail when my phone is plugged into any charging dock? EDIT: The following question really comes down to this: Is there any way to make Tasker, with the action Media->Ringtone, and "Sound" dialogue change your ringtone when you punch in the path to wherever you have a track stored? I would rather choose my ringtones this way than the Long-Press which takes you to a menu which ignores all but one folder. I have tried this without success, and am wondering if it is at all possible, perhaps with some syntactical framing which I may have overlooked (tried quotes, which didn't work). Otherwise, is there no other way to open up your Ringtones options than to copy each track to your /system/media/audio/ringtones folder (or to a duplicate file structure on your sdcard if you don't have root)? This would be more than an annoying task, it would be a storage burden. Is there another trick which I haven't tried? Thanks to all who try to help. END EDIT Another idea which I tried this morning was to use Tasker for changing my ringtone. I selected State->Incoming Call, and then Media->Ringtone->Ringer. It seemed pretty straightforward up to this point, but then I was confronted with the Android ringtone menu. I hate few things more than the system policy which would force you to bulk up your SD card with full copies of every song which you may ever want to use as a ringtone just to see it appear on this menu. I decided that I didn't need to deal with this obnoxious menu, when I could make Tasker play a song as directed from my folder path instead. I used ES File Explorer to verify the path which I wanted to give Tasker, and then punched /sdcard/MUSIC/Led Zeppelin/Communication Breakdown.mp3 (an attempt at humor, hee hee) into the Sound box of the Ringtone dialogue. This song didn't play when I got a call later, so where (other than my musical taste) did I go wrong with this?
