Tutorial: Assign HTC Albums a default folder

If you want HTC Albums to open up to a certain directory every time , all you need to do is edit the shortcut file in a word document . You may either use Resco Explorer to open the .lnk file found in the start menu , or total commander . If you wish to do it on your computer just copy the "Albums.lnk" file to your SD card or Desktop computer then right click and click open with then select notepad .

This is what your shortcut should look like once opened in a Text editor:

Code:
24#"Windows/HTCAlbum.exe" "\My Documents\My Pictures"
Your number may be different . just make sure the first string of characters is navigating to the HTCAlbum.exe file . the second string of characters is the directory for which you wish to open . I call it the default directory .

Any questions feel free to ask !

Well on the Photos and Videos Tab in Manila you can select a favorite to always show first when you go to that tab. You click on the left softkey Album then click the left softkey Albums to select the one you want then click on the right softkey Menu and select Set As Favorite.

I don't know if that's what you are asking for?

Are you referring to Titanium?

thanks for the reply horndoctor . im refering to sense and i know about setting the "favourite" folder however when you tap "albums" in the start menu i want it to default to "My Pictures" instead of showing every image on the device and memory card . its quite annoying .

Oh, well I think you could make yourself a new link using a link creator and put it in the Windows/Start Menu folder then find the My Pictures exe and link the new link to it so when you click on it My Pictures opens.

Maybe...

Re: HTC Albums default folder

I just looked thru HKLM and HKCU in the registry for ya and couldn't find anything associated with the default location.. only thing in there is "favorites" and which is what horndoc mentioned. Doesn't look like there's an easy way to make htc album open to a designated loation..

If you're looking to create a shortcut to My Pictures, Total Commander can make that very easy for ya. Using TC navigate to My Pictures and go up a folder..ex: if your My Pictures folder is located in My Documents/My Pictures, you want to be in My Documents. Now highlight(click on) my pictures, click "File"(bottom right), then select ">>>>>", and finally "create shortcut". Click on "tree", navigate to Windows/Start Menu/Programs, and hit ok to send it. There should now be a shortcut in your start menu to access My Pictures.. This is how I created a shortcut to my games located on SD.. Hope this helps

Re: HTC Albums default folder

Try putting a shortcut to a specific picture in my pictures on the start screen. So that way if HTC ALBUM is the default picture viewer it will open to that and then display all the pics in that folder only. Works for me all the time when I look at my folder of Latinas

No problem amigo, that's what we're here for. Glad you figured it out and got it working the way you wanted!! Maybe you should edit the first post and turn this thread into a tutorial on how you did it.. That way any future members who may want to make the changes can easily do it..
