How do you turn Bluetooth on with fewer clicks?

Is there a way to launch bluetooth faster than programs, comm manager, bluetooth? Is there a way to pin a shortcut on the program menu at least?

Well, I just slide over to the Settings tab in TouchFlo 3D and then hit the Comm Manager and Bluetooth. Nothing faster that I know of.

Re: How do you turn Bluetooth on with fewer clicks?

If you can find an executable that will toggle bluetooth, you could create a shortcut to it and name it Long_Power.lnk and put it in the \Windows Directory. Then any time you press and hold the power button for a few seconds it would run that app. I did this an app that toggles vibrate/ringer.

A similar way would be to assign that app to the long send key press in the "Buttons" control panel.

One other way would be with a program like AE button plus. You could, for example, set the d-pad button to toggle bluetooth on/off when you press if for a few seconds. AE Button plus has the ability to do this without the need for an additional program to toggle it like I mentioned in the 2 methods above. I personally would prefer this method, but to each their own.

Re: How do you turn Bluetooth on with fewer clicks?

There's also the pBar program, that is really fast, and has every comm connection you need. It is handy to have as a short-cut in your today screen, and then launch it turn on/off radio, and close out of it. I haven't tested it on a VGA device, let alone the newer devices, so I would have no other programs running, so you don't loose any saved work.

yeah I installed it on my phone, disabled tf3d before I installed it, and it warns that it might remove customizations to tf3d... in my own experience I don't see sprint tv's tab in my tf3d anymore... so i believe that its the cause for that... so be careful...
