    Is there a way to make a shortcut on homescreen to a photo folder/album? I have three shortcut apps, but none will give me a shortcut to a photo album. Only one photo

    No, it says folder, but doesnt work. And that means both apps. I contacted developer and said cant make shortcut of folder

    When you go into to select folder it opens folder and only allows one to pic a file.

    Shortcut creator definitely can make a shortcut to a FOLDER and show all the photos within that folder, I know that because I use the app all the time for photos,music and files plus contacts and applications

    Open shortcut creator.
    Shortcut type is folder.
    Next you get the option to browse to the folder you want and select a pic within the folder.
    Next you can select the icon that you want, I just leave the default. Jpg icon.
    Then tap create shortcut.

    That should create a short cut on your homescreen.

    Ok so selecting one photo will allow the shortcut to whole folder?

    Followed procedure, and when I go to open shortcut, it just gives me swirling circle and then it closes???

    Also icon I choose doesnt show

    In order to give you the instructions, I just created a shortcut to a folder of pictures on my sd card. And it works and I have the latest shortcut creator update.
    Give it a go

    You can make a folder to Device but SDCard does not work.

    Since OS10.2 shortcut to sd card folder doesn't work. Either this is a bug in OS10.2+ or BlackBerry just don't allow this.

    Have not tried on OS10.3 yet.

    FWIW, I tried creating a shortcut to a folder on SD card on 10.3 and it doesn't work either.

    This is for Toysoft's app.

    With Toysoft's app, once you open a folder, just select a file. The shortcut will be made for the folder. And, yeah, it's limited to device folders.

    That's weird because I think I'm running 10.2.1.2141, but I'm on a Z30. I was able to pin both device & SD folders for my BlackBerry Q10 in the past though (but I'm not sure on the software version).

    I also don't get what you mean "But is there a way to make folder on device"?
    Are you asking how to create a new folder using the phone's storage (and not the SD card)? If so you open file manager, open a folder (examples: camera folder, music folder, documents folder, voice folder, etc) and then hit the 3 dots on the right hand side. It gives you the option to add a folder.

    As far as pinning a folder from either the SD card and/or device, "Docu Shortcut" won't let you select a folder. You can pin the folder, but you do it by going in the folder you want, select a file in that folder, and it associates that file with the folder. So if you're in pictures folder and you have a sub-folder titled "Wallpapers", just click on a wallpaper file and it will pin the Wallpaper folder.

    What if I want to add a new folder on device, and not inside a folder already there?

    Yes I have tried the select a photo in the apps to make a folder shortcut, as I stated above. But when I go to open the shortcut made, it doesnt open anything.

    I've found that the only way to add a folder to the root of the device (which I think you're referring to) is to do so from your PC on the mapped drive when connected via USB.
