I have a folder on my SD card that I regularly access to open documents of different types.

Is it possible to have a link on the home screen that opens the contents of this folder, e.g. using a File Manager application?

Currently I'm using the Adao File Manager to open the folder, but every time I have to select SD Card and Folder to get there.

The answers to How do I copy pictures onto a folder on the home screen? provide a couple methods of creating shortcuts (it requires another file manager).

As well, the Root Explorer file manager allows you to set the default path when it opens; you could set it to the path of this folder, so you wouldn't need to browse to it.
