I have recently installed the Oziexplorer program on my Android tablet along with the OZie skin. All works fine with the exception that I can't seem to load the Places file.
Because of the skin I cannot access the original setup/ configuration files which I would normally do on the CE version.
My question is, is there a way of reverting to the original layout so I can access the relevant area or is there a trick to using the skin with the Android version that I just can't see.
I don't have this issue with the CE version as it has a button which allows me to bring back the original toolbar.

Thanks Richard

Hello

Doesn't pressing the first "button" on the left front of the actual unit (not the touch screen) bring up the main menu over the top of any "skin" you may have loaded?




If so press "Main Menu" - > "Operation" -> "General" -> "Load Page File (Landscape)" and select "skin" of choice.....or you can of course just load a Name Search File ...

"Main Menu" - > "Operation" -> "General" -> "Load Name Search File" without changing the skin (which probably wont help anyway).

Cheers

Greg,

No not in my case. I'm using a Galaxy Tab s and they have changed this button apparently. Mine brings up the open applications and task manager

mmm cant help then, if none of the "skin" buttons take you to the main menu or any of the units buttons you may have to uninstall the program and start again (shouldn't be too much of a drama). Though someone out there may know the secret ?

For long term solution would investigate changing or creating a new button using screen designer to avoid issue in future....I would also let the guys at OziExplorer know as it may require a rethink on default menu options/access.

Cheers
Greg

Greg,

Yes I think the only option I have is to reinstall.

I was hoping someone else had come across this before to save the hassle.
Thanks for your input.

Regards Richard

As Michelle mentioned below - the short answer is press and hold the app button for a few seconds and the menu will appear. This is a Samsung thing that is on the later devices.

In Thread 108682 David has provided a useful answer to someone else with the same tablet experiencing the same problem - apparently you just press and HOLD that button. But please refer to the link I've provided for more info. Hope this helps.
