Share your menu layouts...
 
3 Attachment(s)
Well since everybody is busy updating to v20 and having to reinstall/configure most of their software, thought it would be interesting to compare how people setup their menus...

Attached are a few screenies showing my standby and root menu layout.
Really just curious to see how people setup/live with their phones ;)

Interesting, I generally do this:

New SMS and Contacts on the left and right selection keys
6 most used apps on the active standby
9 next most used in the menu
Everything else spread among 9 folders.

Also, I've noticed that if the root or subfolder has more than 5 icons, it jumps to the 'middle' position first, number 5 if you think of the grid view like:
123
456
789
I therefore put the one I use most in that position. If there are less than 5 it goes to the first one (top left) so in that instance I put it there.

God I sound so anal.

How do you get That http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/1127/root1hh6.png Meny icon?
Had it yesterday and then installed some crap and it dissapeard, redownloaded the firmware again today and made a factory reset of the phone so everything is normal now i think, but still same boring menu.
Is it the" New_structure_menu.sis " file you installed for this?
Tryed it too but looked the same..

oxfordmark 28-11-2007 11:24 AM

that icon appears to me after using rotate me for a while in landscape mode and returning to portrait. It kinda sucks because the icons in the menu itself become smaller and signal/battery metters are as large as in the standby

riverboat 28-11-2007 11:58 AM

I have made a folder with my name on it, and then move it up, so the that the first press on the menu takes me straight to that folder. Then whenever i install an app i'm gonna use i lot, the next thing i do is move that app to my shortcut folders

oxfordmark 28-11-2007 01:39 PM

I cant install that screen catcher thing cos im at work.. anyway, here is my menu

Shortcuts (Active Standby): Contacts, Message's, Opera, Clock, Gmail, G Maps

Left: Messaging Right: Messenger

Menu: Contacts, Mesaging, Log, Gallery, Calender, Clock, Messenger, G Maps, G Mail, Opera, Tools Folder, Applications Folder, Music, Call Man

In applications i made a folder called "Not used much" which has NGage, Web, Maps, M:Panel, Download, Search, My Nokia, T-Zone Plus

I moved App Manager to Tools

Calc moved to Office

Thats mine!

hari623 28-11-2007 02:03 PM

Have you tried searching this forum? (Obviously not) Anyway, if you use that wonderful button at the top, marked Search, you'll find a link to this thread, with full details -> CLICKY

I guess that's a restore from the last firmware, it'll keep your old menu setup.

davyjones 28-11-2007 03:26 PM

aright doesn't matter about the menu icon, dunoo how to get it back, using rotateMe but wont appear.
anyway am ok with a bit more space in the menu instead, but must say it looks kinda good

ut666 28-11-2007 03:27 PM

hari623:

Before upgrading, if you like your menu structure as it is. Do a back up of your settings. Then reload them into the phone. I hated not being able to move the better looking folder icons so i reverted back to my original menu with the bland folders.

Here's mine:

Anyways, here is my menu and home screen thingy:

I'm actually quite anal about my menu structure.lol.It has to be even at all time.Even within sub folders.And I try to have them arranged in a way so I can just press up,down,left or right to go to my most used apps.Oh and this is the Nseries4 theme.For whoever asked ut666.It's the only theme that I like besides the Default Nokia theme which I lost in the update!But I like this one much better anyway.

hellscream 11-01-2008 11:23 AM

Changed it up a bit.

I have the active standby, but if you notice i made a transparent background png file for my wallpaper as if i use a regular wallpaper it conflicts with the active standby text and gets difficult to read.

I couldn't live without active standby now, it's genius!



And HomieX, i love that theme and icon set, very nice indeed. Where you get that one from?
