    HTC Touch - Hidden Menu?

    Ok the other day I pick up my Touch, get it out of sleep mode, and when the screen comes on I see this menu I have never seen before. I must have accidentally clicked into it before setting down the Touch.

    This menu looked kinda like a shortcut menu in that it had a list of items like shut down the device, ringtone, and other things I cant remember now. It had the dark greay background reminicent of the how the Comm Manager would look...in fact really close to what the Comm Manager looks like.

    I believe (by looking at the menu bar at the top while in this menu app) it was called something like "Quick Menu" or "Quick Start". I have not been able to find any reference to this in Programs and/or Settings and thus have never been able to access this menu again. I am pulling out my hair trying to find out where this menu is! Anyone know what I am talking about? lol

    I remember that on my Blackjack (before I had an 8525 then tilt) pressing the power button once quickly brought up a "Quick List" with alot of things like shut down, etc.. Its probably just a windows mobile application (quicklist.exe?) that you somehow managed to execute that isnt usually available on your specific phone.

    Yah I would have thought it was something like a quick press of the power button (much like a SE w810 for example) that would bring up such a menu but that didn't work. It just toggles sleep mode on and off.

    I did a search for a file that has anything to do with "quick" such as quicklist.exe and no file was found.

    Any other ideas?

    I think you're referring to the "Quick List" which for my CDMA touch comes pre-configured to launch on a long press of the end key. If you go to Start/Settings/System tab you can launch the "Long Press End Key" which gives you options.

    My default was to "Always display the Quick List", which I changed to automatically execute the "set vibrate/ringer".

    my Quick List is dark grey similar to comm. manager, but no blue for activity, and only one column of items like: Turn Airplane Mode on, Lock Device, Terminate Data Connection, Set Ringer, and Settings.

    good luck.

    It's call HTC Action Screen or something like that.

    Hold down the "END" button on your phone a few seconds and depending on how you set it up before, it should popup that menu. The default setup i think it will bring the phone into flight mode.

    yup u get it by holding the end button
    i set it so that by holding the end button, my phone goes into silent mode and out of it... more convenient for me that way

    u can set the button to different options as well, but limited to whats already in the quick access menu
