    Is it possible to boot the EDGE so it goes straight to the list of games in the GAMES folder.
    At present it boots up to the main menu, I then have to select the Games icon, then have to select the Games folder to get to the list of games.
    On my Acekard2 I can get it to automatically boot to the Games folder, so can the EDGE do the same.

    there is a way. (this is what ive done)

    step 1. Move all the roms/saves from your games folder to the root of the card.

    step 2. right click the "EDGE" folder, and set it as "hidden"
    Do this for everything in the root of the card that you dont want to display on the EDGE OS

    when you boot up your EDGE, tap on the games button, and Tadaaa! only your games are listed. Its as if it boots from your games folder (even though it doesnt) =P

    Try it for yourself

    if you have to problem where you cant see the folders you've just made hidden.
    in any explorer window goto Tools>Folder Options > click the "view" tab > click "show hidden files and folders"

    thats great until you hit the LIMIT on number of files in the ROOT folder of 127 files read here

    REMEMBER that includes SAVE FILES and other data files!
