I made a new tab because I got tired of the App tab filling up and taking up the whole screen area when selected. But when i moved the mpegplayer it wouldnt find its files and it wouldnt play them. My question is how do I change the path, if there is a way, maybe via the console, and I dont know much about Linux so please use simple terms;)

Well, I'm not sure if this'll help but... There are 2 steps to associate an app with a file type:

1. make sure the type is listed in /opt/QtPalmtop/etc/mime.types (a line saying "application/my-type myext")
2. make sure the application's .desktop file contains a line saying "MimeType=application/my-tipe"
3. reboot if you've made any changes

This goes for OpenZaurus; mime.types may be located elsewhere in your ROM so search around.

For moving apps between tabs & changing their icons, I highly recommend the Tab Setting app (included in 3.x ROM; can be downloaded from ZSI for other ROMs).

For editing an application's Mime type (.desktop file), I recommend Zaam from ZSI.
