    My 17 year old son is here helping me and we are having a problem with this. We can find the app as you say, but the only option available when we tap on it, is to uninstall it, and it does not come up under apps in the shortcut to widgets file ( to set it on the desktop).
    Thank you for all your help I feel like I'm asking idiotic questions. This is our 1st Android product.

    Also if you want to put it on your home screen you can open up your app drawer and long press on the app then just drop it where ever you like on your home screen I find this easier than checking through the list of apps to create shortcuts especially when you have allot of apps but over all it's a personal opinion.

    Ok well at the bottom of the screen there should be a little dock bar with 3 little icons the one on the left should be a phone to represent the phone app, the one on the right should be a planet which represents the browser and in the middle there should be a few little squares tap the little squares. After that you should get a screen with all your apps in alphabetical order look for what ever file manager you downloaded then either tap it to open it or long press it to make an icon on your home screen.

    Thank you for the help:
    OK that's great, but how do we actually open this program? When we press on all these apps, we get a similar screen that shows the characteristics of the apps, and a choice to uninstall, all other options are ghosted out, unless that app loads automatically when the phone starts. We don't get a program to open ??

    I am confused, Astro is for file mgt, apps are not files. You run the app/clear cachand data/ or uninstall it.

    Under Settings/Applications/Manage Apps are you app choices

    OK guys I'm using the wrong terminology. We are opening the right location as you indicate, we have a long list of files there, Astro Pro is there, when we tap it we get the same thing as the others give us, a basic screen showing file size, storage, choice to uninstall, and cache info, defaults etc. No actual program opens like Google web search etc and the other programs on the main screen. I feel like a dunce, something doesn't add up here?
    Many thanks for your time !

    This is very strange when you try and tap any other app on this page what do you get as a screen?

    It doesn't seem to be in the applications list.
