Would like to map a button on my Android phone to directly go into the 'new message' creation window. Is that possible? Widgets available on my system only appear to do 'counters, messages, and text to speech'

Thanks,

Peter

Hi, you can create an activity as a shortcut

Available with Nova Launcher, Tasker, Activity Launcher etc.

Select AquaMail - > New Message

You don't need Nova launcher to do this. I think it might be Android 8 or Nine. Long press on the icon to get the shortcut list. One of them says "new message" long press and drag it anywhere on the home screen. You'll then have a new message icon shortcut.

It's not about putting a shortcut to homescreen. He wants to use a button (e.g. volume up/down, bixby ornmaybe  long pressing home button)

Instead you need a button mapper app and link to the activity
