Android Icon for "open" or "load"

Is there a built-in Android icon for "open" or "load"? I'm making menu items, and I see

ic_menu_save
, but there's no
ic_menu_open
nor
ic_menu_load
. I guess I could just use
ic_menu_add
, but that's not quite right. I;m looking for a little folder or something. Surely others have needed an open icon?

Answer

If you browse the icons in your SDK, you will see that ic_menu_archive looks like an open folder. However, bear in mind that it looks like an open folder for stock Android -- these icons can be changed by device manufacturers. Google recommends that you copy these icons from your SDK into your project, so that you can have a consistent set within your app.
