Create (and Rename) Android Folders

Oh goodness – there are app icons everywhere! Five different Minecraft clones, Angry Birds analogs and about a dozen or so camera apps that “seemed like a good idea at the time”.

Cluttered doesn’t even begin to describe it, but thankfully – just like iOS [1] – there’s a quick and easy way to stow those icons in neat, easy-to-access folders, and then name them whatever you want!

It’s super easy, so let’s find out how: 

First, we need to make a folder. Tap and hold on a blank area of the screen, and a menu will pop up with some choices for wallpaper, Apps and Widgets, and Folders.

Tap Folder, and it will ask you to give it a name (example: “Games” for game apps, “Camera Stuff” for camera apps, and so on).

You’re then left with a simple icon on the screen that you can now tap and drag icons into.

Voila! Instant space saver!

…but what if you want to rename a folder – say from a simple name, like “Games” to something more… appropriate, like “Time Wasters”?

Well, that’s easy, too.  All you need to do is tap on the folder to open it, and once inside, tap on the title of the folder.

This will bring up a cursor that allows you to change the folder’s name to whatever you like!

Space saving, and customizing! That’s how we do things around here!
