    Default Folders: How to create on Home Screens

    This got buried up in the Hacks thread....

    just as a reminder for newbies and old farts like myself..... I had to use Google Advanced Search to find this again.


    Thanks to the following for making this thread:

    The second choice is create folder.

    The way I have done is that I make it in the App drawer and then I drag it to the home screen .....

    Same thing, just said differently.

    The new folder exists firstly on the App Drawer page, and then you can drag it to a home screen.

    What I have not found yet is How to Remove an unneeded Folder off the App Drawer....

    I have one labeled "Test" and would like to expunge the darn thing.
    Don't see a way to rename it either.

    When you are in your apps/folder screen hit the Menu, click Edit. Now long press on the folder until it snaps off the page, then drag it to the trash.

    You can also hold down on an existing icon on the homepage. In the upper right you will see "create folder".

    That will NOT remove it from the Apps screen though. It stays there like glue.

    The previous post was correct, and it works perfectly by using EDIT and dragging that rogue folder to the trash dump.

    I don't disagree if you created the folder in the app drawer. I was simply stating another way you can create a folder outside of the app drawer.
