    Question Folder style change

    Since I upgraded to JB I don't see the method to change the style of my folders. (I have the round platform style and am looking to change)

    I saw those new folders, I don't like the icon at all, looks like it is misplaced among the other icons. I wondered if that change came because of the Apple/Samsung patient lawsuits.

    I have also been looking unsuccessfully for an answer to this. What's also annoying now with folders is that they stay open on your home screens. So if I open an app in a folder then press home, I am taken back to that home screen but with the folder still open, so I have to press home again, or back, or tap elsewhere.

    This is something that they do on the Galaxy Note 10.1 as well. Haven't checked to see if the Note 2 acts the same way, but I imagine that this is something Samsung wants for their TouchWiz.

    I could understand it keeping the folder open if I press the back button to return to the home screen, but when I press the home button, I wanna go to the home screen.

    Yeah it bugged me to no end when I first used my Note 10.1, but now I got used to the extra button press. Still is annoying from time to time when I want to go straight to a screen.

    I'm sure you can't without installing a launcher app with different icons.
