Creating a Folder on Android

One of the essential skills every Android user should have is knowing how to create a folder. Folders allow you to organize your apps, documents, and other files in a neat and structured manner. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of creating a folder on your Android device.

Step 1: Accessing the Home Screen

To begin, unlock your Android device and navigate to the home screen. This is the default screen that appears when you power on or unlock your device. It usually contains icons for various apps and widgets.

Step 2: Selecting Apps

Bold Text: On the home screen, locate an app that you want to include in the folder. Press and hold that app until it becomes draggable. Once it does, drag it over another app icon that you want to group together.

Underlined Text: You will notice that both icons become highlighted, indicating that they are selected for folder creation.

Step 3: Creating the Folder

Bold Text: Now release your finger from the screen. A new folder will be created automatically with both apps inside it.

Step 4: Customizing the Folder

You can further customize your folder by giving it a name. To do this:

  • Bold Text: Tap on the newly created folder to open it.
  • Underlined Text: Tap on the “Unnamed Folder” text at the top of the screen.
  • Bold Text: A keyboard will appear, allowing you to enter a name for your folder.
  • Underlined Text: Once you have entered the desired name, tap outside the text box to save it.

You can repeat the above steps to add more apps to the folder. Simply press and hold an app, then drag it onto the folder.

Step 5: Accessing and Managing the Folder

If you want to access or manage the folder, simply tap on it. The folder will open, displaying all the apps it contains. From here, you can rearrange or remove apps as needed.


In just a few simple steps, you can create a folder on your Android device and organize your apps efficiently. Folders help declutter your home screen and make it easier to find specific apps when you need them. Experiment with different folders and arrange your apps in a way that suits your needs best.
