A folder can be your best friend when it’s easily accessible and you find in it precisely what you were looking for. Of course, in order to get to this level with your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus, you will first have to learn the ropes of creating and editing folders. If you think you don’t need it right now, you’ll probably think again as soon as you’ll get tired of swiping from one Home panel to another.
Don’t wait until you have downloaded and installed tens of different apps to accept that you need to put them in order. Read this short guide and learn two of the simplest strategies to create folders on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus. Here they are:
Start from the first app you want to isolate within a dedicated folder. Find it, select it, and drag it on top of another app. To make this work smoothly, it is best that the two apps are on the same panel of the Home screen. But as you wait there, with the first app selected and placed over the second, all you need is to watch closely and notice the moment when the second app changes its size and becomes slightly bigger. That’s your telltale that you can let go of the other app and, rest assured, the two of them will form a folder. Of course, the next clue that you’re doing right will be the small window popping up, where you are supposed to see the two icons inside it and type in the name of your new folder.
The alternative is just as easy and intuitive. Say you have created a folder on your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus and now you want to make a second folder. Again, it is best that you work with apps from the same panel. If they aren’t on the same page, you can move one of them to bring them closer together. Then, from the screen where you want to have your new folder, identify the first two apps you want to group. Select just one of them and hold it until you notice it raises on top of the screen – you can now begin to move it around the display, without releasing the hold. Only drop it after you have overlapped the selection with the other app you want to have in the common folder. When releasing the tap, you’ll be asked to set up a name for the folder and you can continue bringing in more apps with the same steps.
Have you noticed how easy it is to organize a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus in numerous folders? If you still have questions, write them down and we’ll help you right away!
