How To Add A New Folder On Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8+ Plus

Creating new folders is something we all do to handle our data easier on all the devices we use. Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus also offer this function, as a natural and basic feature for any user. Whether you want to better organize your Home screen or to keep similar applications in common folders, you should know how to add a new folder on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus.

In this article, we’d like to share with you two different methods for creating folders on both of the previously mentioned smartphones from Samsung.


Method #1

  1. Pick whatever two apps you would like to have in the same folder.
  2. Select one of them and drag it on top of the other;
  3. Release the selected app and a new folder containing both apps will open up on the screen;
  4. Chose a name for this folder and introduce it into the special field from the top of the window.


Method #2

  1. Select an app from the Home screen;
  2. Hold it and drag it to the top of the screen;
  3. Release it on top of the option labeled as New Folder;
  4. Edit the name of the newly created folder however you want;
  5. Use the keyboard to select Done;
  6. Repeat these steps to move other apps into the same folder.


The first method is probably a bit simpler since it starts with a basic action, the one of moving around an icon or a widget. Nevertheless, with any of these two methods, you can always come back later and add new apps with a simple drag and drop.

Your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus just became even easier to use – now that you know how to group apps under the same folder, you can download more apps from the Play Store, without overcrowding your screens.
