Folders. How to make them?

4 posts in this topic

Hello again I searched this forum but didn't find anything really related. So there is two ways:

1) I'm too stupid to find the thing that is in fact here (on forum or in firmware)(in fact this is probably the point)

2) Nobody yet asked.

Tell me please how to make folders. I mean not the ones you can put on the widget panel but the ones you have in app drawer. Because I dont like so skip a couple of screens filled with some random apps, I really prefer to see some frequently used apps and some folders in which all other things are located. In standart firmware you could achieve that by pressing menu button and choosing "edit" but how can I do it here?

I found some software in market like "app folders" but it does not help to get rid from icons in app drawer.

Sorry if there is an option to create such folder but I really can not find it.

ADW will let you hide applications you never use with the "categories" option

ADW Launcher doesnt support folders inside the app drawers, but there is a way to sort out your icons. You can have multiple categories, which you can access by swiping left/right. Its possible to configure each category to have certain applications in it, with one drawer being the 'everything else' that isnt categorized. When you're on your home page, go menu-settings-ADWLauncher, and make sure that the 'Catalog' setting is enabled.

If it is, open your launcher, then hit 'menu', and setup the catalogs you want.

Hey guys, just fyi. I was trying to "move" apps to catagories I would create, but it make a copy of the app shortcut to the new catagory I created and still leave in the unsorted (default) catagory.

Fixed this up by going to Menu > settings > ADWLauncher > Drawer Settings

and check "Catalogs only".

I'm sure someone else will find this annoying. It took me a couple of weeks to figure this out :)
