How do I create a folder on my iPad?

Answered by Edward Huber

Creating a folder on your iPad is a simple and convenient way to organize your apps. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you create a folder:

1. Start by locating the app you want to place in a folder on your iPad’s Home Screen.
2. Touch and hold the app icon until it starts to jiggle. This indicates that you can now move the app around.
3. While still holding the app icon, drag it onto another app that you want to include in the same folder. As you drag the app over the second app, you’ll notice that a new folder is automatically created.
4. Release your finger to drop the app into the folder. You can add more apps to the folder by dragging and dropping them in the same way.
5. Once you have added all the desired apps to the folder, you can rearrange them within the folder by tapping and holding an app icon, then dragging it to a new position.
6. To rename the folder, touch and hold it until it begins to jiggle, then tap the “Rename” option that appears. A text field will appear, allowing you to enter a new name for the folder.
7. Enter the desired name for the folder using the on-screen keyboard. Try to choose a name that reflects the apps contained within the folder or the category they belong to.
8. After entering the new name, tap “Done” on the keyboard to save the changes and exit the editing mode. The folder will no longer jiggle, indicating that you have successfully created and named it.
9. You can now access the folder by tapping on its icon on the Home Screen. Opening the folder will display all the apps contained within it, allowing you to easily access and organize your apps.

It’s worth mentioning that you can create multiple folders on your iPad to further organize your apps. By grouping related apps together in folders, you can declutter your Home Screen and have quick access to your favorite apps.

Creating folders on your iPad can greatly enhance your productivity and make it easier to find and use the apps you need. Give it a try and see how it can simplify your app management on the device.
