    I have figured out how to create a folder on my homescreen but for the life of me can't figure how to change the name of the folder or how to add shortcuts to different programs into a folder. Help will be much appreciated :confused:

    Took me ages to work this out, and I'd have given my left 'gland' for someone to post a solution on here, so here we go:

    Open the folder, press and hold the box title and another box comes up that lets you change the name. :cool:

    Sorry I didn't read that far! To do this, put the icon onto your home screen next to the folder in the usual way, and just drag it into the folder like you would on Windows (pardon my French). :cool:

    I put that in the post just after (I was a bit hasty in replying!)

    Just add them to your home screen and drag them in :)

    As explained above, add the shortcut to the homescreen of what you want in the folder. Long press on the shortcut and drag it onto the folder. The folder image will "open" and the shortcut will then be in that folder.

    Now, changing the icon of the folder is another thing, no-one knows how to do that without using FolderOrganiser.

    I couldn't find out how to change the name either:

    The stock method of making folders sucks. Try the FolderOrganizer app.

    FolderOrganizer - Cyrket

    I LOVE it. Best app out there.

    Can't believe adding specific things to a folder was so easy! I was trying to figure it out for days! Thanks!
