    I've been trying out a lot of applications and my desktop is getting rather busy because of it. I was looking at third party apps which put your desktop icons in folders, but heard there was a way touchwiz could do it. After digging and googling, touchwiz might be able to do it but I can't figure out how. So does anyone know if it can. If not can anyone recommend an app that does it and save me trouble evaluating?

    Long-press on an icon on the desktop and drag it onto another icon.

    I think you mean "or" not "on".:D
    Thank you

    A related question: can you create a folder inside the folder?
    I tried to but I couldn't find a way and when I create the menu, the "Create Folder" option is unselectable.

    You can create a folder within a folder by using Folder organizer first. Create folder organizer labels and put them on the desktop and then you can ccreate folders out of those.

    No need for any apps, just press and hold anywhere on your homescreen and up pops the choice to create a new folder or page.

    Then you can drag things into it

    You can't drag a folder into a folder. I've tried.

    I found a way and was trying to help the guy out I perhaps may or not know how the folder works but was just trying to help answer the original question. Sorry if i have not done that.

    You can only create folders with shortcuts to apps by default. You would need a file explorer that allows creating shortcuts to files on the desktop to achieve what you want to do.
