    Again, I want to make a folder to be inside of another folder on my home screen. Seems like a basic function, can't figure out how to do it.

    Hi

    The "folders" on your home screen are not like folders which contain other folders and files, they are just groupings of apps. They do not appear as folders in any filemanager. AFAIK you cannot have sub "folders" of apps on the home screen.

    NB You can put "folders" of apps in the dock at the bottom

    Maybe there is - do post it if you find it!

    I use Holo launcher with a scrollable dock and 3 sets of 6 folders in the 3 docks to keep all my apps in. Just widgets on the screen.

    Try Folder Organizer, you used to be able to do that with that app.

    Nova lets you group your icons in folders on the desktop. example; first pic popcorn icon.
    You just enable and drag the apps on top of one another and they stack together showing the original app. you can change the appearance of the backround (disk, hole, box etc.) which makes it look like they are coming out.

    then if you tap the icon it will show the grouped apps in the folder and you just tap what you want to open

    I use nova launcher. Would be cool if I could put folders within folders. Anyone else ever want this?

    I have the same question, I would be very happy if there was a way to put folder in a folder on the homescreen.
