    I would like to create folders on my home screen, such as "File Managers", which, when clicked, would open to show all the file manager apps from my 3 apps screens. I have found apps for Android 2.1-2.3 which seem to do what I want but none of them will work in Android 3.1. I would like to create folders for my most used apps so that I would need to access the apps screens as little as possible.

    That did work, however, to get what I want, I would have to create a new empty folder and than drag and drop the apps into it.

    I know.It is a little work but it works. That's like trying to cut and paste it wont work you have to copy and paste and then go back into the folder and delete the original.
    But I'm getting used to that.

    Glad you told me about copy and paste rather than cut and paste.
