    Favorites on main screen

    I don't want to clutter my main screen and would love to put my favorite programs in a favorite folder. I can create the favorites folder but can't figure how to move programs to it. Any ideas?

    Long press an app from the app tray and drag it to the folder you created and "drop" it in the folder

    That doesn't work. When I let go it goes. Sci to where it was. I can drag it to the trash can and have it disappear but that is it.

    Ensure the folder is on your home screen first. Add the app to the home screen as normal. Long press as if you were deleting it but drag it onto the folder instead of the trash can and voila!

    You have 7 home screens... Well 6 cause you want the main home clear, right? Why not just put your short cut on another pane?

    Both folder and application are on home screen. I long push and drag the application to the folder just like I would if I wanted to delete it but instead of taking it to the trash can I take it to the new folder. The new folder lights up when I hover over it, I let go and the application goes back to where it was and no application in the folder.

    Is it an application or a widget? I don't think Widgets work in folders (at least none that I've tried)

    yes that's the problem, a widget won't go into a folder. every time you try to drag it into the folder it will just bounce back to the home screen

    Ok well here then. I made a folder, renamed it "favs". I put three apps on that pane next to it. A third party app (alchemy), df forums, and a preloaded app...navigation. Long press and drag all three to the folder and voila. All inside the folder. Just make sure your not inadvertently making a widget. The folder will definitely not accept a widget.

    Before and after.
