    Can someone please explain to me how to do this. I'm sure its simple but I haven't beena able to figure it out. As far as I've gotten is long pressing on the home screen and being able to place the new folder on the homescreen. I have even been able to name the folder. I just haven't been able to do the most important thing which is placing apps in the folder. Would love to save some screen real estate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I've been using Go Launcher, so take this with a grain of salt, but if it is anything like it was on the OG, open your app drawer, long press the app you want, it should move and then you can move it to the screen with your folder and drop it in there. I hope that works for you.

    Edit: Just figured out that all I had to do was drag apps on my homescreen directly onto the folder. Sorry for posting a new thread for nothing. Feel free to close this thread.

    Folder Organizer allows you to use any icon for the folder, show/hide labels etc.

    Best.
