    Arranging App icons into folders in Samsung Galaxy SIII

    As I have installed many apps into my Samsung Galaxy SIII, the home screen is messed up with app icons. I want to arrange them in separate folders so that it will clean up the home page and I can retrieve them easily. What should I do for that?

    You should first of all get into the home screen and touch any of the Apps icons. On doing so, you can see a list of options appears at the bottom part of the screen. You should touch the ‘Create folder’ option from that list. You should then give a name to that folder so that a folder icon will be created on the home screen. After that, you should locate the app you want to put into that folder. Then, you should touch and hold the app icon and drag it to the folder icon. You can then find a folder on the home page of your phone. You can put other apps icons into this folder by repeating these steps.

    Hello

    Just press and hold one icon and drag it over another icon, then automatically a folder will be created.

    You can change the name of the folder and later on just keep on adding icons to it to group particular no of items. All the icons can be dragged to the folder so it will automatically go inside the folder

    Thanks
