Windows Phone 8.1 Update native folder support

When Nokia began rolling out its Lumia Black update last year, it included support for a new App Folder feature that allowed users to group apps and settings into a single tile on their Start screen. Now a Microsoft support page has shown that native support for that feature is coming to Windows Phone soon.

A page that was recently spotted on Microsoft’s Windows Phone website included instructions on how users can create a folder on their Start screen to group apps together. To create a folder, users must tap and hold a tile, drag it on top of another app that they want in the same folder and then name it. The process is similar to the folder creation process found on other mobile platforms.

Windows Phone 8.1 Update Microsoft confirmed

According to the page, which has since been removed, this native folder support will be coming with Windows Phone 8.1 Update. The update is expected to begin rolling out to the public in July or August.

While native folder support may not sound like the most exciting feature ever, it’s actually a pretty big deal. Microsoft’s decision to bake folder support into Windows Phone will allow users to have quick access to apps while keeping their Start screen better organized than if they didn’t have folders.

Do you use folders to organize the apps on your phone or tablet’s home screen?
