How to create folders on your BlackBerry 10 phone

Organize your apps by creating folders on your BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10!

BlackBerry 10 Folders

Organizing your BlackBerry 10 homescreen is one of the first things you'll want to do with a new device.

Everyone likes icons in different places for easy access or even esthetics.

With BlackBerry 10, you can even create folders to get a deeper level of organizing to satisfy your OCD. 

If you're like me, you'll have plenty of folders and know right where everything is when you need it.  

You can create as many as you'd like and each of them can hold up to 16 apps or games. 

Creating folders on BlackBerry 10 is easy as pie so keep reading to see just how it's done.

  • To create a new folder, tap and hold on an icon on your homescreen
  • When the icon jiggles, drag it on top of another icon and let go
  • A new dialog will pop up allowing you to name the folder (Games, App, Folder1 etc.)

The folder will now be on your homescreen and you can add apps/games by dragging to the folder in the same manner as above.

Remove Items from a Folder

To remove an item from a folder, go into the folder then tap and hold the icon. Drag the icon to the bottom of the screen.

Well, maybe they'll have a youtube specific app and Netflix when they release in the U.S.
Happy that they have the folders option.
Can't wait to hear about battery life.

I barely use folders on the playbook because I don't use enough apps to begin with to put them in folders. :)

But I might with the Q10 like I do with my bold 9900 since it's way too handy. :D

To easily move an app to the next page, hold it down and look for a solid blue line to appear at the left edge of the app icon. The green light indicates that the app is ready to be moved. Then while holding the app down just slide it over to the right edge, maintaining visual confirmation of the solid blue line...slide it slowly to the edge and kinda let it "fall off" the edge. I push it to the edge and then kinda let it fall off to the next page. I hope that helps.

Does a third party app exist to move apps and folders from a pc? I'm updating to 10.2 and i'll be re installing a ton of side-loaded apps, so i'm nor really looking forward to having to reorganize my whole phone.
