Default Stacking Apps Like Files?

Please Login to Remove!

I apologize if this has been asked before, but is there a way to stack applications or files on the BB like folders? Basically, if I have several programs (such as MyUtils) that I want to place in a general folder, in order to reduce my home screen to maybe 5 general folders witt 5 apps each, is this possible?

Should be no problem to create a new folder and just move apps into it. Isn't "Add Folder" a menu option on your apps screen?

No, I don't have that. It could be because of my theme (Smoothie). Is that a generic option? Or, is there another menu that I don't know about?

I'm sure it could be theme related and/or OS related. Try the default theme and check it out.

I just checked the other themes that I have, and none offered this as an option. It would really be nice to make folders at will.

I also checked to see if the "Voice Notes" app was available in other themes, but it only seems to be an option within Messenger.

When your on the home screen and you press the menu hard key it doesn't have the "New folder" option?

Maybe I'm talking about a different key. Which key is the menu hard key for the 8703e?

I'm not very familiar with the 8703. If you're in your main applications screen and alt-click, does a menu pop up with things like Hide and Show All? If so, is Add Folder on that list?

Yes, we are talking about the same menu. I checked on several different themes and each one offers these options:

Move Icon
Hide Icon
Show All
Switch Application

This is boo.
