    Combine Window Apps into One Folder


    Can anyone tell me how I can move window 10 apps like camera, clock, feedback hub, into a single folder?

    The executable code is already in one folder....

    Could you clarify?

    Or perhaps you mean you have relocated your app folder, and wish to reverse that?

    the start menu contains a - alarms & clocks, c - calculator, camera, connect etc. all these single apps that makes the menu list long. I want to take all these entries and place them in one folder, Win10Apps. I just dont know where they reside so I can "move" them to a single folder.

    With the app files themselves, you cannot move them. However, if you are on the Insider Program running the Creators Update, you can create folders with the live tiles in the Start Menu by dragging them ontop of each other. You'll then be able to give that folder a name.
    If you aren't in the Insider Program, I would recommend simply grouping your live tiles since you can label each group. It's a great way to organize your apps until you get the Creators Update when it releases.
    I hope that helps!

    Ah, you mean the start menu 'shortcut' presentation, not the actual 'executable' code (noting they don't use exe files).

    Unfortunately the Start Menu is relatively inflexible and does not permit much adaptation, especially the LHS.

    Difficult to get used to after Win 7. Even using Classic Shell, where all other areas are very easy to modify, the Apps list doesn't permit that.

    Thank you for sharing the tutorial Bree.

    Dalchina, you are correct, which is why I suggested using the live tiles, which are very versatile. I suggest looking at the tutorial Bree shared, and I think you'll find it very flexible. You can even change the size of the tiles if you want to be daring.

    Combine Window Apps into One Folder


    I am part of the insider program and I have used the folder option in the start menu. I just dislike the untidiness of the groupings, it shouldnt be this inflexible. Where are the hackers when you need them?

    I create custom shortcuts with custom names so the categorized Universal Apps get pushed farther to the bottom where I don't have to look at them.

    Custom folders are okay too, except they still show as that 'putrid' manila folder!
