How to Create Folders on Your iPad

Folders help organize and categorize information. iPads have the capability of creating folders on the desktop, which can then be used to organize and store applications, photos, videos or other content. Creating folders on your iPad is an easy way to reduce the number of screens you must scroll through when searching for an application.

Create a folder by tapping and holding down any application icon that you want to organize into a folder, until the application icon starts jiggling.

Drag the application icon on top of any other application icon that you want to include in your folder. This will cause the home screen on your iPad to fade. A folder display will appear containing both of the application icons that you touched.
