I see a nice Google folder on my home page but nowhere do I see any way to create new ones.
Has anyone figured out how to create new folders on the Home?

Long press does not yield this option like it used to.

Found some info


Inm the online manual found here http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/co...1.0_140530.pdf

This does not appear to work on some devices (of course after posting this I must have got some sort of update or a service installed because its now working as intended)

Creating a folder
1 On the Classic Home screen, tap and hold an app, and then drag it to Create folder that
appears at the top of the screen.
2 Enter a folder name.
3 Tap , select the apps to move to the folder, and then tap Done.

Instead you have to do it from the Apps Drawer.

Tap the 3 dots in the top-right corner to get this menu then when you have created the folder, long press it to add it to your Home.

If your rooted than use
"Root Explorer"
: Navigate to folder/file or make a new folder/file
: now long hold on the folder/file you created and near the bottom of the menu you will see "create shortcut" and tap it.
: now back out to your home screen and you should see the folder/file

On a side note, does anyone know how to delete a home screen?

Pinch on the screen and you should see all of them in preview then slide up to remove ones you don't want.

Thanks, I had tried that and it didn't work but it did this time.
