Smartphone-Like App Folders May Come to Windows 11’s Desktop

Each Microsoft and its prospects need extra from the Home windows 11 Begin Menu. That’s why Microsoft is engaged on tidy little Begin Menu app folders, which provide you with fast entry to teams of apps. However oddly sufficient, this function might lengthen to Home windows 11’s desktop.

As found by Windows Latest, Microsoft truly teased app folders for the desktop again in April. A small folder crammed with social media apps sits on the Home windows 11 desktop, virtually mockingly, throughout a phase within the firm’s Hybrid Work conference. (Which was a really boring occasion, in case you’re questioning why this flew beneath the radar.)

Technically talking, you possibly can already make “app folders” in Home windows 11—simply dump a bunch of app shortcuts into a daily previous folder. The good thing about this experimental function is that it exhibits a preview of app icons.

And whereas I’m making an informed guess right here, the Home windows 11 app folders most likely behave like folders in Android or iOS. They might broaden with a single click on, for instance, or disappear while you click on elsewhere on the display. (Conventional Home windows folders open with a double click on and must be manually closed.)

That mentioned, that is clearly an experimental function. Microsoft most likely didn’t intend for it to look within the Hybrid Work keynote, and for all we all know, it might simply be a mockup with none actual performance. There’s no assure that Microsoft will develop or launch this function.
