How to enable folders in Chrome’s App Launcher

Google’s continued invasion on Windows turf took another step forward recently with the addition of an experimental folders feature inside of it’s Chrome Apps Launcher.

Apps Launcher, released in July, gave Windows users a small taste of Chromebook life – a simple, clean, 4×4 application launcher to open their Chrome Apps. With the addition of this new experimental feature, users won’t have to scroll page to page to get to their favorite Chrome Apps- they can now create folders to store their shortcuts in a style very familiar to Android.

If you’re feeling brave enough, and have the Chrome Apps Launcher turned on, copy and paste the following text into Chrome’s address bar and press Enter:

chrome://flags/#enable-app-list-folder

Note: If you don’t see this flag, it most likely means you don’t have Chrome Canary (the beta version of Chrome) installed. To install, click here and download. Once it’s installed, copy and paste the same link above in the Chrome Canary address bar and proceed.

Click the dropdown, and select “Enabled.” Once enabled, close all windows (save your work in any other application first!) and reboot. This will allow Chrome to reload and enable the changes to the App Launcher.

How to create Groups of folders in ChromeOS

Creating groups is rather simple. Simply drag and drop an icon on top of another. A little grey circle will appear and the icon will shrink. When you release, you’ll see the circle, with two small icons inside. Just like Android, you’ll see the first 4 icons inside the folder in the folder preview.

How to name/rename Groups

To name or rename a group, click on the group, and in the box containing the greyed out text at the top that says “unnamed folder”, simply click and type the name you want. After pressing Enter, the name will stick. To rename, click again, and replace the name with your desired edits.

Moving items out of a folder

What happens when you want to move an icon back to the home screen? Open the folder, and drag the icon you want to move OUTSIDE the App Launcher Window. After a moment, the App Launcher will return to the home list of all folders and icons, and you can simply drop it in the App Launcher.

Simple, right? That’s the entire point Google is trying to make with Chrome and ChromeOS. Users don’t need fancy ribbon interfaces crammed full of 60 different buttons in a confusing mess that makes using your computer miserable. If anything, they’re putting the PERSONAL back into PC.
