Microsoft continues to work on new features for Windows 11. The App Folders feature of the Start menu will likely find its way to the desktop. Explanation.

Windows 11 22H2, RTM Officially Available
For its part, the DEV channel will focus on new features, some of which will likely go down to the general public. This will be done in a future version of Windows 11, 23H2 for example.
We know that Microsoft is working on a customization option for the Pinned section of the Start Menu. It will take the form of application folders. Like what we can find on some mobile operating systems, the process is drag-and-drop. In other words, all you have to do is drag an app on top of another to create a folder. The process is automatic. It is of course possible later to reorganize and delete the applications from the respective folder. The ability to rename folders is also provided.
Windows 11 and application folders
A recent leak of Microsoft It is suggested that this feature can be offered to the desktop. The information was monitored during the event dedicated to the software giant’s hybrid work. This method allows you to drag an application icon to another to automatically create an Application Folder on the desktop.
It could land on the DEV channel in the coming months for testing purposes. It is no exception to being just a concept at the moment. Knowing we’re on the DEV channel, we’re in the business of experimenting.
This novelty is interesting because it simply allows you to do a quick cleaning of the office. This is an “area” of the operating system where shortcuts quickly accumulate. With just a few mouse movements, it becomes quick and easy to keep and maintain a clean Windows desktop.
Note that this is a novelty but not a revolution. This concept is already in Windows 10. It allows you to create folders or groups just for the live title shortcuts pinned to the home screen.
