Windows 11 23H2 leak suggests new app folders on the desktop

While Microsoft is currently working on the first major update to its current operating system, Windows 11 22H2, developers should already be rolling out features for the next update. A screenshot shows an app folder on the desktop. So far, the Redmond company has only confirmed that they want to equip the Windows 11 start menu with folders.

A reader of the online magazine Windows Latest noted that Microsoft recently released a screenshot that also shows app folders on the desktop. Here you can see that the four applications Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit are grouped together in a group called “social media”. Since the screenshot was probably shown by accident, it could only be a draft. So it remains to be seen whether the feature will end up in a final Windows 11 build.

App folder is currently in the start menu

App folders are not an entirely new concept. With Windows 10, Microsoft introduced the ability to create folders and groups in the start menu. In contrast, the new feature should be usable on the desktop. This will especially benefit users who don’t want to use multiple desktops and want to keep their home screen clean. With a tidy desktop, it’s easier to find important apps faster.

In addition, any number of apps can be added to a folder. As the Redmond-based company is likely to focus on the release of Windows 11 22H2, known as “Sun Valley 2”, it’s still unclear what features should be built into the next update. In addition to improved widgets and innovations for the Microsoft Store, Explorer could be equipped with tabs. The first Insider builds with new features should be released in the coming months.
