Using Folders In Chrome OS

With the release of using folders in the latest Chrome OS beta, I decided to try it out even though I’m using the latest Chrome OS dev build.

being able to use folders in Chrome OS makes it feel more like a proper Desktop OS and less like Android.

I’ve always kept my most used Applications sorted alphabetically on the shelf, but being able to tidy all my apps into folders within the App Drawer will improve productivity even more as everything is organised neatly.

I’d previously been sorting my applications in an alphabetical list, but this was getting a bit of a pain as I was having to scroll through the App Drawer to find what I want.

But since using the folders in the App Drawer I’m finding it far more easier to find what I want as my App Drawer is down to one Page of alphabetically sorted folders.

I’ve also got my Applications sorted alphabetically within folders.

Google should really expand this App Drawer folder feature to include the ability to have folders within the Android App Drawer.
