Windows 11 Quick Tip: How to create Start Menu folders

Last year’s update to Windows 11 introduced a new Start Menu folder feature. With folders you can tidy up your Start Menu and make things easier to find.

The first step is to make sure you have the Windows 11 2022 Update installed. You can check you have the update by going to Settings, System and About. You should see the system version as 22H2 and if you do you are good to go. If it says 22H1 then you haven’t gotten the update yet, and you checkout my guide on how to getting the Windows 11 2022 Update.

To create folders on the Start Menu in Windows 11 you drag one icon over the other and Windows then creates a folder. You can then drag additional items into the folder and give it a suitable name.

It’s as simple as that. It makes your Start Menu much cleaner and it’s a great way of organising your Start Menu.
