Since the release of Windows 11, users have had mixed reactions to the Start Menu, with significant features scrapped out. 

Compared to Windows 10, it has lost so many features, and now Microsoft is adding more to enhance its abilities and make it more useful.

Start Menu has been missing the ability to create folders in Windows 11, but it seems that could soon be over from the look of things.

Long-awaited feature

It seems Microsoft was keeping a listening ear and is finally taking action. The feature to create named folders of apps may be finally coming back to Windows 11.

The Windows team is working on a lot of things to improve the product experience. One of them is bringing back named groups and folders of apps.

Microsoft recently discovered that users really missed the feature to create named groups and folders of apps, so the company decided to add it back.

Small snippet

Windows 11 users, who upgraded from Windows 10, will notice a new feature in the Start Menu: you can now create folders by dropping one app on another.

From the video on Twitter, it seems Windows 11 users will be able to create named folders in the Start Menu by dropping an app into another.

If the reactions are anything to go by, users are pretty excited about this new addition and cannot wait for it to drop.

This is only the start to making the Start Menu more desirable. It might actually mean a lot of other features could make a comeback if users are loud enough in the feedback forums.
