If you have been using Apple TV for a long time, you must have downloaded a bunch of apps and games onto your Apple TV. However, they can clutter up your Home screen. In this case, it’s best to group them into folders. And this tutorial shows you how to group Apple TV apps into folders to get everything arranged according to preference.

There are two ways to group Apple TV apps into folders.
Method 1: Click and Drag
Step 1: First, you are supposed to select an app you would like to move into a folder. You need to click and hold the Touch surface on the Siri remote (hold down Select if you are using an older remote) until the app start jiggling.
Step 2: On the Siri remote, you are asked to slide your finger on the Touch surface to move the selected app over another app until they are grouped together. You will have to use the directional buttons if you are using an older remote.
Step 3: Once you are done, just release the Touch surface or Select and your new folder should be created.
Method 2: Use the Options Menu
Step 1: First and foremost, choose an app on your Home screen until it start jiggling.
Step 2: Next, hit the Play/Pause button to bring up a menu with options to delete the app, create a new folder for it, group it into another folder we’ve already created, or cancel the operation.
