Renaming Launchpad Folders

The iOS Home page was obviously the inspiration for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion’s Launchpad feature, and for those who have used an iOS device, it should be very familiar. But not everyone with a Mac uses an iOS device.

A reader, unfamiliar with iOS, wrote in recently stating that he’d figured out how to put several apps into a Launchpad folder but was stymied when it came time to rename that folder. Here are the steps:

  1. Click the folder icon, so that it opens, showing a black band across the screen, with the contents of the folder within that band and the folder’s name at the top left of the band.
  2. In the band, click the name of the folder. This selects the folder name, and makes it editable.
  3. Type the new name for the folder and press Return.
  4. Click anywhere outside the black band to close the Launchpad folder and return to the normal Launchpad view.
