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:
- 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.
- In the band, click the name of the folder. This selects the folder name, and makes it editable.
- Type the new name for the folder and press Return.
- Click anywhere outside the black band to close the Launchpad folder and return to the normal Launchpad view.
