There’s a general feeling that despite strong first-party results, the Nintendo Switch falls short of its competitors in terms of functionality and features. Depending on who you ask, folders are an important quality of life feature that makes managing large game libraries easier. Five years after the console’s launch, users can now create folders on the Nintendo Switch.
The latest update currently available added the ability to create groups, which are effectively folders. Up to a total of 100 groups can be created with a generous limit of 200 titles per group. Fortunately, the same game can be added to multiple groups.
That means you could add a game like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to two separate groups – one for racing games, the other encompassing everything falling under the Mario franchise, without the groups conflicting with each other.
However, there is a limitation with Nintendo’s folder implementation. According to the official Nintendo support site, the option to create groups will not open until there are more than 12 software saved on the system. On the one hand, one can argue that this makes sense. With so few games, you wouldn’t necessarily need to manage folders. On the other hand, it’s a limitation that shouldn’t exist. Regardless, it’s nice to have folders on the Nintendo Switch after all these years.
