10.7: Launchpad - Organize by folders
Authored by: sugarquay on Dec 16, '11 08:35:03AM

Just click & drag Launchpad icons around, into & out of folders, on top of each other to create folders etc. - there's no need to use the Option key whilst doing so.

Holding the Option key is only useful if you wish to delete an app downloaded from the App Store, as it reveals the little 'x' on the icons for such apps.

10.7: Launchpad - Organize by folders
Authored by: astack on Dec 16, '11 12:31:21PM

I have had a tremendous amount of trouble clicking and dragging these icons around using a trackpad on a macbook air which has no separate trackpad button but the button is the trackpad. Especially difficult is when you are dragging an app from the second page to the first, you often "drop" the app by mistake. By placing the apps in permanently moveable state, it will make life much easier to rectify this because you can just swipe using three fingers to get it to the correct location instead of clicking and waiting for a dropped app to move it to the correct location.

This is a great hint!!

10.7: Launchpad - Organize by folders

I use keep my thumb on the button of the trackpad and use my pointer finger to scroll and drag. Maybe this will help you.

I have seen many people struggle because they either do not use there thumb or they try and use 2 hands.
