Move entire folder in menu

Is there any way of moving an entire folder in the n95 menu system

i.e. I have a folder named "applications" in the root. It contains a folder named "internet". I want to move the folder "internet" and its contents into the root.

Can this be done or do I have to create new folder, go into old folder, move each item into new folder, delete old folder?

some folders can be moved to other folders, but not system ones... AFAIK the only way you can tell if you can move it is if theres a 'move to folder' option

There is a way but it requires some tricky timing, it does work though. (Hope this makes sense)

Step 1. Install or find an application and move it to the left of the folder you want to move. Say your Office folder icon is in the middle of the screen, move the icon for any application you can delete just to the left of this.

Step 2. Delete the sacrificial application (the one you just moved to the left of your office folder)

Step 3. Just after it is deleted, the phone takes a few seconds to remove the icon, but during this time you can still access the menu, do so but don't select anything. Just open the menu and wait.

Step 4. After the icon disappears, you should now have the Office folder highlighted, simply click the still visible "Move to Folder" and put it wherever you want.

Hope this works for you :-) Might take a couple of tries to get it right though.

I did a similar method to this on my N80... but once I moved the folder to a different level the launch slowed right down... until eventually... it just didnt lauch anything...

Cant say it will be the same here... so let us know.

I used that method that dchky posted a while ago and it works fine. I did it just after upgrading to v20 (which I did the day it was out) and have been running the phone without problems ever since.

EDIT: This is the original tutorial I used, with pictures that might be helpful:
