How to create a folder on Android is a frequently asked question. The number of tablet and smartphone users on this operating system is constantly increasing, with almost everyone trying to customize the interface and the entire system in the most convenient way.
How to make storage for files and applications
Grouping similar files, programs, data, and so on makes it easier to find and access them.
Directories for storing files can be created not only in Explorer (file manager), but also in the device menu.
The procedure for adding such an element may differ slightly depending on which placement option you are interested in: on the desktop, in the menu, or in the file manager.
So, to create a folder in the system menu Android, you need to enter it. Then press the 'Menu' button. It's on every smartphone and tablet (next to the Home button). There is also such a button in the navigation system. It can be in some corner and look like three points located vertically.
After clicking it, an additional window appears in which you need to select 'New folder'. Next, select the applications that you want to put in it and click 'OK'. As you can see, everything is simple.
By analogy, you can make a directory for applications on the desktop. Exit to your desktop and click the button we already know. Now select 'Add'. Next click on 'Folder'. The system will offer to select programs to be placed in the created storage.
If you need to make a folder in the file explorer, then there is nothing difficult here either. First, go to the desired directory. For example, into a memory card. Now we press the 'Menu' button again, and select the action we need in the proposed list.
Now all that remains is to come up with a name for the newly created repository and click 'OK'.
You should have no difficulty in this very simple process.
So, we figured out the creation of the repository. Now you can move on to the system of protection and assignment of passwords for specific applications and data.

How to set a password
The operating system itself Android does not allow setting a password for a folder. There are no such opportunities in it. But you can install an application to lock programs and directories. There are a lot of such programs. The most common are KNOX, Apps Locker Master and Smart AppLock (gateway).
The main thing is to find a version for your device that supports the directory locking function. For example, the AppLock 'Gateway' utility creates a vault for photos and videos: launch the application and open the menu. Here you will see the directories you need. Anything you put in them will be blocked. You can open these files only by specifying a password.
