Is there a way to name folders in launchpad like you can in iOS?  It doesn't seem possible in Lion, forcing us to stick with the default name applied by the system.

Just double click the name of the folder - and it should allow you to type what you want  :-)

    You'd think that would have been obvious and I did try it last night over and over again with no success.  Today is a different story though.  It worked not only on a double click, but a single click as well.  I have no idea why it wouldn't work last night.


    Thanks for the resonse.

    Hi again,


    It seems that Launchpad is a little buggy.  When I first post here, it was because I could not change the names of the folders given when you stack multiple apps.  Then, all of a sudden that changed and I was able to do it the way I thought I would be able to - the way you mentioned.  Now, out of nowhere again, I cannot alter the names of folders in Launchpad.  This goes for folders that have already been created, as well as new ones that I create.  It basically names the folder and that is it.  This is very odd.

    Click on the folder to open it up. Now change the name where it appears inside the open folder, at the top left, as you normally would..

    Hi tonefox,


    This is why I posted again.  It won't let me do that.  The area where the folder name appears does not become active when I click in it.  It simply is uneditable.  It doesn't matter if I click once, twice...  It simply won't let me access it to change it.
