Nintendo is finally adding folders to the Switch, so to speak

Nintendo has added a new folder-style feature to the Switch UI, more than five years after the console was first released. It is part of the system firmware version 14.0 which is available for download now.

Being Nintendo, the system doesn’t work exactly as you might expect. It’s called “Groups” and doesn’t allow you to place anything on the home screen – instead, you have to scroll all the way to the right to get to the vertical list of all your software and press L. With it you can access or create groups of different games. Nintendo has published a guide on how to use the feature here.

It won’t do all that much then to organize your home screen or full list of games. I already have such a large Switch library that the easiest way for me to find what I wanted to play was to sort this list in alphabetical order. But the group feature could still be useful for self-curation. I have a few games from the Sega age and Arcade Archive Series of retro re-releases, for example (shout to Virtual Racing), and with Switch Groups, it’s easy to place them in custom collections.

Version 14.0 of the switch firmware also includes enhancements to the system’s Bluetooth audio feature, which was added in version 13.0. Nintendo says you can now adjust the volume of Bluetooth headphones or speakers using either the Switch itself or buttons on the Bluetooth device, which apparently wasn’t possible before. The Switch now displays the audio volume according to the button press on the Bluetooth device, and the maximum volume output for some devices has also been increased.
