How to make a folder on Telegram


At first glance, Telegram may seem like a simple messaging app. But users know that it is much more than that. With great features being added all the time, there's always something new to love about Telegram. For example, the last major update added chat folders to help us organize our conversations.

In this article, we will show you how to make folders on Telegram and much more.


What are Telegram folders?

Many people use Telegram both for work and to chat with their friends. After a while, you end up having many chats and joining many groups. All of which can be somewhat confusing.

Telegram may be the first messaging application to offer a solution to this problem: chat folders. Now you can organize your conversations and search and explore specific chats much faster.

You can create folders for different types of conversations. After the update, most people created two separate folders: one for work and one for friends and family. That way, you can have better control over your conversations. It also helps you separate your personal and professional life.

Also, you can create a specific folder for group or channel conversations. This can be very helpful if you have children and communicate with their teachers or fellow parents through Telegram.

Of course, it is up to you to organize your conversations the way you want. These are just suggestions that we think may be helpful to you.


How to create a folder?

Now you know what Telegram folders are and how to use them. Time to show you how to create the folders themselves. This is what you have to do:

  1. Open the Telegram app.
  2. Touch the three lines in the upper left corner of the screen.
  3. Enter the settings.
  4. Scroll down and Touchez Folders.
  5. Touch the plus sign to create a new folder.

There you go! You have just created a new folder. Now you have to customize it.

  1. Type the name of the folder.
  2. Touchez Add chats and select the conversations you want to add to this folder.

When you enter the Folders section, you will see some suggested folders. If you want to add one of those folders, just Touchez the Add sign next to their names. For example, Telegram suggests that users create an "Unread Folder". By creating this folder you will never lose a message as all new messages will be stored there until you read them.

It is up to you whether to use them or create a new one. You can create as many folders as you like; There is not limit.

How to delete chat from a folder?

Of course, you can always add new chats to a folder, but you can also delete conversations. This is what you have to do:

  1. Open the Telegram app.
  2. Touchez the three lines in the upper left corner.
  3. Enter the settings.
  4. Scroll down and Touchez Folders.
  5. Enter the folder you want to change.
  6. Then you can Touchez Add chat or Delete chat, depending on what you want to do.
  7. Type the name of the chat.
  8. Finally, once again Touchez Add / Remove.

That's all about it! Your priorities change over time, as do the people you chat with the most. That is why Telegram allows you to update your folders to make the most of them.

Archived folders

With the latest update, you will automatically get archived folders. You can use them for conversations that are no longer active but that you don't want to delete.

Moving chats to the archive has never been so easy. All you have to do is swipe the conversation from right to left and it will be archived.

If you receive a new message in the archived chat, it will automatically move from archived conversations to active ones. You can disable this feature by muting the conversation. That way, it will stay in archived chats unless you decide to move it. Please note that this means that you will not be notified when you receive a new message in that chat.

I have no folders

If you can't find this option in your Telegram app, don't worry. The feature was only introduced in late March, which means it can take a while until it reaches all users. Some users received it automatically, while others had to update their applications.

If you haven't updated Telegram recently, now is the time to do it. You will probably be able to use folders, as well as some other cool features, after the update. We don't want to reveal everything, but there are some new emojis that you will love.

If you still don't see the folders, there may be another explanation. Telegram introduced folders to help people with many chats get organized. If you use Telegram only to chat with a friend or two, you may assume you don't need this feature. When your chat list gets longer, this feature will be available.

Pin a chat

Telegram has gone the extra mile when it comes to organization. It is now possible to pin one or more chats on top of your app. You can pin conversations you use frequently, so you don't have to scroll down every time you want to write something.

Alternatively, you can pin chats that contain important information. Even if these chats are no longer active, you will have the information at hand. This can be very helpful, especially when it comes to your work.

Organization is everything

Organizing our things is essential, both online and offline. Hopefully, the latest Telegram update will help you organize your conversations. We love how useful it is. Hopefully, other apps will follow suit soon.
