You can easily create folders on your home screens to group similar apps together.
i. Creating a folder
- To create a folder, simply drag one app onto another. A folder will automatically be created.
ii. Editing a folder’s name
- Tap a folder to open it.
- Tap the folder name to edit it.
iii. Deleting a folder
- Tap the folder you want to remove to open it.
- Drag the apps one after another out of the folder.
- The folder will automatically be deleted.
If you uninstall all the apps in a folder, you’ll get an empty folder.
- To remove this empty folder, tap and drag it to the Bin icon at the top of the screen.

The default video player in Redmi Note 4g is not available on the screen. It’s there on the phone and visible in Settings->Apps and also opens when I want to play a video file. However it is directly not available on the screen. Can you please help?
By default, this is how it’s. The video app icon isn’t available on the home screen.
Thanks for the clarification, Ethan.

Kindly see MIUI 6: How to add and set a default home screen on your Xiaomi phone?
The basic 4 apps on the bottom of home screen…i misplaced my messaging aop and can’t find it.. pls help.. i recieve messages though…note 4g…miui 6
First thing first, the Messaging app is a pre-installed you can’t uninstall without rooting your phone.
If you’re still receiving text messages on the Messaging app, it means that the Messaging app isn’t disabled. Try look for it again, it could hiding in one of the folders.
If you’re receiving text messages on a different app such as Hangout, then it’s very likely that you’ve accidentally disabled the Messaging app. You can follow the steps below to enable it.
1. From the phone’s Settings
2. Tap Installed app > All,
3. Find and tap the Messaging app.
4. On the App info screen, tap the Enable button at the bottom of the screen.
Ethan, I have a redmi 2. I disabled my messaging app. I did what you said. The enable button is not functioning. Force stop works but enable option does not. Can you help me.
You can ask for more opinions in the official MIUI forum. Most probably you need to reset the phone to factory settings or reinstall (reflash) the firmware.

Hi Ethan, I think I found a right person to answer my queries… I just deleted screen shot folder and I can’t able to save screen shot pictures…it displays could not save it is in use…and another problem that I am facing is my music player cracks after 4 seconds when lights are off ..please resolve my problems
I don’t know which phone and version of MIUI you’re using. Kindly update your phone to the latest firmware. If you’ve accidentally deleted the Screenshots folder, by right the phone will create it automatically when you capture a screenshot. As for the Music player, it seems like a bug to me.
Hi, I am new to the Redmi 4G.
Can kindly advice on How to remove installed wallpaper for HomeScreen and Lockscreen, under the category list. Guess is pre-installed in the smartphone.
I don’t think we’re given the option to delete these pre-installed wallpapers. But, with root access to your phone you might be able to do so to remove the image files.
thanks Ethan, but how to do root access to the phone and is there any risk for doing root access?
While rooting will void the warranty for most of the brands, but many discussions in the MIUI forum have emphasized that it isn’t the case for Xiaomi devices. Personally, I don’t cover this topic, you should be able to get plenty of resources on this topic in MIUI forum.

In Redmi 1S phone is there any option to set call/msg mis event reminder? If it is available, tell me how to set in the phone
1. Missed call reminder = Yes. Here’s how to set it.
2. But, as far as I know, there isn’t message reminder on the current version of MIUI.
I have deleted the messaging icon and timer on the theme by accidentally. Please help me to restore the icon.
As far as I know if your phone isn’t rooted, you can’t delete the Messaging app. Did you remember how you delete it ? What do you mean by timer ?
If you’ve accidentally disable Messaging instead of deleting it, here’s the guide to enable it back.
