Folder grouping allow you to browse your games grouped into folders. Almost any field in Game Collector can be set as a folder group option.

Game Collector comes with a variety of pre-set folder group sets, but you can also create your own Saved Folder Presets.

Selecting a Folder view

To start viewing your games grouped in folders:

  • Click on menu View > Folders, and then pick one of the pre-sets.

Game Collector then automatically groups all your games into folders based on the information it has on those games.

If you wish to disable folders, click View > Folders > No Folders.

Define your own Folder views

You can define your own folder views via the Folder Field Selection screen.

  • Click _View > Folders > Manage Folder Presets
  • Click Create new preset to create a completely new preset.
  • Checkbox the fields you wish to folder group on.

In your list of Folder Presets you can also modify or delete existing presets, and you can drag/drop them up/down the list.

The [None] Folder

When selecting certain Folder Sets, you may notice the [None] folder at the top of the list.

The [None] folder contains games in your collection that have not been assigned a value for the folder set you’ve selected. For example, if you have selected Genre folders, the [None] Folder will contain games in your collection that do not have a Genre assigned. If the Subject folders are selected, then the [None] folder contains games that do not have a subject, etc.

To remove items from the [None] Folder, you will need to specify a value for the game that appears in the [None] Folder. Open the Edit Game screen and enter something for that field, the game will then be moved out of the [None] Folder.

Important to know:

Q: How do I create a new folder?
A: You don’t actually “create” folders in your main screen. Folder grouping happens automatically based on what information you have for your games.

Example: If you are using “Genre” folders right now, and you set “Comedy” as a Genre for a game, that game will appear in the “Comedy” folder.

Q: How do I move games to another folder?
A: Example: Wish to move the game from the “Comedy” genre folder to the “Horror” genre folder?
To do this, Edit the game and uncheck “Comedy” as a genre, and then check “Horror” as genre. Hit OK and it will now be in the “Horror” folder in your main screen.

Q: Why do I see my game in multiple folders?
A: Example: If an game has multiple genres, it will appear in multiple genre folders.
