Does the platform support folders?

Is it possible to make folders in the platform to group applications?

Not Yet

Not yet, that's coming in an upcoming release. You can right-click and make some apps Favorites to move them to the top of the list (like pinning to the start menu in Windows) to help organize your apps in the 1.6 release which is being posted in a couple hours, though.

Any ETA on this?
I asked a question similar regarding cascading menus 4 years ago.

There are alternatives

You could use alternatives, like PAM Mod (R34) or geek.menu, they're both compatible with the official PAM release and support categories as well.

Not Quite

Neither support the current PortableApps.com Format. This will become more of an issue as time goes on.

Only as a temporary solution

I suppose, the official PAM shall read the category of an application from the appinfo.ini file, right? In opposition, geek.menu creates it's own .ini file right beside the SomeApplicationPortable.exe file (I do not have a clue how the R34 handle this).

So in terms you're right, these menus aren't clear "solutions" but temporary workarounds, 'till the arrive of the official one, but they're work.

And a question, do you have any hotkey functionality in plans? Something like PStart does, a user-defined hotkey combination (Ctrl+Alt+I for example) which launch a specified application?

Years Ago!!!

I also asked years ago, the no folder current version is unusable unless you have a handful of apps.
