Nintendo Switch System Software Version 14 finally adds folders, with a catch

We’re bummed to say it, but they’re only in the All Software menu, nowhere else…

Nintendo have pushed out version 14.0.0 of the Nintendo Switch system software out to everyone. This introduces folders to the console for the first time, but there’s a bit of a catch: they’re only available in the “All Software” and not on the main Home menu. That’s probably going to be frustrating for some, but we felt it was important to clarify right off-the-bat.

Also added in this release were improvements to Bluetooth audio controls and the maximum Bluetooth audio volume that is able to be output from the system has also increased.

Here’s everything new in this update:

Ver. 14.0.0 (Released March 21, 2022)

“Groups” feature was added to the All Software menu.

  • You can now create groups of software to help organize your software titles.
  • Making groups for different game genres, developers, or whatever you’d like to organize by may make it easier to find the application you want.
    • Up to 100 groups can be created with a max of 200 titles per group.
  • The button to proceed to the “All Software” screen is displayed only when there are 13 or more software title icons on the system.
  • For more information, see How to Create Groups of Software.

Bluetooth® Audio volume behavior was changed.

  • You can now adjust the volume of Bluetooth audio devices using either the Nintendo Switch™ console or through volume control buttons on the Bluetooth audio device.
    • The Bluetooth audio device must support AVRCP profiles for these changes to work.
  • The volume displayed on the console will reflect the Bluetooth audio volume when using the device’s control buttons.
  • The maximum volume output for some Bluetooth audio devices has been increased.
