Nintendo has announced a patch to the Switch that helps to solve some issues that players were experiencing. The biggest change in this patch comes with the ability to organize files into folders, something that many users have been waiting for since the console was released five years ago. These folders allow players to group games together and make the process much quicker than scrolling through every downloaded game.
Nintendo gives a clear rundown of the changes made in the patch on their website. The company also provided instructions on how to set up the folders in another portion of their website’s customer support. The new folders can be organized in the All Software tab of the console settings. The files can then be organized by creating folders to group together specific games.
The bad news of this patch is that the game folders are only available to be organized in the All Software section. This portion of the settings is only available in settings and cannot be accessed directly from the home screen. Players will have to open the settings and navigate to All Software to view the organized files.
In addition to the new files, the Nintendo Switch patch also brought some changes to bluetooth devices. Nintendo announced that the max volume of some devices can now be increased based on the connected device. As a precaution, the company notes that the volume will automatically reset when the device disconnects.
Similarly, the Switch will now allow users to adjust the volume on the bluetooth device if it comes with a volume selector. Previously, players could only adjust the volume on the actual consoles. This small change will make changing the volume for bluetooth players much simpler than having to adjust the console.
Both of these changes are incredibly user friendly and will likely make the player’s experience much better than in the past.
