Google Reader is my main RSS feed reader. It is online 24/7 and catches all my subscribed feeds everyday. Google Reader does not installed on my computer and so I don’t lose any hard disk space because all the feeds are stored in Google server. Google Reader is fast and convenient, but it lacks one feature that I think it is very useful, folders or tags renaming function.
Although Google Reader does not support that feature, but there is a way to rename or move your RSS feeds to another folder. Let say we want to rename Folder A to Folder B. Here is how to do it.
- Go to Settings and click on the Subscriptions tab.
- In “Filter by name, tag, or URL” field, enter the current folder name that you want to rename to filter out that folder. Eg: Folder A.
- In “Change folder…” dropdown list, choose New Folder… and enter the new folder name. Eg: Folder B.
- Now, click “All # subscriptions” to select all feeds under Folder A and choose Folder B in More actions… dropdown list to add that feeds into Folder B.
- Without deselect the selected feeds, choose Folder A from Remove tag under More actions… dropdown list.
Now, your feeds are moved or renamed to Folder B. So far, I only know this way to rename folders or tags in Google Reader. If you found any other easier method, please share it with us.
