    This post is giving me a headache!
    You're in control of that. Don't like it, don't click it. Problem solved.

    Some of us have figured out how it works, and are pointing out the inconsistency. Others want to complain about posts that they chose to read.

    Maybe Microsoft chose to make the folders function this way. I think its excellent how they expand and contract the tiles inside.

    You like it. Great. Some of us like consistency. When hitting one button does two different things that's inconsistent. But I don't want to give you a headache.

    I would say Live Folders is the finished product. MS should ignore those people who have a problem because they think it is 'inconsistent', and I'm sure they will...
    Live Folders function how they should, so let's move on and leave the OCD for another more important topic....

    @ the start screen, when you press the back button it always used to go to the apps open in background. FYI, when your live folders are expanded its just your start screen only and not in edit mode of start screen. The back button should be taking to the previously opened app and not contract the live folders. What inconsistency are you talking about? If you press back button again from the background app you will see the screen with live folders in contracted mode only. The ui flow looks normal to me!!

    How do you get Live Folders ? Using a Lumia 930 and 1520(why buy a tablet when you can have both😊) both running 8.1 with Cyan. Can't seem to find it in app store?

    Way to be open-minded and non-condescending.
    Oops - that's the opposite. Never mind.

    It isn't an app. Just drag one tile on top of another and a folder is created.

    Nope.

    Face it. Some people like to spin the wheel and see what they get. Some of us like to tap the back button and KNOW what it is going to do.

    Well fortunately some of us DO know what is going to happen when they hit the back button. I haven't encountered anything out of the ordinary with Live Folders or anything else.
    Then again, maybe I'm not using my phone correctly...

    Some of us don't try to remember if there is something in the back stack, so hitting the back button does the unexpected. Regardless, no intelligent being can deny that live folders are inconsistent when it comes to back button behavior. It does one thing in one case, and another thing in another case. That is the definition of inconsistent. If you like it the way it is, great. I don't. Microsoft has pushed consistency in messages to developers but failed to follow their own advice here.

    I'm closing this thread. The original post has validity, but the thread has been run off-course.
