1. A method implemented at a portable multifunction device with a touch screen display, comprising:

  • identifying a first group of user interface objects and a second group of user interface objects, wherein said first group corresponds to a first file system folder, and said second group corresponds to a second file system folder distinct from the first file system folder, and whereina respective user interface object in the first group of user interface objects is associated with a corresponding data file in the first file system folder, anda respective user interface object in the second group of user interface objects is associated with a corresponding data file in the second file system folder; and

    automatically displaying objects associated with the first group and the second group in response to the device determining that the first group and the second group meet predefined conditions, including;

    in response to the device determining that the first group and the second group meet a first predefined condition, distinct from a second predefined condition and a third predefined condition, automatically concurrently displaying on the touch screen displayobjects in the first group of user interface objects,a label for the first group of user interface objects,objects in the second group of user interface objects, anda label for the second group of user interface objects while maintaining data files that correspond to the first group of user interface objects in the first file system folder and data files that correspond to the second group of user interface objects in the second file system folder;

    in response to the device determining that the first group and the second group meet the second predefined condition, distinct from the first predefined condition and the third predefined condition, automatically concurrently displaying on the touch screen displaya first group icon that corresponds to the first group of user interface objects without concurrently displaying objects in the first group of user interface objects, andobjects in the second group of user interface objects,while maintaining the data files that correspond to the first group of user interface objects in the first file system folder and the data files that correspond to the second group of user interface objects in the second file system folder; and

    in response to the device determining that the first group and the second group meet the third predefined condition, distinct from the first predefined condition and the second predefined condition, automatically concurrently displaying on the touch screen displaythe first group icon that corresponds to the first group of user interface objects without concurrently displaying objects in the first group of user interface objects anda second group icon that corresponds to the second group of user interface objects without concurrently displaying objects in the second group of user interface objects while maintaining the data files that correspond to the first group of user interface objects in the first file system folder and the data files that correspond to the second group of user interface objects in the second file system folder,wherein the first, second, and third predefined conditions are each based on at least one of the number of objects in the first group of user interface objects and the number of objects in the second group of user interface objects.
