In my opinion, one of the problems with Photoshop is that Photoshop does not have the ability to mask a folder on a single layer, and to merge the files of that folder.

Please explain what you mean exactly, maybe add some screenshots to clarify. 

In particular what you mean by 
to merge the files of that folder
seems mystifying to me.

I want to mask that group without having to merge the layers of a group on one layer.

Do you mean mask a group(of layers) and merge within that group?

You can already mask a group. The same way in which you can mask a layer.

It seems none of us understand what you want to say. Could you post an image that shows that you'd like to achieve so we can imagine it (at least me), and perhaps somehow help...

I feel stupid. Now we know you want to use not regular mask, but clipping mask. Probably on a group, not on layer like it's shown on image? Isn't Jerry Syder answer that you want - using normal mask on a group, that you don't have to merge layers inside then?

Sorry, my English is not good and I am getting help from the Google Translator. So I might mean it's a mistake.

Because I misunderstood him, and I thought he understood what I mean.

I recieved few empty messages from you. But then after I replied for one of them you were able to answer back. So at least you can talk after someone contact you first or react for your attempt to say anything.

I did not get it right. If you have a telegram or an instagram, we can communicate with each other there.

Yes, and the problem is that it does not exist. Unless we merge the layers in the group.
One can also convert the Group to a Smart Object, thus maintaining Layers’ edibility, though not immediate edibility.

I mean, the lack of this feature is a weakness.

If you were able to answer to my private message on that forum it seems you got it right way. If not what do you mean be that?
