    I inadvertently created two home screens that are blank. How do I delete these extra home screen pages?

    Welcome to the forum! I'm not quite sure what you're saying, but it sounds like you have a blank screen or two...without any app icons? If so you should be able to just turn you iPad off and back on and end up with only screens that have icons.

    Restart the iPad: Press and hold down the Sleep/wake switch on the top edge of the iPad for few seconds until the red slider appears, slide this across to shut the iPad down. Restart the iPad by pressing the Sleep/wake switch until the Apple logo appears.

    If that doesn't work you could try syncing your iPad with iTunes on your computer to resolve it.

    If that still doesn't work a reset might be in order...

    Reset the iPad: You can do this by pressing the Home button and the Sleep/wake switch on the top the iPad's case and holding them down together for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo. The iPad should then reset itself. The boot up process takes a few minutes and then the iPad should be responsive again. More here:
