    Is there a way to change the homepage in safari? I want to have Google as my homepage instead of the safari screen with the book marks. I have an iPad air on 8.1 thanks.

    That's not possible. As soon as you remove all favorites, the Safari homepage will be blank, with just address/search bar and the icons at the top.

    How does one go about removing the sidebar on the Safari page? I've double clicked on the book icon and that didn't work. The sidebar takes up nearly half the page.

    Tap the book icon once, then it will disappear.

    I'm glad you found out what was wrong.

    Just wondering:
    In Safari, there's only one book icon, here:

    Where did you click?

    There were 2 on my iPad Air. One of them (the one I kept clicking on) is blue and is on the same line of the Safari sidebar as the eye glasses and one other icon. The other book icon is clear (but outlined in blue), which is the book icon you have referenced.
