    Hi,

    I accidently put a web page on my Home Screen when I only ment to bookmark it. So now I want to delete it but I don't see any way to do it.

    Thanks,
    Sailorman

    Hold down your finger on an app until they all wiggle. Then delete what you wish.

    Tap the Home button

    [​IMG]

    When you get a chance, download a copy of the iPad User Guide. It is available for free in several different formats.

    a) As a free PDF download from the Apple website --
    http://support.apple.com/manuals/#ipad

    [​IMG]

    This can (and should!) be saved on your computer and your iPad.

    b) As a free iBook once you download the free iBook app from the iTunes App Store.

    c) Online using the link provided in the Safari favorites on your iPad.

    The answers to many questions, especially if this is your first Apple mobile "iDevice", can be answered by spending some quality time with this handy document.

    Well ~ an x typically means, close out, delete. A plus, no clue what that means.

    So which is it? You could be correct ~ No clue, actually. But from your attitude, me thinks I am.

    :D

    Is it necessary to be so nit-picky? I hope not.
