    I do not understand what your problem is. You can add several pages to the iPad for keeping more apps. Or you can join several apps together into a file cluster that you can name, or will self name. Any time you download an app to the iPad, it will find a place to be.

    I have made room for my apps now by putting them in folders and now I don't know how to get the other apps that I had already purchased onto the desktop
    The only way I can access them is through search

    I have the same problem. The issue is not that there is no room for additional icons to show. The issue is that the app icon is not visible on the screen. To open the app you must go to the search screen to find it. Once you search for the app and launch it you can see it in the bottom bar to switch over to the app. But the icon will not display on the screen. Hopefully, one of you have come up with a solution for this issue.

    Have you tried swiping right to left while on the home screen to reveal the second home page?

    I currently have 6 screens of apps. So that is not the problem.

    It has to be in one of the folders which you created-if you are able to locate the app on your ipad when you use the Search function. Try looking into your folders to see if it is in one of the files. Than you can pull it out and have it stand alone as how you want it.

    You still won't be able to see them on your iPad until you connect to itunes and move them onto the available spaces or into a folder.

    In iTunes on your computer, the apps can be seen in many forms. You can go through the apps and find which folder they are in, if you forget. Since you have the option of how to name your folders, yo can give yourself clues as to which folder they are in. For example, I have several apps for weather, so they are in one folder, another for various news apps, and one for my various navigation apps. And with the number of pages available, you can also cluster the folders according to various needs.
