    I can get my icons to jiggle, but delete does not work. I have to reset the Ipad to get back on.
    I installed the Icon with Safari from the Internet.

    Which icons are you trying to delete? The stock apps that come with a new iPad cannot be deleted. If you go to Settings>General>Restrictions, you can turn off some of the stock apps so they don't show on the home screen, but you can't delete them. Here's a screenshot showing the page in restrictions where you can turn off functionality for some of the stock apps. image.jpg

    What you're trying to delete, then is a homescreen bookmark. You should be able to delete these just like you can delete apps purchased from the App Store. This is what you should see when you tap the x at the upper left corner of the icon. image.jpg
    Tapping the delete button in the pop up is supposed to delete the bookmark. Does this pop up with the delete button appear?

    Do not see the pop-up that says Delete Icon. Nothing happens when I tap the delete button on the Google Icon.

    I found something that may help. If you have restrictions enabled, go to Settings>General>Restrictions and turn restrictions off, then try deleting the icons. If it works, turn restrictions on again after deleting the icons.
