    There is no History folder in my Bookmarks. Could I have done something to delete it? Can I recreate it? I'm a new iPad 4 owner, HELP!

    When you tap on bookmarks, can you see the "clock" symbol between the bookmarks and reading list? That's your history. Haven't checked, but make sure you haven't turned on Private Browsing (Settings/Safari/Private Browsing). That may disable the History tab, since Private Browsing doesn't keep a history.

    As Kevin pointed out, the history can be accessed via the clock symbol between the bookmarks and reading list. The history tab is still present when Private Browsing is enabled, it's just that the tab remains empty. If the clock symbol is missing, try restarting the Safari app and/or the iPad.

    Thanks for checking that, Goofy. I wasn't sure whether the tab would disappear. An easy way to check whether you are private browsing is the black menu bar. Usually it is grey.

    Thanks to you both! I did turn off Private Browsing, and I found history on the Bookmarks tab...good to go, and learning more everyday...I'm addicted to my iPad!
    Thanks again! Have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
