Deleting a bookmark icon from home screen?

I'm having trouble deleting a bookmark icon from my home screen. I've read posts that say to touch the icons until they jiggle then touch the "x" -- problem is, the icons jiggle but no "x" appears. How do I get rid of it?

OK - not quite sure why you're not seeing the 'X' when the icons jiggle. For sure, you can't delete the apps that came with the iPad - Safari, Mail etc - so those icons jiggle, but don't have the 'X', but bookmarks should.

So let's try something which fixes a lot of problems - power the iPad down completely by pressing and holding the Power button until the slider control appears, accept the offer to switch off, wait until the iPad screen is completely blank, then switch on again by pressing and holding the Power button until the white Apple logo appears and wait until it powers up.

Now try again by pressing any icon until they jiggle and see if the 'X' has re-appeared.

Tim -- thanks for the reply, however, after my post, I stumbled on the answer. Apparently as a new iPad user I locked down my settings to avoid unintentional mishaps. My restrictions to delete apps was set to "off" -- once I set this back to the default "on" position, the "x" appeared on the icons and I was able to delete the bookmark.

Yes - I saw your other post and that you'd stumbled on the answer. I should have thought of that too...:(

Glad you got it sorted.

Have fun

Tim
