Understanding the Home Screen
The iPad Home Screen stores all your apps and folders. It has two sections. The Dock at the bottom stays the same with your favourite and most used apps. The other section contains multiple pages of apps. You can swipe left or right to navigate. Organizing your Home Screen helps you stay organized and be efficient.
Creating folders is easy.
- Drag one app onto another app while on the Home Screen.
- Both will enter the same folder box.
- Tap it and type a name.
- Drag multiple apps into the folder to keep everything organized.
Identify the app icons
To create a folder on your iPad, start by identifying the app icons you want to include. Look on the home screen and tap and hold an icon. All the icons will then jiggle. Drag them to wherever you want them. If an app is not installed, drag it to an empty space and it’ll download. After that, it’s time to make the folder.
Locate the “Folder” icon
Find the “Folder” icon on your iPad Home Screen. It’s in the list of apps. Scroll to spot it. Tap it and it will open as a new folder.
To fill it, tap and drag items from your home screen. When done, hit the black circle with an X. The folder is ready for use!
Creating a Folder
Organize your apps, documents and data by creating folders on your iPad. Here’s how:
- Go to the Home screen. Pick an app to put in the folder.
- Tap and hold the app icon. It will start to jiggle, with a black ‘X‘ in the top-right corner.
- Move all the apps you want in the folder. They’ll form a stack. This will make a folder title automatically.
- Tap the name at the top and enter any title you want. That’s it! You’ve created a folder on your iPad!
Tap and hold an app icon
Tap and hold an app icon on the iPad home screen to bring up two options. Select “Create Folder” to name and add desired apps. You can also drag one app onto another to create the folder. Tap outside of it when done.
To add or remove items from the folder, drag them in or out. To access an item, tap its icon or swipe left or right. To delete the folder, drag all its items out and then remove it from the home screen.
Drag and drop the app icon onto the “Folder” icon
Adding favorites to bookmarks on your iPad is easy. Create a folder first. Press and hold an app’s icon until all apps shake. Drag and drop the icon onto the “Folder” icon at the bottom of the display. Name the folder. Drag and drop all apps or websites you want in that folder. This creates a new bookmark folder with all those links. You can easily navigate to them quickly.
Name the folder
Want to make a folder on your iPad? First, give it a name. Keep it brief and clear. Like “Files” for documents or text-based data. “Photos” for pics and other media. And “Apps” so people know what’s inside without opening it.
Once you pick a name, you’re ready to create the folder.
Adding Apps to the Folder
Tap and hold an app to jiggle it. Then, drag and drop it onto another app to create a folder. You can add up to nine other apps to create shortcuts that appear on your home screen. Just drag and drop other apps into the same folder. There’s no limit to how many apps you can add.
When finished, press the home button and the new folders will show on your home page!
Tap and hold an app icon
Tap and hold an app icon on your iPad. All other apps on the screen will jiggle. Drag the app onto the folder you want to add it to. This creates a copy of the original app. Release your finger from the screen. This adds a copy of the app to the folder.
To delete, open up the folder. Tap and hold an individual icon. All icons in the folder will jiggle. Drag each app out of the folder. Delete them as needed!
Drag and drop the app icon onto the folder
To make a folder on your iPad, open the App Library. Find the app you want to move. Tap and hold it. Wiggle it. Drag it onto another app located in the same folder. This creates a new folder with both apps.
To add more apps, drag them into the folder. When you’re done, press the Home button. Now you have your custom folder!
Moving the Folder
Moving folders on an iPad is easy with these steps!
- Tap and hold the folder you want to move.
- Drag it up to where you want it on the screen.
- Then, drop it there by tapping and holding until it’s in the right spot.
If you need help, tap Help at the top of the screen. With practice, you’ll be able to move folders around with ease!
Tap and hold the folder
Creating folders on your iPad is a breeze! Go to the Home Screen and select two or more apps. Hold down your finger on an app icon until they jiggle. Without lifting your finger, drag one app onto another. This will combine them into a folder. Then, quickly tap the folder twice and a box with its name will appear. Type in the name and press “Done“!
You can now fill your iPad with folders. This makes it easy to find apps quickly.
Drag and drop the folder onto the desired location
Creating a folder on your iPad is easy. Select the app icons you want to organize. These should be on the Home Screen. Press and hold one of them. All the icons will begin to jiggle. Drag that app icon onto another icon. This will create a new folder. Tap on it twice and enter a name for it in the box that pops up. Drop the folder onto its desired location. It can be on your Home Screen or within an app’s library of content. You can rearrange everything according to preference. Done!
Deleting the Folder
To delete a folder from your iPad, just follow these steps!
- Open the Files app.
- Locate the folder you wish to delete.
- Tap and hold the folder until a menu of options appears.
- Select ‘Delete’ from the menu.
- Confirm the deletion. You will be asked if you want to delete all files within the folder too. If yes, select ‘Delete All Files’. Or choose ‘Do Not Delete Files’ to keep the files.
- Your folder is now deleted!
Tap and hold the folder
Tap and hold your finger over the app you want to move, or where you’d like a new folder. After a few moments, an “X” appears in the top-left corner of all apps on the home screen. Begin dragging and dropping them into one another. Release your finger and iOS will generate a folder with all those apps. Tap the folder and press “Rename” or “Delete” at the bottom of the screen to make changes.
Drag and drop the folder onto the “Delete” icon
Drag and drop your folder onto the “Delete” icon to quickly create a folder on your iPad. It clones the file, giving it the same name. This is great if you have lots of files that need sorting. Or, drop multiple files at once to make multiple folders in one go!
Unfortunately, this only works with files in your iCloud Drive, not an external one like Dropbox or Google Drive. You’ll need an app like FileExplorer+ for those. But if you want to organize stuff from your iPad iCloud Drive, like pictures and notes, this drag-and-drop method is perfect!
