Add a Link to a Website to Your iPad Home Page


If you like to visit the same Web pages over and over, then it can be tedious to type the address of that page every time. Fortunately there are options available that allow you to save a link to that Web page so that you only need to select the link on your iPad. One of these options is to create a Web page link on your iPad’s home screen which will automatically open that page in the Safari browser when you touch it.

 

Add a Web Page to Your Home Screen on the iPad

Note that you are creating a link to a specific page that will appear on your home screen like a new app would. If you decide later that you want to delete that link, simply touch and hold the icon, then touch the “x” at the top-left corner of the icon.

Step 1: Open the Safari browser.
