Safari Start Page

[ad] Dear Computer lady,

I have a problem with my iPad 3 that I need help with, please.

I thought I was bookmarking some sites for my favorites list and they ended up on my Safari page as a box with their name site in it.

I can’t find a way to delete them from that page! Can you help?

Thank you, Irene

Dear Irene,

When you open a new, blank web page in Safari, instead of a blank page, it displays a page full of shortcuts to the sites that you have saved bookmarks for.

The only way to delete these boxes would be to remove them from your bookmarks.

I looked through the settings for Safari, but I did not see a way to change what you see when you open a new web page in Safari. If anyone else knows of a way, please share it with us!
