Web Site Icon on Home Screen

Dear Computer Lady,

When I am using my computer, I like to keep shortcuts to websites on my desktop. I think it is easier to find them that way.

Is there a way to create shortcuts to my favorite websites on my iPad desktop?

Thank you for any help you can give me.


Dear Harriet,

Yes there is a way to put shortcuts to your favorite websites on your iPad’s home screen.

Simply go to a site that you want to save, and then tap the icon with the arrow that points to the right.

A list of functions will appear.

Tap the icon that says, “Add to Home Screen”.

Type a name for your shortcut if you don’t like the name provided for you.

Tap the “Add” button.

You will now have an icon for your web site on your home screen.
