    Does iPad allow you to create folders for icons on the desk top home page? If so, how do you create them? Thanks.

    Just drop one icon onto another. A folder will be made which you can rename if you wish.

    If you change your mind about the name for a folder, you can rename a folder anytime after its creation by pressing and holding any icon or folder until they all start to "Wiggle", then tap the folder you want to rename, it will open and you will notice an x to the right of the name, tap the x and the current name will be erased and you can type in the new name. You can also move folders onto the Taskbar at the bottom of Homescreen while everything is Wiggling. There is a maximum of four icons/folders on the Taskbar.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what "taskbar" do you refer to? :)
    Never mind. I see you refer to the Dock.

    I think he meant the dock.

    Correct Napoleon. I guess I've been using MS Windows too long. However, my iPhone and iPad are slowly bringing me to the "Dark Side" (according to MS) of computing.
