How to Clip a Web Page from Your iPad's Browser

You can use Web Clips to add a web page's icon to your Home screen on your iPad's browser. You probably frequent lots of websites, but some way more than others. You might constantly be online to consult your daily train schedule, for example.

In their infinite wisdom, the folks at Apple let you bestow special privileges on frequently visited sites, not just by bookmarking pages but also by affording them their unique Home screen icons. Apple used to call these Web Clips.

Creating one is dead simple. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the web page in question, and tap the Action button.

  2. Tap Add to Home Screen.

    Apple creates an icon out of the area of the page that was displayed when you saved the clip, unless the page has its own custom icon.

  3. Type a new name for your Web Clip or leave the one that Apple suggests.

  4. Tap Add.

    The icon appears on your Home screen.

As with any icon, you can remove a Web Clip by pressing and holding its icon until it starts to wiggle. Then tap the X in the corner of the icon and tap Delete. Of course, you can also move the Web Clip to a more preferred location on one of your Home screens or on your Dock.
