How to Manage Bookmarks on Your iPad mini

By Edward C. Baig, Bob LeVitus

You may have a long list of your favorite sites bookmarked on your iPad mini. If a bookmarked site is no longer meaningful, you can change it or get rid of it:

  • To remove a bookmark (or folder), tap the bookmarks icon and then tap Edit. Tap the red circle next to the bookmark you want to toss off the list, and then tap Delete.

    To remove a single bookmark or folder, swipe its name from left to right and then tap the red Delete button.

  • To change a bookmark name or location, tap Edit at the bottom-right corner of the Bookmarks window. Tap a given bookmark, and an Edit Bookmark window appears, with the name, URL, and location of the bookmark already filled in. Tap the fields you want to change. In the Name field, tap the X in the gray circle and then use the keyboard to enter a new title.

    In the Location field, tap the > symbol and scroll up or down the list until you find a new home for your bookmark.

  • To create a new folder for your bookmarks, tap Edit and then tap New Folder. Enter the name of the new folder, and choose where to put it.

  • To move a bookmark up or down in a list, tap Edit and then drag the three bars to the right of the bookmark’s name to its new resting place.

If you take advantage of iCloud, the web pages you’ve bookmarked on your Mac and on your other iOS devices will be available on the mini, and vice versa.
