Over the last several years, “throwback Thursday” has become quite popular.
Although it is really supposed to be about nostalgia (like old photos), I thought I’d stretch the point, and occasionally post an old (but updated!) “how to” on Thursdays, for the benefit of the many new-device-users who have joined our blog.
So, for those websites that I visit often, I skip the whole book-mark thing, and make icons for my home screen, instead.
This way, when I want to visit a favorite website, all I have to do is tap the icon.
How to Make an Icon for your Most-Used Bookmarks
Just go to the site of your choice, like “sharechair.wordpress.com”. Look to the upper left hand corner and tap on the ‘action’ box.
After tapping the arrow-box, you will see several choices. Select “add to home screen”.
Finally, select “add”.
You now have a new icon on your home screen. Just tap it whenever you want to go to your favorite website. Enjoy this quick and handy option (instead of drilling down through your bookmarks).
