You can reset the home page by tapping Settings / General / Reset / Rest Home Screen Layout
To move apps from one screen to another, connect your iPad to your computer, launch iTunes, select the Apps from the menu.
You can drag apps from one screen to another then click Sync

Thank you, thank you! I got them all back to the right place. So glad to know that I can rearrange them in iTunes; that's a lot easier than sliding them around on the screen.

Carolyn, I don't see a place to give you credit for a very correct answer. Am I missing it....it's possible with my blurry vision from 4 days on the iPad. If there's a place to grade you let me know.

I think that you can only award 'correct' or 'helpful' answers on a question, not on a discussion as this appears to be (so you can't give me 'helpful' for this reply )

Can I just add that the apps had not "been moved to Settings". What you have in Settings is the place to change settings for those apps, not the apps themselves.

Thanks....yes, I realized this after Carolyn explained how apps work. I am not new to computers or to macs, but I AM new to apps, and I'm struggling with learning how they work. I had noticed that they were no longer on my homepage, and then, in searching around for them, I saw them in settings. Then the question was: how the heck do I get them where I want them? Didn't even think about them being in iTunes! I love knowing I can shuffle the apps around there instead of trying to slide them from one home page to another (not easy in my view!).
I have to say that without this discussion board, I would never have figured out this iPad. 15 years ago I bought my first computer and learned the whole thing on my own without any tutoring, but this iPad is totally confusing. I am just now beginning to see how it works and am actually just now beginning to do a little troubleshooting without help. But, it's been a long, hard road!

Janice .... Just a little tip on moving apps around on the iPad itself.
When you hold down on the app icon and it begins to wiggle, you can now move the app as well already know. When you move the app icon, move it to the edge of the screen and just hold it there for a couple of seconds - sort of hold it about halfway over to the next screen. It takes maybe ... maybe two seconds but then the app will just "jump" to the next screen. Takes a little practice and patience.
If you know this already, my apologies. I see you many users struggling with this action and I just wanted to pass that info along to you.

I sort of figured it out on my own, but I wish I'd asked you first, because it was the most frustrating thing I've done! I found myself pushing the crazy app across the screen and then giving it one final push to the next screen. It was me against the app and it was winning. Suddenly, I detected the automatic switching to the next screen. What we all need is a book where all these questions are answered by some of you. I notice that everyone has the same questions...and the user manual is worthless for the beginner. The beginner rarely gets to the skill level that the manual deals with...we're back at "what's an app?" and "how do I turn on this iPad?."
I don't see a place to grade you either. What's going on? In every other discussion there's always been the opportunity to grade...the last two days I haven't had that.

Don't worry about the points. We are just trying to help you get comfortable with the iPad.
King Penguin explained this in his post above. You started a "Discussion" rather than posting a "question". Points and grading are possible when asking a question but not when posting a discussion.
That's not the issue here anyway - getting answers for your problems are what the site is for. Its nice to know that you are considerate enough to care about rewarding points. Enjoy your iPad, keep plugging away (you will get the hang of it) and post a question if you need help in the future!

Do you have the iPad Users Guide through the iBooks Store? You should also get iPad 2 Starters Guide from MacWorld. Both are free and provide a low impact way of seeing what the iPad should be able to do.
