Some apps moved to settings; how can I get them to home page

I thought my problems were solved, but now I have a new one.  Some of my apps disappeared.  I found them in settings.  How can I get them back to my
homepages and how did this happen?

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!

  • Updated to iOS 7, but only the first page of my app buttons stayed.  How can I get them back?

    I just updated to iOS 7, but only the first page of my app buttons stayed.  How can I get them back?  And how do I show the Apple Music and Weather app- I can find them in spotlight, but there isn't an app button for them.

    Are you sure you don't see them when you swipe to the left?
    I actually had only one icon showing on the second page .... and then all of the rest showed up on pages 3, 4, etc.
    The Apple Music app is a red box with a white note
    Weather app is a blue box with a white cloud and yellow sun
    Did you try resetting or restarting the device?

  • Bottom row greyed out and apps moved - why ? How do I get them back to where they belong ?

    bottom row greyed out and apps moved - why ? How do I get them back to where they belong ? Have no idea how this happened.  At first it seemed the apps - phone, safari, mail - were LOST.  But they were moved up with all the others. 

    Thanks for your response.
    However I managed to figure out how to recover - it's just a matter of moving them back to the bottom row 'dock' !  So it's actually very easy.  I was 'thrown' by this unexpected development - don't know how it happened - but it's a 'non-issue' now.  Hopefully my next post or question - if I have one - will be more 'substantive'!

    Hey ramsrocket,
    To get back those apps, follow these directions:
    Tap App Store.
    Make sure you're signed in with the same Apple ID used for the original purchase.
    Tap Updates.
    Tap Purchased on the resulting screen.
    Locate the app in your Purchased tab.
    Tap the download icon.
    The app will begin downloading and you'll be taken back to your home screen.

    Take care,

  • How can I get just my home page to come up when Firefox starts. I don't want to see all the pages for my extensions plus the "Welcome to Firefox Page." I have 5 pages open every time that I don't want.

    Firefox Welcome Page
    Download Helper Extension Page
    Google Shortcuts Extension Page
    Download Status Bar Extension Page
    This happens each and every time Firefox opens, whether there is a new update or not. I currently have these extensions disabled until I can resolve this issue.

    Open Firefox preferences/options. On the General tab you can specify what Firefox should do when it starts. I would guess that you have "Show my windows and tabs from last time" selected. Select "Show my home page" and set your home page in the text box.

  • When we backed up iphone on new computer all photos, apps were lost.  how can we get them back?

    When I tried to back up my phone on itunes, on a new computer, somehow I lost all of my photos, apps, everything.  I have no clue how to retrieve them or if I accidentally deleted them when I restored the phone.  Can anyone help me?

    If you backed up the device, you should be able to recover it from the backup unless you somehow deleted the backup.  See if it isn't recognized by iTunes, then restore it from backup.

  • 10.8.2 has deleted my user settings how can i get them back?

    I logged on to find that my desktop had changed. I launched itunes and there were no songs there. I checked Macintosh HD/users to find that there weren't any folders there. I've looked at my disk usage and there is 160gb unaccounted for, so maybe there's hope to recover my lost data.
    10.8.2 running on Mac mini "Core 2 Duo" 2.53 (Late 2009).

    Maybe this will help:

    Hello Jo Pru
    Check out the article below to troubleshoot issues with sending email from Mail for Mac. Check in Connection Doctor to see if there is anything that could be preventing from sending it out. Also look to see if how big the email is as that could be an issue with the message sending out.

    You can transfer contents from your iPhone back to iTunes library:
    First, *BEFORE you connect the iPhone, please go to the iTunes preferences and select "devices", then select "disable automatic syncing for iPad, iPhones and iPods"*.
    Then, for those songs that you purchased on your iPhone: Transfer purchases from iPod to iTunes.
    For all other non purchased contents (your photos etc), their are ton of third party programs, some is free: iDump, Floola. Some is shareware, but they does preserve playlist/ratings/playcounts/artworks etc: iCopyBot, CopyTrans

  • I delete my camara app on my 4s how can i get it back

    i delete my camara app on my 4s how can i get it back i delete it from da home screen bt when serch it i can c it bt i wants da app on my hm screen

    You cannot delete the camera app, it is a native app to the iOS. It may have been moved to another screen accidentally, or you could have restrictions on, and that would make the camera app unavailable. Check your other home screens, or you can go into Settings>General>Reset>Reset Home Screen Layout and that will bring the native apps back. To check and see if you have restrictions on, go to Settings>General>Restrictions. If they are on, they need to be turned off, but you will need whatever password you used to turn them on. A simple reset of the iPhone might also bring it back, do that by holding down the sleep/wake and home buttons together until you see the Apple logo and then release. After iPhone restarts, check.
