How do I add / delete a website shortcut to my iPad Home screen?

A "Safari shortcut" is a link that appears on your Home screen. When you tap a shortcut it launches Safari and takes you directly to the website for that shortcut. Adding a shortcut to your favorite website from your iPad's Home screen is easy. Here's how:

1. Open Safari
2. Visit the website you want to add to your Home screen
3. Tap the share button (arrow pointing up on iOS 7 or later) at the top of your screen
4. Tap the "Add to Home Screen" option from the pop up box
5. Enter a title for your shortcut and tap "Add"

You can delete a website shortcut the same was you delete an app. Hold your finger down on the icon until it begins to wiggle and then tap the little x that appears.
