At some point you are going to need to organize your bookmarks on your iPad.   Here are two common task that you may want to perform:

  • Moving a bookmark within the same folder
  • Moving a bookmark to a new folder

Moving a bookmark within the same folder is especially useful for the Bookmark Bar folder. First click on the Bookmark icon and then click the "Edit" icon:

Now we are going to move the "Save to Pocket" bookmark to the top. Select the "square" with three lines and "drag and drop" the bookmark to the desired position:

Select "Done" when you are finished moving the bookmarks.

The next case is when you want to move a bookmark to another folder. You cannot "drag and drop" the bookmark to a different folder. We are going to move a bookmark from the Bookmark Bar to the main Bookmark folder. As above click on the "Bookmark" icon and then click the "Edit" Button. This time we are going to click on the right chevron ">" :
