How do I get rid of Bookmarks on my iPad screen?

Answered by Cody Janus

To get rid of the bookmarks sidebar on your iPad screen, there are a few simple steps you can follow.

1. Tap the book icon: At the top left corner of your iPad screen, you will see a book icon. This icon represents the bookmarks sidebar. By tapping on it, you can easily turn the bookmarks sidebar on and off. When the sidebar is enabled, you will see a list of your bookmarks on the left side of the screen. Tapping the book icon again will hide the sidebar.

2. Use the keyboard shortcut: If you prefer using keyboard shortcuts, you can also hide the bookmarks sidebar by pressing a combination of keys. Simply press the command key, the shift key, and the letter B on your iPad keyboard simultaneously. This keyboard shortcut will toggle the visibility of the bookmarks sidebar, allowing you to easily hide or show it as needed.

Personal Experience: As an iPad user myself, I often find the bookmarks sidebar to be a convenient feature for quickly accessing my favorite websites. However, there are times when I prefer a clutter-free screen, especially when I’m reading or browsing content. In such situations, I find it helpful to hide the bookmarks sidebar temporarily. The book icon and the keyboard shortcut mentioned above have been my go-to methods for quickly getting rid of the sidebar and enjoying a clean iPad screen.

In summary, to remove the bookmarks sidebar from your iPad screen, you can either tap the book icon at the top left corner or use the keyboard shortcut command + shift + B. These methods allow you to easily toggle the visibility of the sidebar, giving you control over whether or not it appears on your screen.
