Q:  How to sort user-installed apps on an iPad alphabetically?

You can manually rearrange the apps on the iPad’s home screen pretty much any way you would like. If you just want to alphabetise all the programs you have installed on the tablet yourself, there is a quicker way. Start by tapping the Settings icon on the home screen.

On the Settings screen, tap General on the left side. The collection of General settings appears on the right half of the screen, so scroll down to Reset at the bottom of the list.

Tap Reset and then tap “Reset Home Screen Layout.” You will get an alert box warning that your home screen will be set back to factory defaults. Tap the Reset button.

When you press the iPad’s Home button to leave the Settings area, you will see all of Apple’s default apps for the iPad in their out-of-the-box arrangement on the first home screen. 

Flip to the next screen, however, and all of your downloaded and purchased apps are now in alphabetical order.

If you would like to fine-tune the placement and sort your apps by hand, you can do it that way instead. Just press and hold your finger on an app’s icon for a few seconds until all the icons on the screen begin to gently wiggle. In this mode, you can drag apps and bookmark icons to new locations on the screen with your finger, or delete them from the tablet by tapping the “x” in the corner. 

When you are satisfied with the arrangement, press the Home button to stop the wiggling icons and return to normal home screen operation.
Q: How to edit ‘Look Back’ movies on Facebook?

Facebook’s ‘Look Back’ tool (facebook.com/lookback) automatically creates a highlight reel of your time on the site through the content you posted. The feature did not have an editing function when it first arrived.

As detailed on its Help site, Facebook has now added an editing tool. To use it, click the Edit button above your ‘Look Back’ video and use the checkmarks on your photos and other posts to include or remove them from your movie.
