The latest operating system for the iPad supports folders. To begin, tap and hold your finger on an app until it starts jiggling, drag that app on top of another icon, and then let it go. This will create a folder with both apps. If you don’t like the label, you can rename the folder.
You can quickly get access to all the apps that are running on your iPad. Just push the Home button twice in succession to show an icon for each running app. Tap an application icon to switch to that app. To take the bar away, just do a downward swipe on your screen.
Try to keep track of what apps you leave running when you are not using them. Many of the apps the iPad runs are able to stay in the background when you’re doing other things. You can easily see the running apps by double clicking the home button. A bar shows up near the bottom of the screen that will list currently active apps. Swipe downwards to remove the bar from sight when you’re finished.
