Erased App Icon on iPad 2

by SSWeir / August 18, 2012 6:11 AM PDT

I have absolutely no idea how she accomplished this, but my 4-year-old niece managed to erase the App Icon on my iPad and I can't find a good step by step process to fix it. Please tell me I don't have to go to the Genius Bar! I am guessing I may have to do a clean restore but if there is another way please let me know. Many thanks!

Once the application.....

.....button is deleted, so is the application. You will need to reinstall it. If you paid for the application, there would be no charge to reinstall it. Let us know if that helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
