Press and hold the icon of the application that you want to delete for a couple of seconds. After that, the icons will start to wobble and you will see an "x" in the upper left corner. Press the "x" and the application will be deleted from the phone. Hope that helps.

When I updated my iPhone by plugging it in via a USB cable it did not restore the deleted apps.

For this, touch and hold app until it wiggles, then an "X" will appear in the corner of Apps, then tap on the "X" and then it will delete the App. If some App don't have "X" then those are the default factory Apps and those cannot be deleted.

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?
