ICONS in my Playbook

My Child plays with my playbook a lot and he accidentally puts icons together in a folder. And to solve the problem I use Security Wipe so now I thought it would go back to normal but now my icons in my playbook is only the Browser and the Setup icon... Please I really need help.

Looks like you will have to reload the software using the computer.

When you get the PlayBook back to normal and before you hand it to the child again, Do a backup of the whole system. Them whenever it gets messed up again, do a restore to bring it back to normal again.

Re: ICONS in my Playbook

Why security wipe it?

 

That's a long process for something that can be easily rectified by deleting the folder... all icons will return to home :smileyhappy:

In many cases the little darlings lose the folder as well.

No they just make them vanish. It's a thing that kids can do that adults can't.   Reloading the OS always works. Tricks only sometimes work.
