add to collection? where is it?
« on: December 30, 2013, 12:19:48 PM »
I just downloaded a bunch of games for my daughter.  On the carousel I pressed on each of them and added them all to one collection.  But where can I find that group?  They are all on my carousel still as separate games.

Go to "Apps" and then slide the left hand side of the screen to the right. A list of options will be there...one of them will be "collections."

What Wagswife said.

Go to Apps and tap on the menu icon in the upper left hand corner to see the menu.  Selecdt Collections from there.

Collections won't show up on the Carousel, but you can add a collection to your home page, if it isn't there by pressing and holding on the collection on the apps page and selecting "Add to Home" from the pop up menu that appears.

OK.  So all the individual apps will still appear as separate apps on the carousel?

Yes.  You can remove apps from the Carousel by pressing and holding and selecting "remove from carousel."

Think of the Carousel as your "recent items" list, either used or purchased (to include books, personal documents, your photo gallery, music, apps and videos).

Below that, your home page as your most used items list.

And then, you have the Apps tab where you can see your collections, which can include items on the device or in the cloud.  You can also choose to see a list of items only on the device or a list of items only in the cloud.

Oh, I thought if I removed it from the carousel, it removed it from the bottom portion of the page, and also from the device.  So, I can just remove it from the carousel and it will not affect anything else?  So in essence, you can customize the carousel?  If you remove it, and then go into that same app, will it reappear in the carousel?

Yes. Every time you use something it will reappear in the carousel.

Yes, the Carousel is always your "recently used" items, so things will reappear as you use them.

And no, removing them from the Carousel won't affect other locations.  If you press and hold on an app on the Carousel, you have four options--"Remove from Home," "Remove from Carousel," "Remove from Device" and "Add to Collection."  If you press and hold on a book and it isn't on your device, you'll also have "Download" but not "Remove from Device" since, well, it's not on your device.

If you remove something from the device, it will disappear from the Carousel.
