Hi. I'm Andrea Eldridge from Nerds On Call at And the question that we're answering today is how restore your iPad applications back to their default settings. So, this would be basically if you want to get rid of everything that you've installed, all of the changes that you've made since you got your device and pretty much restore it back to the original default applications that came with your iPad. So, you can actually do this from the device itself. You select, settings, from settings you're going to go to general. And in general, at the very bottom you've got this option for reset. And that's going to give you a couple of different options. You can choose to reset all settings, erase all content in settings. And then just doing some other individual functionality. But if you're actually looking to reset all of your applications back to the default applications only, you're going to choose the erase all content and settings, follow through the prompts. And once your system reboots, you'll have only the applications that were originally installed on your iPad. Now, there's also a way to do this in iTunes as well. If you sync your device, it's going to show up in your list of available devices over here. So, this is the iPad that we have selected. Under the summary button, you'll have an option here. This button says, restore. That will do the same general thing. So,basically it's going to take off all the applications that you've installed, all of the settings that you've modified, restore your device back to the original factory settings.
