Yet Another Thing I've Just Learned

I have dozens of files stored on my Apple iBooks app. Most of them have easy to figure out names, but a handful of them have titles that are random strings of letters and numbers. (Like 5137Dec2014. What the heck is the subject of THAT one?)  Today I spent ten minutes opening random files before I found the one I needed and figured there had to be a better way.

There is. On the Apple Support page I learned how easy it is:
  • Step 1: In iBooks tap Select button on the upper right
  • Step 2: Tap the circle in front of the document title to select it.  Tap on the title you want to change to bring up the keyboard, and type in the new name.
  • Step 3: Tap the Done button on the upper right to save the new title.
Twenty minutes later the task was done.  And as an added bonus, while I was taking the time to re-title files I also took the opportunity to purge a couple I didn't need any more.

  1. This is a great idea, good for you Kathy.

  2. Always a good thing, to keep files up to date and easy to find!

  3. I usually wait for one of my children to take care of things in all my computer doings. I am old and set in my ways!

  4. I have this app, but haven't used it yet. I still prefer the old fashioned books.

    1. All of my e-books are on my Kindle. It's nice to have a lot of reading choices, isn't it?
