    Ipad newbie...newbie problems

    Hi,

    I just received this ipad for my birthday, the first since I retired.
    Still stumbling around trying to make stuff work.

    Where is a good instruction manual to be found?

    I already had a problem when my newly set up Apps would not work from the apps page. Tap the icons...nada .
    They would work however when I selected them on the search page after entering a letter or two. Not sure whats going on so I joined this community.

    Looking forward to learning and enjoying

    Greetings and welcome to the forum!

    Ask and ye shall receive! You can download a copy of the iPad User Guide for free in several different formats.

    a) As a free PDF download from the Apple website --

    Apple - Support - Manuals



    This can (and should!) be saved on your computer and your iPad.

    b) As a free iBook once you download the free iBook app from the iTunes App Store.

    c) Online using the link provided in the Safari favorites on your iPad.

    The answers to many questions, especially if this is your first Apple mobile "iDevice", can be answered by spending some quality time with this handy document.

    Yes, I agree! You can open Safari, go to bookmarks ( looks like an poem book at the right upper corner.
    It I automatically there on every iPad I know of! It is a whole manual for the iPad you have.
    Which numbeR Ipad do you own? I could be wrong if it is a higher number than I'm used to?

    Ahem! Just pointing out this "newby" OP made that one and only post almost three years ago. But of course the link to the iPad manuals is still good to go today

    Yes, Andrew. I am having trouble with the settings because when I set it to ( first or last ) unread post I get sent to the beginning of the forum to all the threads that I are there from the beginning of the IPF! So now i am being as careful as i can to check how long ago what ever page opens was posted! I am learning as I stumble and bumble along, making mistakes and learning from them. It is the mistakes i didn't make but show up as though i made them and then I get in trouble for that really hurt me! .


    Man plans. God laughs.
    Love and Beloved.
    iPad 2.
    Peace begins with a smile.
