    Hi. Senior citizen new user here

    Only took about 3 hours to get iPad connected to wifi so I could get to opening page. Granddaughter added a few apps for me. Biggest problem now is how to close a page or app

    Welcome, to close an app you can use 4 fingers to swipe up or press the home button twice. Once you do this you will see some apps appear at the bottom. Long press on it till the app wiggles and a red X appears. Hit the red X and its closed

    Or, if you just meant that you want to close the app you are using so that you can open another, a single press of the home button (the one on the front of the iPad), will do the job.

    Mojosodope's instructions are for when you need to manually remove the app from RAM. This is not necessary unless you are having problems with the app. The iPad normally removes apps from RAM automatically when it needs the space. Recent apps are normally left in RAM in a frozen state. They don't slow the iPad down or use battery while in this state, but it makes switching back to them fast, and they start back up where they left off. It's kind of like the old task switching that predates true multitasking in computers.

    There are some apps that do work in the background, but you'll normally know what they are. Examples are apps that play music in the background and GPS apps that keep navigating in the background.

    Congratulations on your iPad. I hope you enjoy it.

    And welcome to the forum.
