    I have not been computer savy in some time now. In January, my laptop that was given to me by my cousin, crashed. So, I decided that I'd go out and get an iPad 2. Only after I got home did I realize that it doesn't come with instructions. I mean, why would it... That would come close to making sense. Anyways, I've been blindly stumbling threw until someone asked if I was on the forum. So, here I am. I dream of one day being a landscape engineer so if you have questions about plants or landscaping feel free to drop me a line.

    Link to manual:

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    If you can't find a technical manual in future, for Apple or another company, start by googling. You're usually seconds from any manual under the sun.

    Thank you for such a quick response. I have a quick question. I am trying to figure out how to post a pic in my library as my FB profile pic. It says it only "attach". I can't figure out how to post my pic on here either. I could really use some help. Plz!

    I don't use Facebook.

    Suggest you familiarize yourself with the forum's search function. I've seen similar threads about Facebook.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Photos have to be uploaded to Facebook first, press attach then once it's uploaded tap the photo and when it loads tap the top right hand side and some buttons will appear, press the box with an arrow and you will be presented with a list of options, one of which is Make Profile Picture.
    I use the app for the Forum, there is a link to the App store below. To upload a photo in the app, press the box with the arrow, top right and select reply to thread, compose your post then press Advanced top right, and a page will load with some options, select Attach a photo and your Photos will appear, select your photo and it will upload then just press the arrow to the right of the photo and it will go back to your post with your photo attached. Press send, top right.
