    I Hope You Don't Keep The Blues

    Welcome to the Forum. You have come to the right place to ask your 'zillion' questions. There are not a zillion members but a lot of members who are truly good samaritans when it comes to offering help!

    Welcome and remember to give some details when you ask your questions.
    Often questions are so vague that it's impossible to give a helpful answer.

    The best advice you can give a new owner is play with it, you won't break it. It's a surprisingly competent little gadget but it won't do everything.

    Don't forget to download iBooks and the iPad manual. It's well made and very useful.

    MANY THANKS FOR YOUR HELPFUL REPLY TO MY VAGUE COMPLAINT. MY IMMEDIATE PROBLEM IS:

    WHEN I GET INTO A SITE, I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET OUT. I MUST GO BACK TO THE BASIC ICONS. I SEE NO x OR "CLOSE" OR "QUIT" HOW DO YOU EXIT AND BACK UP ONE NOTCH?

    Hit the "Home" button on the iPad. it has the Square icon and is an actual hardware button, not one on an app.

    Thanks for your reply, but I cannot find a "home" button on my Ipad. Almost all of the icons are square, but none say home. Bill

    It wont. it isnt on the screen at all, but on the black fuller going around the screen, just above the sync port. Little round button in the faceplate with a square in the middle.

    Try also reading the manual...
