    Trying to clear Safari History. Ipad for Dummies shows a menu that includes History, current date, clear history, Home and google search.

    However my screen only has one menu - pictured above the missing one - that includes bookmark and the search entry panel.

    How do I display the missing menu?

    Another question - how do I delete/exit a website?

    To close a tab (I hope that's what you meant), tap the x here:

    History can be deleted in Settings - Safari:

    Or in the app. There, tap the book icon (top right), to see your favorites and bookmarks. You'll see "History" there as well.

    Tap History to view websites you visited:

    Tap "Clear" there, next thing to see is this:

    Select "Clear History".

    You're welcome.

    I'm not quite sure which menu you're missing in Safari. Is it visible in one of my screenshots?
