How can I change the screen to a black background
N I so that icansee itiright sunlight
Do you mean the background on your home screen?
Easiest way is to cover up your camera lens, take a picture then select the little square with the curved arrow and select use as wallpaper and pick your home screen.
2. 2 that I have and I want to change the background screen to black so that it is easier to see if I am in bright sunlight
Sorry the typing did not come out right in my reply. It is an I Pad 2 and if I am trying to see the screen in bright sunlight I cannot. I think there is a way you can change the background to black but I can,t find how to do it
Hi I pad Junkie.
I tried what you said. Covered up lens. The screen goes red I take a picture but there is no .little square with arrow at this point. I am so stupid! What have I not done ? It is only a bright red screen with nothing else on it
To I pad junkie
Me again! Of course Just realised I have to go into photos first. I have done that but when I select box with arrow it does not give me an option to save as wallpaper
Hello Jolinmax. Once you get a black image, as suggested, go into Photos app, choose the black file. Open it and then you'll get appropriate list.
By the way, one of the biggest drawback of the iPad is that it is hard to read or use in bright sunlight. Some times, I have increased brightness to 100% in the Settings app, that has helped. But the more practical thing to do is I usually go inside and then I can see the image on the iPad. Let me know if turning your home screen into black background works. I'd do it myself but we are under heavy clouds and it is snowing here inFort Wayne!
Here is the black image in Photos app.
Once you choose image, press rectangular with arrow out, upper right corner of screen, and you'll get the list.
Here's a black picture if you can't get one, if you cover the lens with your finger it will be red. Just use this one
Edit: the little square is top right (not left) just to left of trash can
Hi I pad Junkie
Thank you for your help. I have managed to follow your instructions and now have a black screen
