    Try a restart, or try a reset if needed.

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

    Well, I would first force the app to shut down - double tap the 'home button' to open the multitask bar at the bottom of the iPad - find the 'Settings' icon, then press & hold until all icons start to 'jiggle' - press the circle w/ the minus sign on 'Settings' to force the app to close; return to your home screen, and then try 'Settings' again.

    If the above is not successful, and if not already done, try to 'Restart' the iPad, and if not a cure, then try to 'Reset' the device - Directions HERE - if none of these suggestions are helpful, then please post back for further advice - good luck!

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.
