    Hi! I know I have a lot of apps running in the background on my iPad. Every time I double press down the home button, it automatically brings up the search page instead of showing the running apps. Any suggestions?? Much appreciated!

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

    First, multiple apps running 'in the background' is typical for the iPad; second, when you 'double press' the home button, make sure that the process is done quickly, i.e. the speed will determine whether the multi-taskbar opens or a switch to another screen is done. Also, if you are running the updated software on the iPad, multi-gesturing finger movements can be used - just put 4-5 fingers on the screen and swipe upward, the taskbar should open.

    If none of these suggestions work, then you might want to 'Restart' and if not successful 'Reset' your iPad - directions HERE, if unfamiliar w/ the procedures - good luck!
