    I've been into Safari Settings and attempted to turn off "Always Show Bookmarks Bar " but it seems to have no effect. I've reset the iPad by holding down sleep/wake button and the Home button, but all to no avail.
    How can I get rid of this Bookmarks Bar as I have no need of it. Any help appreciated please!

    Huh. That is odd, because I don't even have to do a reset or a restart for that on/off button to work.

    Have you tried fully closing out Safari in the multi-tasking bar? Maybe it's just "stuck"?

    Honestly, I don't have anything else, because it doesn't make sense that it doesn't work. Sorry. Maybe someone else has an idea.

    Double press the Home button (or do a four-finger swipe up) to reveal the multitasking bar. One of the icons that should be revealed is Safari. Press and hold it until it starts to wiggle and you see a red minus sign in the upper left of the icon. Press the minus sign and the Safari icon will disappear. You're not removing it from the iPad, just resident memory.

    Hope that clarifies.

    This is the Bookmark Bar, just under the tool bar.

    If you want a bookmark to show up here just save your bookmark to the folder of the same name, also shown. If you don't have any bookmarks saved there, it probably won't show up. If you have the show always option turned off in Settings > Safari, it will only show up when you tap on the URL or Search fields at the top.

    Glad we could help.

    Oh, and twerppoet - I see that you are already making full use of your new Skitch for iPad app! :D

    Oh, sorry, 406moggy.

    I was referring to twerppoet's picture. He use the [brand new and free!] app, Skitch for iPad, to create it. He was talking about it today on another thread.

    Sorry to confuse.

    Marilyn

    P.S. But, take a look at that app - it's a very cool way to easily annotate pictures, screenshots, web pages and maps...
