    Safari Broken; How to "Recycle" It?

    Thank you very much giradman! Having never seen the multitasking screen before I decided to pass on that and try #2. Which I think I had already tried but wasn't certain. In any event, #2 took care of the problem. So thanks very much. I appreciate your help. Bob

    Safari Broken; How to "Recycle" It?

    Safari is broken on my iPad (iOS 9.1). It's unable to access the Internet. When it's trying to get web data the progress bar starts to move to the right but then stops after about 1/2 inch. Chrome has no problem. I have many pages open, so I imagine that might be the problem. In any event...

    Split Keyboard Floats - How do I move it?

    Thank you Ibill! Finally I can move it. But you sure are right about it being finicky! In fact I would say that it's worse than finicky because now that I can move it I can no longer unsplit it - i.e. the keyboard button in the lower right corner now just makes the keyboard disappear. But...

    Split Keyboard Floats - How do I move it?

    I can't move mine. I prefer it at the bottom because then my hands can wrap around the corners and provide some support. When the keyboard is mid-screen the iPad tends to slide out of my hands. Bob

    Split Keyboard Floats - How do I move it?

    Hi, Sorry - probably discussed before but my search did not find anything helpful. I found out how to split the keyboard but then it floats to the middle of the screen. I've learned that this is called udocking. But I'd like it to remain at the bottom of the screen. I've found posts which...

    Safari Hung by Bad, Bad Site - RESOLVED

    Thank you JA and twerppoet. I hated to see all of the sites I had open disappear (I don't recall what they all were) but it was worth it. I've had a similar problem with Chrome on Windows. I don't understand why browsers allow bad sites to completely lock them up! Good idea JA about the URL...

    Safari Hung by Bad, Bad Site - RESOLVED

    (Details on how I got t this point below, but where I am now ... WARNING OBSCENE LANGUAGE) There's a popup in a Safari session which appears to be from (i.e. across the top it says) http://f**kmeister.com and the only option at the bottom is "OK". And I am afraid to click OK because I fear that...

    Time AND Date AND Day of Week where currently only the time is displayed.

    Thanks to the several responders. The two non-Siri solutions provided by twerppoet were both easy to implement and get the job done. I am sure that the SIri solution works well too but Siri and I just haven't bonded yet. Since I am a casual iPad user I am not brave enough to try to jailbreak...

    Time AND Date AND Day of Week where currently only the time is displayed.

    At the very top of the screen "iPad" + some symbol occurs at the left, and then smack in the middle is the time of day, and then all the way to the right is a Bluetooth symbol and battery info. Is there any way to change that time area to display, in addition to the time, the date and day of...

    iGigbook New User: How do I get to "Book List View"?

    The iGigbook instructions telling me how to register to use the iGigbook forums tells me to go to the Book List View but does not tell me how to get to the Book List View, and how to get there is not obvious. I have found a drop down menu called "Switch to View" which has as its first entry...

    iGigBook Question

    Hi, I have many PDFs of sheetmusic on my iPad using iBook. For many of the PDFs iBook works fine. But one of my favorite PDFs has small and off center images. Of course I can easily enlarge the image and center it. But both of those actions have to be performed for EVERY PAGE. I've looked...

    Got iBooks for my iPad but where is the icon? How do I get some content to it?

    I guess this is resolved, but I have little confidence that I will not have very similar problems in the future. I had Apple Support on the phone for at least 40 minutes. The first problem was that when I thought I was getting iBooks (via iTunes on my Windows laptop), the laptop was unable...

    Got iBooks for my iPad but where is the icon? How do I get some content to it?

    I got iBooks for my iPad. Very shortly after going through the download process (on my laptop) the iPad made a sound - I think indicating that the app was indeed on it. And if I look in "App Store" iBooks is certainly there. But outside of "App Store" there is no indication on the iPad that...
