    Export Chrome bookmarks

    My PC recently crashed losing everything. I would like to export, or sync, my iPad 7th gen. Chrome bookmarks so I can have them on my PC. The iPad still has all of them. This may sound frivolous, but I have quite a few things bookmarked that I will not be able to replace. I am having a...

    iPad gets some emails and texts, but not all

    My iPad 7th Gen is receiving some of my emails and texts, but not all. I have two accounts linked to my email and I get some from each. My text is linked to my iPhone, where I get all of my texts, but only a small number are received on the iPad. Any idea what might be going on?

    Documents connection blocked

    I am trying to connect my 7th Gen. iPad to a PC using the Documents app. I have done this before, but I am encountering a new problem. When I type in the code generated by Documents into I get a message saying This site can't be reached, (my ip) took too long to respond. I...

    Battery fading?

    My iPad 7th Gen., which is not quite a year old, seems to be having a battery problem. I admit I use it kind of hard, and don't always turn it off over night. These days it usually doesn't even get back to 100% over night. Is that the problem, or could it be something different? Any...

    Battery not charging well

    My iPad 7th gen, which is about 8 months old. seems to discharge what I think is fairly rapidly while I am using it and also have it plugged in to charge while in use, It also seems to re-charge fairly slowly overnight. I would guess I use it 3-4 hours per day, half on videos and half simply...

    Slightly annoying problem

    I read quite a bit on my iPad, which is also synced with a Kindle. As I read, I usually try to stop at the end of a chapter, instead of in the middle. To do that I have a tendency to rely on the clock in the lower left corner of my screen that shows approximately how long is left in each...

    Name of my iPad

    I was just on a Webex meeting and noticed that I was one of very few whose image had only an IP address, not my name. I tried looking at settings but couldn't figure out where to fix that. Can anyone help?

    Password too short?

    We happen to have two sources of wi-fi at home, one my wife uses for business and the other personal. Apparently the modem for the personal one is bad and a new one won't be delivered until Monday. So, I am attempting to use the business one. When I go to that network in setup and enter the...

    Volume controls awful

    I have an iPad 7th Generation and I am hoping there is a better way to control volume than the two buttons on the side. Is there someplace in settings that does a better job? The two buttons are difficult to get to do anything, requiring a lot of pressure to cause any change. But, beyond...

    Bluetooth not connecting

    All of a sudden the Bluetooth on my iPad won't connect. I wear hearing aids and have used the device for 3-4 months. Today nothing. Bluetooth is on in settings, the connection to my hearing aids seems fine. The device is fully charged and I have new batteries in the hearing aids. But if I try to...

    Screen brightness

    When I powered up my iPad this morning after charging over night the screen was so dark I could barely make it out. It was 100% charged and I tried going to settings and display and brightness but the slider said it was at the top level. I was able to re-boot it and it came back on at...

    Bluetooth problem

    I have hearing aids which can be paired with devices to bring sound directly into my devices. I have only had them for about a month, but the Bluetooth has worked fine, until yesterday. Now, I can easily pair them with my iPhone, but not the iPad. When I try to the iPad simply says "not...

    Transferring files to/from iPad

    I am still relatively new with my iPad and finally solved a problem with adding my personal music to it. Now, however, I have a different question. I kind of understand why Apple made that process so difficult, they really only want you to buy their music. My question now is much more basic...

    Play side-loaded music offline

    Thanks to help given on this forum I now have some of my personal music on my iPad. However, I am trying to find out if there is a way to play it when I am not online? There are a number of situations where I want to listen but have no wi-fi connection.

    Office on iPad

    I have had my iPad less than a week and I am trying to figure out what I can do with Office. The version on my iPad says Word is free, but it really doesn't seem to be. I have a licensee for Office 2019, but is there an app that can use that license on an iPad? It seems only Office 360 can be...

    This is my first day with my iPad which is basically replacing a Kindle. I have downloaded the Kindle app so I can continue using, and sharing with mu wife, our Prime account. I have been able to sync all of my books, but I don't see any way to access videos, music, etc. What am I doing...
