    Looking to share audio and video on Zoom meetings - need help!

    It was good to see that you are still here J.A.! I have been trying to follow the instructions on the Zoom help link you gave for a few weeks but with no success - can never get a level of sound high enough for participants in my zooms to hear! But I will keep trying and if I find a solution...

    Looking to share audio and video on Zoom meetings - need help!

    Hello all! I used to post a fair bit here when I got my original iPad in 2010 and mini1 a year or so later and have been managing to do all I need without bothering you experts until recently. However after many google searches for a solution to my current dilemma I suddenly came across an old...

    I use my Mini 1 when out and about as well as at home. I also use my original iPad (bought June 2012) for stuff that doesn't need an up to date app like reading books, playing audiobooks, emails, playing card games etc as I prefer the larger screen and keeyboard when in bed without my contact...

    iPad 2017 How to lock/unlock screen rotation?

    Just reporting back! It took a while for my friend to get the hang of using a one finger swipe up to access the control centre, but she got there in the end. I also showed her how to use a 4 finger swipe to see all open apps, but she is still trying to master that consistently!!

    Hi all! My friend (who will shortly turn 85) has been given a new iPad 2017 by her son after her old one had problems and cannot find how to make the screen rotate from portrait to landscape. It is set in portrait mode, which means that when she watches TV or films the picture is small. The new...

    iPad Mini 1 upgraded to iOS 9 - will it slow down?

    I have a Mini 1 and was intending not to update the IOS for fear of having problems due to the old hardware. However, though I am sure I have always told it not to upgrade, I must have clicked awry a few days ago as it now is on IOS 9.3.5!! I have not noticed any problems yet apart from it...

    Will jailbreaking iPad 1 enable it to run iOS 9?

    I use the native "mail" app on my iPad1 to access an assortment of email addresses. Have you tried adding your gmail account to Mail via the Settings page?

    Mini2 losing emails and apps

    As for your IPF app - it doesn't work any more, hasn't for several years now if I remember correctly. Some people use Tapatalk to access the forum.

    Replace digitizer/ touch screen

    I bashed my original mini against a wall (reading as I walked) and have cracks spreading across one corner from near the home button. I just covered the cracks with clear parcel tape and it has worked OK for over a year.

    Upload Textbooks Files to iPad Without iTunes

    I use Dropbox for this Not sure what their limit is for free use, so it might not hold all of your books for free, but you could transfer all of your books some at a time.

    get rid of red dashed lines....

    It looks as if you have Auto Correct turned on. Go to Settings - General - Keyboard and slide the button beside "Auto-correction" to the Off position

    If you go to "settings" and select "general" then "about" you can scroll down and see the Ipad's capacity and what space is available

    its worth reading and learning of other people's problems, just in case

    Good suggestion! :) I have found that a couple of times I have found the answer to my problem by reading about how someone else fixed it on the forum!

    Documents app problems

    It would be fiddly to do, but you could always do a screenshot of each page of your CV and then upload those one at a time.

    Ipad usage history

    Too late for this past incident, but if you had set up the "Find my Phone" facility you could have gone on line and set it to "Lost Mode" as soon as you realised you had left it there to stop anyone accessing it.

    What are the people circles

    No, Sania, they are just people on the poster's contacts list with whom they have been in contact recently.

    Ipad keeps resetting itself

    I find if I close all other apps down that I can watch a film or TV programmes without this happening. Sometimes there is the option to download the film or programme and watch it offline so you can even close your wi-fi down as well to free up as much RAM as possible.

    Numbers...How to graph vs time of day

    Thank you, Larry!

    Is it possible to interrupt a game at regular intervals?

    Better then for the OP to set his own alarm and just tell them to stop when it rings!
  33. Elizellen

    Is it possible to interrupt a game at regular intervals?

    Maybe you can set a timer and let them know that when it rings they must stop and (insert other activity) for x minutes? I assume that as they are small they are not too far away to hear an alarm going off.

    Numbers...How to graph vs time of day

    I've just downloaded the free version for myself - thanks for mentioning it! Does anyone know if it is possible to put previous readings in or does it only log numbers for the current date/time?

    Help with You Tube app

    The YouTube app on my Ipad 1 started acting up a while ago so I deleted it then went to the Itunes Store and downloaded it again. It first told me the updated version was not suitable then offered to let me download an older version. This has been working fine for me - I have been catching up...

    no sound when alarm triggers??

    Is your volume slider set too low at the top of the "Sounds" section in "Settings"?
  38. Elizellen

    Ok, new question

    Its small size so I can even put it into a (large) inside pocket and use it when attending hospital appointments without needing to take a bag with me. As I use a mobilty scooter I like to have no extra clutter to have to keep an eye on
