Re: iPad Stuck

Hold down the Home button and the screen lock button at the same time. (The screen lock button is sometimes called on/off.) This forces the iPad to restart, just as if you'd used the slide to power off button. This is what's called a hard boot for an iPad. You'll need to hold both buttons simultane...

Re: Desktop folder issue

Easier than that is to RIGHT CLICK on the desktop and a menu will pop up with an option to create a new folder. LEFT CLICK that option and you're done.

Re: Deleting Apps

I should have specified I have a 4th generation. Thanks for the information. Now I can get rid of a pesky app I no longer want.

Am interested to hear from anyone who has travelled and used this new feature. as compared to any one of the confusing array of international calling plans (from the US) Verizon offers A...

Re: .PLST File For Mail

When I did that I was able to look at Mail/Preferences and there was that damn other email program as the default. It's ...
