Intro

<p></p> <p>Apple's iPad runs the same operating system software as the iPhone, so it's not surprising that many of the tips that work on the iPhone also work on the iPad. Here are a few iPad tips that could save you time and frustration.</p> <p></p>

<strong>Scroll to top of page</strong>

<p></p> <p></p> <p>Tapping the status bar (the bar where the clock and battery icon sits) will take you to back to the top of a page. This tip works not only in Web pages in Safari, but also for emails and other apps.</p> <p></p>

<strong>Add remove icons from the dock</strong>

<p></p> <p></p> <p>When you first take your iPad out of the box, there are only four icons in the bottom dock: Safari, Mail, Photos, and iPod. But the dock can hold up to six icons. To move an app icon into the dock, simply tap and hold it and when it starts to jiggle, drag it to the dock. Pressing the Home button again will confirm the change. You can also remove any icon from the dock by holding it and then dragging it out of the dock.</p> <p></p>

<strong>Screenshots</strong>

<p style="text-align: center;"></p> <p></p> <p>Pressing the Sleep/Wake button while holding down the Home button will take a screenshot of whatever is on you iPad display.</p> <p></p>

<strong>Rearrange your app icons</strong>

<p></p> <p></p> <p>To move an app icon, simply tap and hold it until it jiggles, and then drag it to wherever you like. You can also move the icon to a different page by moving it off to the left or right side of the screen.</p> <p></p>

<strong>Remove an app from your iPad</strong>

<p></p> <p></p> <p>Not happy with an app? You can delete it by tapping and holding it until it jiggles, and then pressing the "x" in the upper lefthand corner. This tip also works for Web pages that you've added to the Home screen through Safari.</p> <p></p>

<strong>Copy and paste</strong>

<p style="text-align: center;"></p> <p></p> <p>To copy and paste text, simply tap and hold down on a text, drag the blue end bars until you have your desired text, and then select "Copy." To paste the text you just copied, tap a blank space in an editable window or box and select "Paste."</p> <p></p>

<strong>Saving Images in Safari</strong>

<p></p> <p></p> <p>To save any Web page image while in Safari, simply tap and hold an image until you see the hovering menu. Selecting "Copy" will copy the image into the clipboard and allow you to paste it elsewhere (for example, into an email), while selecting "Save Image" will save it to the Photos app.</p> <p></p>

<strong>Change the Home button behavior</strong>

<p></p> <p></p> <p>By default, double tapping the Home button on the iPad will take you to the Home screen. But you can change this by tapping the "Settings" icon, selecting "General" on the left column, and then "Home" on the right column. You can now set it so that when you double-tap the Home button, it can take you straight to the iPod app, or bring up Search.</p> <p></p>

<strong>Extra keys</strong>

<p></p> <p></p> <p>Tapping and holding certain keys will bring up variations of that key or extra punctuation keys. Similarly, while in Safari, tapping and holding the ".com" key will bring up the additional URL keys ".net," ".edu," and ".org".</p> <p></p>

<strong>Caps lock</strong>

<p></p> <p></p> <p>By default, caps lock is not enabled when you first take your iPad out of the box. To enable it, tap the "Settings" icon, select "General" in the left column, and then "Keyboard" on the right column. Slide the "Enable Caps Lock" button to the "On" position. From now on, whenever you double tap the Shift key, it will turn blue to let you know that caps lock is turned on.</p> <p></p>

<strong>Copy/delete/email multiple images in photos app</strong>

<p style="text-align: center;"></p> <p></p> <p>To copy, delete, or email multiple images in the Photos app, click on the upper right hand icon and then select the photos that you want to copy or delete. Selected images will display a blue and white checkmark. Then copy, delete, or email the chosen images. Note: You can only email five images at a time.</p> <p></p>
