Thank you Jane for trying to help me..CC

There is a lot of alarm in Android phone industries over a massive billion dollar tracking and theft scam. This link is to a spreadsheet showing the apps, some set for kids that allows them to steal your info and even track everything you do. Google says it is busy deleting apps from it but check to see if you use any of them.

I'm having trouble with my Apple IPad....when I go to my settings..it says not connected...or says choose wifi......don't know what I need to do...any suggestions? Thanks CC

jackwv

CC  plug in the cord you use to charge and the other end in the USB port on your computer, and if no computer check settings to turn on WiFi.   

Cottoncandy

Thank you...it's supposed to show...wifi..and my name....can't figure out why it keeps saying wi fi..off..CC

jackwv

CC if it is not showing your wifi in settings look on the right and be sure you are seeing green and the button to the right.  If not slide it and then your wifi should show.  I never use my pad, hope this works.

Cottoncandy

Jack..was finally able to get my wi fi on ...on iPad...it's telling me...security recommendation...what do I need to do on this...CC

jackwv

Sorry CC unable to help with that.  I know that I avoid passwords and possible other settings. Hope Patricia or Rick have an answer.  If you have an iPhone, I have found that going to AT&T or Verison  have folks able to do necessary adjustments and have never charged me to do so.  Would take the iPad along.  Best Buy might, but would ask if a charge.

Can anyone tell me how to remove messenger notifications on my Apple IPad? I don't have messenger..so don't need the notifications...thank you and Happy New Year CC

JeanneP

I am not able to use  my desktop computer at the moment and using IPad. So much I don't know how to do in it.
Was trying to copy and paste a long postings I had done here on s andF   tonight to save the typing. Most people just read certain forums.
I Cant remember how to do it on iPad. So use to using desktop.

Got to get in bed. Already down to 6 below zero and house getting colder. I do have a electric blanket on.

Put your finger somewhere on text you want to copy and hold it there. When options come up, click on Select ALL and then COPY.  You can then go to other place, open reply box, click your finger in the box and when options come up, select PASTE>


Stay warm and safe.

Thanks Jane. Not looked at the Ipad today still messed up a little. Will try your tip tomorrow.
How I wish they had kept the place on . Maybe it was Seniornet . All the tips where stored in there for when our question answered. Was great.
Jane. Just dont be in a hurry to head home. Even colder for you. Said today the Minneapolis is at 60 deg below and Chicago high also. Lakes don't help when this cold. They say can pour liquid from high and if freezes before hits ground . I just got up to turn my electric blanket on on my bed. Sure glad I have that. Only thing is it turns off after 3 hours and so have to wake up to clik back on. I don't keep bedroom register on and boy its cold in there. So many people have water pipes busting and furnaces stop running. They are keeping chuches, libraries and lots of place staying up all night . Buses trying to run some and at the big turn around places they have buses staying in spots with heat running.  First time that the Univ. Of Illinois not open as records kept. They way the kids have to go from building to building I cant see them being able to be out they say try for only 15 min. Not seen a school but all week. Still not as bad as homes in floods and fires. So grateful for that.

Since my iPad fixed it is stuck in vertical. I like to have it horizontal .how do I fix it ?

Jakkims

I have just Googled it for you, Jeanne. Here is what to do -

To access the Control Centre swipe your finger down from the upper right corner of the iPad screen.
In the Control Center, locate the Lock Rotation button. The lock rotation icon has a circular arrow around a lock. If this button is highlighted, tap it to toggle the rotation lock off.
You should be able to rotate the iPad now, but you can't rotate it with the control panel open. You can close the control panel by either (1) sliding a finger down starting from the top of the control panel or (2) press the iPad's Home Button.

Regards, Jakki.

orry to say it but winter is back here. No snow but really cold. It stay away for the Marathon runners early but by 10 am it starting storm. Rained all day. I have not even gotten dressed and think will just shower and put other PJs on.
Have a bad time with my tech stuff also. My desktop working o.k but what a mess with my Ipad and one other that works WiFi and its google that has them messed up. I have now got the new smart phone working some but have not put a google acct. on it yet. I have rung them up to work with me but it is another company not google who answered there service calls. Now they want you to pay  $60 for a month of help. Not paying for it.
Will let someone else work on the Smart phone . May try calling them later. Think I am going to go back to reading more and stop with the Tech Stuff for awhile. Ipad will not even let me shut it down. Some women voice who I can't understand just keep talking.

I have so many chats showing up when I click on the messenger app on my iPad. I need to delete them all. Never looked intact app before. Now haw do I delete them all at same time and not get them showing up in there,
I don't get into Facebook often.
JeanneP

jane


Jeanne...are you speaking of the green icon that says Messages   or the blue one with a ~ on it that says Messenger?

Who are the people who are sending you these messages?  Are they people you know?



JeanneP

Jane. I will answer that late. At the moment my IPad has gone crazy. Will not let me open. other than the home page. Wont shut down all to gether. So can't get into it. Will take it over to Best Buys and see what the problem is. It has been acting up for weeks.
JeanneP

JeanneP

Jane.
It is the blue messenger that I need to delete all from . Says Chats. So many.
Now I have managed to get the iPad opened again today. Don't know what keeps locking it up.
JeanneP

jane

Jeanne....It sounds like the Messenger from Facebook.

 Tap and hold the icon until your apps shake. Tap the X icon to delete it. Then tap Delete to confirm that you want to remove the Messenger app from your iOS device. You can still check your inbox on the Facebook mobile site.

Thanks Jane. I got it off the IPad. Never was on the new Desktop. Will see if I have a messinger App on the new I Phone later.  I still get thrown back to March 2016 when I hit On NEW . Does not seem to do it on all the ones I go into daily but always when go into the Computer ones. Crazy....

Jeanne...on my Ipad mini, it's the upper of the two "buttons" on the side of the Ipad.
