    sometimes while scrolling through I'll find an oh moment:Eeek: about a place,an item or a how to. Then I change places move on and lose said item. How can I keep such things?

    At the top of your page, there is a "book" icon press and hold this icon, then click add bookmark.

    Edit - to then access bookmarks, just tap the book (don't hold)

    A feature that I find very useful on an Ipad is being able to take a picture of the screen

    Press the main on/off button, on the side, at the same time as the Home button, on the front. The screen will flash and an image of the screen will be placed in "Photos" under the heading Today

    Also very useful if you want to be able to view something at a later date when you maybe offline

    Another useful tip is inverting the colours, this makes the screen much easier to read in direct sunlight.

    Go to general-> accessibility-> accessibility shortcuts-> invert colours.

    Then all you need to do is triple click the home button to invert the colours when needed.

    Bloody hell that is awesome, I clicked history and 'found' stuff I'd copied when I didn't know what I was doing and lost it, the plot? Thankyou, the world is my lobster

    Go into 'Apps store' do a search fo 'taps smart' that will bring up 'Tips and tricks' for various Apple Devices, phone, tablet, pod etc. Click on your device and this will bring up an App with hundreds and hundreds of tips for opening short cuts or more importantly advice on what your magical Apple device can do for you, it's a free app but to be honest the paid version is coppers and well worth it for the information that is available.

    Seriously, I am going to start a "most ridiculous auto correct" thread, recently I posted on Facebook about my woes with a leak in the roof, but auto correct thought I really wanted to talk about the vegetable leek, so I posted about finding a leek on my roof. Which did not go down well with my friends! :D

    image.png Assuming you mean a bookmark in Safari (not iBooks), if you press the bookmarks icon a list of your bookmarks is presented, at the bottom right of which is the word "edit". Press "edit" and the list display should change to have a red button/icon against the left of each bookmark. Press the red button/icon by the bookmark you wish to delete and you should see the "delete" option to the right of such.

    Edit: It's worth searching YouTube for tips, here's an example short video which may help. Note there maybe small user interface differences relative to age of video and version of IOS/Safari in use:-

    This YouTube video is a little old, but demonstrates the process of copy/paste, so it should help. Before you can paste you will need to have selected and copied some content. Once you have performed the "copy" then the "paste" option should be available.
