Question Need some IPAD assistance

My Mom got an IPAD 2 recently. She has used a PC but never anything Apple. I've never used one either. I was trying to help her with it the other night and did figure out a few things but I did not find it very intuitive.

Here is one thing I couldn't figure out. If she gets an email with a youtube link in it, and watches the video, how do you get back to the email to delete it or reply? Seems like a basic thing. ;?

I sent her a google search for IPAD tips and some youtube videos. Also sent her a link to download the user guide. Is the IPAD for Dummies book any good? Other resources for a novice user?

Thanks.

That was the only thing I could find but I thought there must be an easier way.

When I was reading yesterday I did see a reference to 4 or 5 finger swiping. It knows the difference between 1 and 4? I'll pass that along.

Thanks!

double-push the home button rapidly and you can go to other running apps.

It does, and now, so do you and your mom. Other users, not so much.

As I recall, tap at the top of the screen and it will show "Done", press it and you get back to your inbox. Your very right about the clunky op system, seems their going backwards, but I would not switch after 18 years

Double-click the round home button and all running apps will appear along the bottom of the screen. If you hold down your finger on any one of those apps for 2-3 seconds they will get a red minus sign and can be shut down if not needed. In mail inbox, if you swipe a finger from right to left over any mail listed along the left side, you will get an option to delete that mail. If you want to copy something hold down your finger and you will get a select option and then a copy option. Paste works the same way.
