Hi All As with all forums this really is a great use of the WWW. My daughters have bought a Xmas present of a Superpad 8 for my wife. I am supposed to be the computer savvy one but there are a number of things I am unable to do. The two pressing things are a. I want to be able to clear the application icons from (what I will call) the desktop. This is because I have generated three Skype Icons on the home page while trying to solve problem b. b. She has now registered on Skype. Unlike my Windows based capability we are unable to bring up the screeen where Mic/Speaker/Webcam etc levels can be adjusted. The mic is clearly not working but I can find no way to activate it. I have been fluent in Dutch, German and Arabic in my younger days but making sense of the translation of the very limited information in the 'handbook' is beyond me. Any help will be gratefully received. As she does not know about forums yet I will also look pretty good if I (you) can solve this!!!!! Cheers and Happy New Year.
