I just purchased a new ipad and am using the zagg keyboard.

I just purchased a new ipad and am using the zagg keyboard. I have a few questions. How do I turn the keyboard off? And, when I view settings, or gmail, the screen is split - i.e. 1/3 is the gmail or setting. I want a full screen not a split screen. Is that possible in gmail? It is on my iphone.

Hello Barbara! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer / tablet professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. You can press or slide the power button of the Zagg keyboard to turn on / off. Or go to Settings -> Bluetooth, and turn off bluetooth. You can put two fingers, one on each of the keyboard splits, then slide them together to make it full screen. Or you can press & hold the keyboard icon at the bottom right of the keyboard icon on the screen, then select the appropriate option. You can also go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard, and turn of Split keyboard.

Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you,

Sorry, do you mean the split keyboard like in the video below? Or is it something else?

Yes, please reboot the following way, then check: press and hold both the Power button and the Home buttons together for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears, then wait a bit, then check.


Please let me know. Thank you

i think the ipad justs operates with a split screen in email. not like the iphone. Unless you know otherwise.
Do you use the iPad's built-in Mail app or Gmail app you've downloaded from the App Store?

Can you capture the screen, so I can check? Thank you

the gmail app. let me try to capture the screen.

can't capture the screen sorry
That's okay. Do you see menu option in Gmail app? Look for menu/setting, and see if there is an option to turn off split screen, etc. Thank you
