    You should look for the "Settings" icon and then tap on it.
    It is in the bottom-left corner of the screen in this video. However, it could be anywhere on your iPad: it might even be on another home page or in a folder. No matter where it is, find a gear-shaped icon with a circular set of gears and a gray silver box. Tapping on this icon will open the settings menu. It does not matter what you see or what the options show.
