Ipad Keyboard

I just last week upgraded (I think a BIG mistake) my Ipad IOS to the latest (I think 8.0.2).

(1) I opted to require a code upon turnon (4 numbers). I realized I don't want that, I can find no way to turn that off. Is there a way?

(2) The pop up keyboard is too large (height wise). There are some things where it covers over where you are typing & you can;t visually confirm what is being typed without closing the keyboard, looking, then reopening. What a TOTAL annoyance.

Of course it being the iPad, there is no way I know to take a screen shot. There are two extra things above the keyboard I don't need. There is a bar with a < > on the left and another bar under that with Words (centered) in a darker gray area, Right now it shows I, The and I'm. No clue what that's for.

Can I get rid of those needless things?

Thanks

To disable the pin, go to Settings > General > Auto-Lock, put in your pin, then you can disable it.

As for the predictive text, Settings > General > Keyboard > turn off predictive text.

To take a screenshot with your iPad, press the Home and Sleep/Wake (Power) buttons at the same time.

The image will be in the Camera Roll.

Joshua Grantom,

OK, keyboard worked, thanks

On Settings > General > AutoLock, there is no place to put in a PIN.

Thanks

You can hide the grey area (predictive text) by dragging downward in the grey part.

To take a screenshot you press both power button and the circular button at the same time and you will here a snip sound.
