I just need to limit access to ONE page within a SharePoint 2013 site

I need to modify the permissions of one specific page within a SharePoint site or I guess it is called a "list". I do know some basics about SharePoint 2013 permissions and Site Setting/Users and Permissions and I have created AD security groups before and added them under People and Groups but that has been for the entire site . Now a specific page has been created and needs to be limited to a number of users I have added to a new active directory SharePoint group. I keep reading about going to Site Contents, find the page or List and go into it but when I do I see nothing but the same options when I click on the gear in the upper left and I am afraid I will break the entire site if I start modifying Site Permissions even if it is from the specific page I want to limit. When I am in the Site Content page I do see a SETTINGS option but it appears to take me right back to SITE SETTINGS, which is what I want to avoid. Can someone direct me as to where I can go? Can someone give me some direction?

create a new permissions group and put your AD group in it.  Go to the library where the page is stored.  You should an option to modify settings for that particular page (look for ...).  If you don't see this on the view - edit the view and select the field 'Title with edit menu" to appear in the view.  Click that and then choose 'shared with' (you might have to click 'advanced ' first - depends on your version of SP.  Check 'advanced' on the shared with panel - - then 'stop inheriting permissions' (upper left hand corner).  then just click the permission groups you want to remove - be sure not to remove yourself (you should be in the owners group).  then add the special permissions group.  You can't do this without 'breaking' inheritance - which is routine in sharepoint sites with any level of security.

People will not then see the page even if they browse the library unless they're in the permissions group you specify (or owners).
