I bought my wife this tablet some months ago. When I went to use it last night, I noticed a row of icons along the top of the screen. These are very small and mainly black and white. There are 20 that say BBC NEWS, 6 that look like suitcases with a tick, six that look like download arrows, a couple of facebook and one skype.
Tapping them does nothing. I'm sure the answer will be simple, but what are they and how do I get rid?!
Can you not swipe the sreen down from where the icons are. That should give you the option to clear them. There then maybe 3 or 4 bars at the top. Touching them should clear the notifications. Alternatively there may be an option to 'Clear' which I have on my S3.
