    :confused: I just got a new Samsung Galaxy Tablet 8.9 last week and I'm sure I will love it--AFTER I get everything figured out. My one big problem right now is that when I go to the internet, there are no menus, forward/backward arrows, bookmarks, etc. like on a traditional computer. Did mine just get lost or off the screen, and if so, how do I get it back??? Is there a different way of navigating on a tablet??? I get the button at the bottom left that is like an undo button which goes back a page, but if I want to open a new tab, go back and forth, save a page as a bookmark, etc., I'm lost. Also, how do you save a photo or object on a tablet??? On my computer, I would right click, save as... But I don't see function keys/buttons anywhere and am lost.

    :banghead: I got this tablet with the purpose of doing all my internet surfing, email, etc. on it and discontinuing my landline DSL. But I have to be able to save photos, pages, etc. so I can get them over to my regular laptop.

    I tried putting Google Chrome on it and I don't think it worked, so maybe I need to restore the internet or something, but if so, how???

    Also, can I use my laptop via wireless connection through the internet on the tablet??? That would be one easy way of solving it when I need to save something. But I still want to be able to save on the tablet for future use.

    Welcome to Android Forums! :hello:

    Yes, my tablet has all but replaced my poor, dusty laptop. It's just so much more convenient to handle and read!

    My favorite browser for it is Dolphin HD and it's a fully-featured browser that saves images and attachments fine. Check it out at Google's Play Store.

    You can share your tab let's 3G internet connection with the laptop by finding the wifi hotspotand tethering settings under Settings > Wireless & networks > Tethering & portable hotspot. Hope that helps!

    :five: Love the Dolphin! Thanks for recommendation!

    :questionmark: On that on my laptop? I hope i can get that working because i download daily podcasts from itunes and save to my Sansa Clip to listen with earphones at work and if I'm understanding right, it looks like i can't get itunes on tablet.

    There's just some things I'd rather do directly with my laptop. I have a couple other questions but I'll start a new thread so as not to jumble this one up. Thanks again.

    Nope, that's settings in the tablet to turn it into a wireless router sharing it's 3G internet with your laptop and other devices with wifi capability. It's a great feature built into most Android devices.

    That's what I thought, but I don't have the "Tethering & portable hotspot" option when I go to "Settings > Wireless & networks >". My only choices are:
    Airplane mode
    Wi-Fi (where at the moment I am connected to my landline DSL)
    Wi-Fi settings
    Wi-Fi Direct Settings
    Kies via Wi-Fi
    Bluetooth settings
    VPN settings
    Mobile networks.

    I looked through all my settings and I do not have "Tethering". I'm wondering if AT&T disabled it or took it out of their version of the Galaxy 8.9 :questionmark::questionmark:
