How do I get into my settings on my iPad?

For some reason when people call me, they get my friend Lynn instead. This happens regularly and I have to think it has something to do with my settings.

I do not know where that tool (the wrench) logo is located? Can someone please help me.

thank you in advance,

I figured it out. It had to do with call forwarding. My calls were being forwarded to my friends account when I was off line.

...and to answer your original question: You can find the Skype settings via the "Settings" app of your iPad and scrolling down the setting category / app listing.

Claudius,

I did find that helpful, but that is not where I was able to change my call forwarding status.

Come to think of it, if I did not  save, I might not have done anything.

Thank you for your interest and help.

Hi Margeret,
you are right. The "Call forwarding" settings have moved into the app. Quite a while ago already, but I wasn't aware of that.
You can find them inside the app when you tap on your own profile picture on top left.

I am in the Settings on my iPad, Skype, and all I see is Sign In Auto, Go Offline, and Version. Where am I going wrong?
