Go to "manage my kindle" on . Your books/apps will show up on the screen. To the far right, there will be a drop-down box that says (I think) "actions." Click on that; "delete book" will be one of your options.

I've had my kindle fire for while now and use the wireless regularly but it won't fully connect. It shows the amount of bars of the wireless signal but has the x next to it. Is that something with the wireless or the kindle.

Am thinking of moving up to a Kindle Fire HD 8.9" from my plain old Fire. I have a diary with entries that I want to move along with my books and other apps. I don't think my diary entries are in the Cloud. Would I be able to move content via USB through my Mac? I'm giving my old Fire to my hubs, but don't much want him peeping into my diary...thanks in advance for any helpful hints..

Words with Friends. New Kindle user and can't do a thing. In this game, I enter a new word, send it, then what? Can't get back to screen to select another player friend.

New KF HD user. If I shut my KF down, plug it in to charge, it restarts. is that normal? do I need to change a setting? Charging seems to take a while ( I am using wall outlet not PC to charge) instructions said a full charge should only take a few hours, mine seems to take 6 or more. anyone know an app that will tell me % of battery left rather then the default gas tank meter on the KF?

I got my kindle fire a week ago and the usb cable was not a good one, didn't charge. I use the cable from my oter kindle and it worked fine, meanwhile I called kindle customer service and the issued a "free usb cable" for me. I did get stuck with a 6.99 shipping fee though.

try to reset yhour kindle, hold in the on/off button and count to 30, ignore all messaging it gives you. Wait a few minutes and try turning it on again. It should have reset itself.

Try holding in the on/off button and counting to 30. Wait a few minutes after that and the try to turn it on again. It should have reset itself.

after you plug in the usb cable to both the kindle fire and the computer there is a small light around the on/off button that will turn orange, when you are charged up (about 12 hours) it will be green. I usually charge mine at night so its ready every day.

My Kindle Fire homepage is zoomed way in and everything is huge on the home page. I can't find zoom controls anywhere. How do I reset the homescreen to its original zoom setting?

What version of flash do I need to download to watch videos on facebook? I was told I needed to download but then I was asked which version I want. I'm not tech at all. Also, will the version I download allow me to watch all videos including movies?

Which version of adobe flash player do I want to download on my Kindle HD. I'm totally not tech. When I tried to watch a video on facebook, I was told I needed flash. I was taken to the adobe flash site and was asked which version I wanted to download. Also, will this "flash" take care of all my video needs like watching movies?

My keyboard doesn't show up on my Kindle Fire anymore. I can't search for anything-- I've tried shutting down and turning it back on, holding the power button for 30 seconds, etc. I cannot use the keyboard, and it was working just 2 hours ago. Help!
