When I am thru reading a book, how do I remove it from my main screen. I tried placing them in a "Read" folder but they are still on the start up

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 6, 2011 7:32:48 AM PDT
If you bought the book from Amazon, simply right click on the title, from your home screen, and click "remove from device." It will be moved to your archives, and you can re-download it anytime.

If you want to keep them on your device, but in a collection, you will need to change the sort on your device. Move your cursor all the way to the top - above your book titles - and then flick right. Then select Collections. Any item tagged for a collection will be moved into the collection and the rest will be outside the collections. Collections sort with most recent at top.

How do I remove the Archive Folder from my Kindle reader

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 1, 2012 8:20:58 AM PDT
Ernest: You cannot remove the archives.

But don't fret about that. Archives are simply a list of all book titles owned by your account that are not currently in-residence aboard a particular Kindle. The books themselves are not there, taking up space and memory.

You need the archives to redownload books that Amazon is storing for you.

I guess I am stupid, I don't have a cursor, so I am completely lost.

What Kindle do you have?

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 1:15:19 PM PDT
Which Kindle do you have? If you have the Touch, a long press on the title brings up an option to archive or delete.

If you have one of the other e-ink models, just move the controller up or down to underline the title - then move the controlled to the left. That will bring up an option to archive or delete.

I'd like to know why all these supposed readers can't be bothered to actually read their users manuals.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 1:21:15 PM PDT
Too many words, I guess... ;-)

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 1:22:12 PM PDT
Ah yes. That must be it. ;)

Maybe you should not read the forums if it upsets you so much when someone asks for help!

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 1:47:53 PM PDT
Well, since you still have not bothered to answer the replies to your last post, maybe you should not post to the forums if you don't want help.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 1:49:20 PM PDT
Who said I was upset? All I said was that people should read their users guide. If you think that means I'm upset, perhaps an internet discussion forum is not for you.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 1:52:47 PM PDT
One would assume that before asking for help-all other avenues have been explored. RTFM. I find it simply amazing that people own e-readers, but can't be bothered to read.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 1:53:37 PM PDT
I find it even more amazing that when these supposed readers are told to actually read, they think people are being mean. Boggles the mind, it does.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 1:55:56 PM PDT
Yes. When I think of someone as a "reader", I figure they're like me - reading anything with printing on it. How many cereal boxes have you read because there was NOTHING else available? A nice, fat user's guide for a wonderful toy? Talk about irresistible!

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 1:57:36 PM PDT
Exactly. As soon as I got my K2 (and later KK), I went the whole RTFM route. I'm not good with electronics, so the manual was a great help. And it was written in easy-to-use language that I could understand. :D

So, this is the point at which we start playing "Guess the Model" with you. I'll go first:
You have a Kindle Keyboard. The 'cursor' is that giant black underline that goes clear across the screen. When you press the collar of the 5-way controller, it moves the underline bar up, down, offers a quick delete or opens a secondary menu related to the underlined collection or title.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 2:02:33 PM PDT
Me too. The fact that the manuals are online is a bonus. I read the manuals for both the Fire and the basic $79 models before I bought them. Any question I have has been answered by looking it up.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 2:05:53 PM PDT
Amazing how that works, isn't it? ;)

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 2:07:39 PM PDT
Exactly. Cereal boxes. Shampoo bottles. Pretty much anything and everything with writing on it. ANd when I have an issue with a device, the first thing I do is refer back to the manual.

I did receive help on another forum.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2012 2:09:07 PM PDT
Yep. The manual was/is a big help. All kinds of nifty info in those. ;-)

I've learned some tricks and tips by lurking in the forum, but the manual covered all the basics.

<Exactly. Cereal boxes. Shampoo bottles. Pretty much anything and everything with writing on it.>

I thought I was the only one. I can't look at anything with words and not read it.
