Everything defaults to the first Kindle. How do I get my purchases to automatically go to the new Kindle without deregistering the other one?

Go to the Manage Your Kindle page on the website and then click on Manage Your Devices and then use Edit to change the name of one of them so that the new one is listed first alphabetically. Then turn on that Kindle's wireless and sync it to the account using the menu item for that on the Kindle. Its name will change, but that might take a while to happen.

That will not work for all combinations of Kindles? What are the models of the two Kindles?

Thank you for your help. I will try your suggestions. Before I posted, I did find the Edit buttons, but did not find anything that allowed me to change the order. I will see if I can change them with your instructions. My first Kindle is the original, no bells or whistles. I just purchased a new generation Kindle Fire HD 7".

You don't have to change the order manually. Changing the name will do that automatically.

I'm not sure of the new Fire HD is still treated as an app like the earlier models were. If that is the case, the Fire can't be listed before the e-ink Kindles.

You can't force a change of order except by renaming them (because they're listed alphabetically). However, e-ink kindles are always listed before kindle apps (and the Fires run the kindle app), so you can't force a Fire to be listed before an e-ink kindle, unfortunately.

CBP: Unless the new Fire is a Fire HDX - they are treated like the e-ink Kindles in the alphabetical listing.

Thank you all for your replies. I will make the attempt to change the names so that the one I want first is listed first alphabetically. If not, oh well.... Y'all have a great night. Thanks again.

Thanks, John, I hadn't realised that.
