I can't figure out how to get titles completely off of my kindle. Do I need to have my kindle plugged into my PC to do this?

When you Remove from Device, the book is gone from your Kindle. It's not taking any room just because the title is listed in archives. Archives are on the Amazon server. The archive folder is showing you what has been bought on that account that is no longer on your Kindle.

If you want to delete a book from your account so that you will never see it again, then you'd go to your Manage Your Kindle page (after Removing from Device). Find the book and delete it from your account.

Once you synch your Kindle, the deleted book's title will no longer be shown in archives and you will have no further access to that book.

Syncing is done via wireless (wifi or 3G) connections. The USB connection is just to copy files to the Kindle device.

On the home page click Menu > Sync and check for new items with the wireless on.

Did you move the cursor to the title, click right and select Remove or Delete?

Archives = Cloud

you just remove the book from your Kindle an a link will remain in the Cloud to the book where it's stored on your account

the only way to remove books from your archives is to go to your account and permanently remove them, then sync your device and they'll be gone from your kindle

they should have removed after the sync from your kindle (unless it's a Touch and then a reboot with the wireless on usually removes them)

I understand the android phones take a couple of days and syncs to go away, or at least this is what someone said in another thread

As long as your friend used your account to buy the books, the books will stay on your account. If you delete them from your Manage Your Kindle page and ever want to read them again, you or your friend will have to PAY for them again (unless they were free and remain free).

Deregistering your Kindle won't make a difference--when you register it again the books will still show up in your Archives/Cloud unless you permanently delete them.
