Okay...that might be an idiotic question,but after 1/2 hour if search I have to ask...where are the settings on kindle fire?? I am trying to do the one time download for android apps. I read the forum, and there is an explanation, but it asks to go to the web browser and the applications...when you press 'web'it simply goes to the last web page you naviagated...please advice. Thank you!

From the Home page, you can get into Settings by tapping on the little gear icon at the very top.

I do not see a 'gear' icon. At the VERY top of my Kindle Fire HD 8.9" there is not a gear icon. There is only :
Shop Games Apps Books Music Videos Newsstand Audiobooks Web Photos Docs

Above that is a speaker and a battery icon

Please help!

Pull down with your finger from the top of the screen

Docs is the last one. scrolling to the left or right does not reveal any other choices other than the ones I mentioned

Scrolling up or down doesn't reveal anything further. Neither does a left/right scroll.

@Denise - Swipe down from the top of the screen to open the Settings menu on the newer Fires. Only the 1st-generation Fire has a "gear" icon.

ETA: Online documentation for your Fire is here -
