I get the answer from the forum.

Locate your Kindle for PC in the "Manage your Devices" section and click the "Deregister" link to deregister. You'll be able to deregister devices that you no longer have access to here as well.

If you uninstall the Kindle for PC application, it will not change your registration. You'll need to use one of the deregistration methods above to disassociate Kindle for PC with your account.

But in Kindle 3, Kindle for PC still exist under the direction "Add other Device Collections" and I have install the kindle for iphone which never show up in my kindle 3.

What should I do to delete the kindle for pc from my kindle 3? (I have degenerated it from "manage my kinde")

Your Kindle for PC isn't part of any other device that you use, so your question is kind of difficult to follow.

All the "Add other Device Collections" (that you see on your K3 when you click on the Archives option) is telling you is that you can use the Collections structure that you created for your Kindle for PC -- which was saved on Amazon's servers at one point. It has nothing to do with the Kindle for PC still being registered to your account. The iPhone not showing up on that list simply means that either you haven't created a collections structure for it, or it hasn't been saved to Amazon's servers. It has nothing to do with whether the iPhone is registered to your Amazon account or not.

Edited for typo

The only devices that are registered to your account will be found on your MYK page, under Manage Your Devices.

The Kindle 3 was the Kindle Keyboard - is that the device you're talking about? If not, you'll need to say what device you are referring to - there's the Basic, the Touch, the Paperwhite, and several Fires.

I get your point. What I mean is that I have delete the software "kindle for PC" from MYK page but I can still use the Collections structure that I have created in it? I wonder if there is any method to remove the collection created in these PCs because I really do not remember where I have installed the kindle for PC.

Yes, it means the kindle keyboard... I am sorry for any confusions.

Have you sync'd the K3 since you deregistered the Kindle for PC app? Maybe that would get rid of it.

Why does it matter, anyway? You don't see it unless you click on Archives and then click on Import other Device Collections. It's not taking up any space on your K3.

I have synced the K3 and just want to know the reason.... I thought amazon should remove these collection automatically.

Of course, thanks for your help. I will pay my attention to more meaningful thing 😄

What do you mean, you "don't remember where you installed Kindle for PC"? It's either on your PC, or it isn't. You can search for it, and you can figure out whether you still have it there or have uninstalled it.

But it's still irrelevant. The collections you created in it are backed up on Amazon's servers. Is that really a major problem?

I just want to delete the collections which has been stored in Amazon's servers. But I do not know on which computer I have installed the kindle for PC software and created the collection. Of course, it does not matter that it exist there but I just do not want to see it ......

It doesn't matter where you originally created the collection. You can delete it from any Kindle registered to your account. It is stored in the Cloud.

But it still exists in the cloud... and will pop out as long as you syn it with your kindle for PC software.

It doesn't sync to anything. It exists on Amazon's servers, that's why you see it. If you want to use that collections structure, it might be available for use. If you don't want to use that collections structure, don't use it. It's not like it's on your home page blinking at you, right?

However, contact customer service to see if there is a way to keep it from showing up on your list if it's that important to you.

If you changed the collections on that K4PC, the backed up list would change too. But since you can't remember where you installed K4PC, that's clearly not your concern. If you fear those collections being imported to a new K4PC installation, you can stop worrying. Each installation - even a new one on the same device - counts separately.
