I accidentally downloaded something off the web, I tried holding my finger down on it for a menu in the download section, but nothing came up. Any help?

I feel stupid. I hit the check next to it and if gave me a delete option.

Let's have a little respect Fud53 for your fellow Kindle Fire owners!! I read the User Guide, but it only told me how to 'download' not how to 'delete downloads' - however after a lot of head scratching finally worked it out!! And for all those out there who would like to know how, here's a quick synopsis : go to Web page, tap the small box (with three lines in it) at the bottom of page, tap 'downloads' a list of your downloads will then appear, tap each one you wish to delete (orange tick will appear) then tap 'dustbin' top right hand corner under battery indicator. Hey presto deleted. And that's all there is to it - easy when you know!!! Perhaps Fud 53 really didn't know himself????

Took the Kindle out of the case. Now my fat fingers don't touch the box and the download at the same time! Touching only the box brings up an option to delete at the bottom of the screen. Yay!

I have wondered this, myself. I wonder if they ... I dunno. I don't know how to get rid of them, either.

Anyone?

Go into a document. Tap on the box with 3 lines outside the frame of the document. In that menu, click on downloads. Your downloads will appear. Then click on the left box. An orange check mark will show. On the upper right corner there is a trashcan icon..tap on that and your download is gone. Good luck. I had a lot of trouble too until some on this forum explained it.

So in my search on how to delete downloads I was looking at what was using the memory. It showed games and apps, music, video and so on but at the bottom it said other. And it will not open up so you can see what other is. Does anyone have any idea what that is? I am just curious now.
