I downloaded a pdf file from my email on my kindle fire. How do I locate it so I can read it now?

It should be in the Downloads folder.

open the web tab and tap the upper left menu and you'll find a downloads folder

or else get ES File Explorer

and go to your downloads folder

Hi, I suddenly am not getting my downloads from Amazon. I have reset my kindle, looked for the books in the Archives and they are not there. I am connected to my WiFi. What should I do to download the books I have ordered? This hasnt ever happened to me before and it really bums me out. Thanks for your help!!!

bunch of things to try:

1. Turn on wireless and do a sync and check for new items

2. next, look in your archives/cloud and see if it's there (do a search on the title) - if so click on it and it will download

3. go to your Manage Your Kindle page on, hover over the actions button next to the title and select send to Kindle (make sure you pick the correct kindle if you have more than one registered to your account), then turn on your wireless and do a sync and check for new items

4. reboot/reset your kindle (fully charged, unplugged, wireless on, hold power button in for 30 seconds ignoring any messages that pop up), then start at step 1

4.a. Deregister then reregister if you have an e-ink kindle then start at step 1 - DO NOT do this if you have a Kindle Fire

5. try to send it to your kindle through usb ( )

6. contact customer support using the orange Contact Us button to the right
