I downloaded some free apps that I wish to remove however, when I delete them from my Kindle they still appear in the apps window, yet when I select them I only have the option to install or add to favorites. I went ahead and remove the apps from the MY KINDLE website however as I said earlier they still appear on my Kindle. Any help?

Brian - With wi-fi on go to Settings and Sync. That should remove them from the Cloud on your Fire.

Brian, if you hold your finger or a stylus down on the app, it will ask you if you want to delete the app from the device. The apps will remain in the archives or on Cloud.

Thank you! Sync'ing solved the problem. I didn't know that I had to manually sync I thought the kindle did it itself. Thanks again for your help.

To remove an app, go to apps press on device then the app you want to remove. There are some apps ie amazon store that you can't delete.

Good luck deleting apps. I want to delete my email since there's no way to sign out of it, which is a HUGE security issue in the event that someone else gets hold of my Kindle Fire. I'm about ready to pack the thing up and send it back. I don't like this at all!

Thanks Emerald. I used your advice and removed that unneeded app. Thanks for your posting. Too many people ask a simple question only to find 200 responses to the contrary. I was fortunate enough to find yours, thanks for the help.

On your computer got to Manage Your Kindle on Amazon - once there select 'Manage your Apps' on the left side menu, it's under 'Other Digital Content' - scroll to find the app you want deleted and then in the Action box select delete. Give it a few minutes the go to KF and sync. I should be gone

Some of the apps that came on the KF cannot be deleted. Sometimes the deletion takes some time if it was an app downloaded from Amazon. Try syncing in another hr or so. I remember deleting an app from Manage my Kindle and it took a day before it went bye-bye

You can delete apps that were not pre-installed permanently by going to https://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/your-account/myapps, then deleting them from there. Then, on your Fire, go to Apps-->Store---->Settings----My Apps----> Click on Refresh, near the top right.
