How to Organize Your Kindle Fire Favorites

When you’re on a roll using Kindle Fire for accessing all kinds of content, the Carousel can get a bit crowded. You may have to swipe five or six times to find what you need. That’s where Favorites comes in.

The concept of Favorites is probably familiar to you from working with web browsers, in which Favorites is a feature that allows you to put websites you visit frequently in a Favorites folder. On the Kindle Fire, Favorites is also a place for saving frequently used content which takes the form of a virtual bookcase.

If, for example, you’re reading a book you open often or you play a certain piece of music frequently, place it in the Favorites area of the Kindle Fire Home screen, and you can find it more quickly.

By default, Favorites includes an Amazon Store app, Pulse (a news aggregator app), the IMDb movie database app, and the Facebook app. To pin an item to Favorites, press and hold it in the Carousel or a library, and then select Add to Favorites from the menu that appears.

To remove content from Favorites, press and hold the item, and then choose Remove from Favorites or Delete from the menu that appears. Remove from Favorites unpins the item from Favorites, although it’s still available to you on the Carousel and in the related library. Delete removes the item from the device (although it’s still archived in Amazon’s Cloud).
