How to Open Docs on Your Kindle Fire

After you put a doc onto your Kindle Fire by either sideloading it from a computer or receiving it through Kindle e-mail, you can view the document by following these steps:

  1. Tap the Docs button on the Kindle Fire Home screen to open the Docs library.

    Alternatively, you can locate recently viewed docs on the Carousel and docs you’ve saved to Favorites in the Favorites area of the Home screen.

  2. When the library opens, tap a tab to see the library contents.

    You can choose one of two categories: By Recent or By Title.

  3. When you find the document you want to view, tap to open it.

On the Options bar, if you tap the Menu icon, you can select Grid view or List view. Grid view displays items as thumbnails; List view displays items in a textual list with smaller thumbnails alongside.

At this point in time, you can view only documents, and with Word format documents, you can add notes and highlights. However, you can’t edit them at all.
