How To Uninstall Apps on Kindle Fire

We don't do many articles about the Kindle. There are only two. How to Factory Reset Kindle Fire and How to Use Kindle Fire as Second Monitor - Second PC Screen. However, for those of you who installed too many apps, here's how to uninstall apps on Kindle Fire devices. You can remove installed apps but not pre-installed apps with these guidelines.

Delete Kindle Apps (Newer Devices)

  • From the “Home” screen, open “Settings."
  • Choose “Apps & Games."
  • Select “Manage All Applications."
  • Swipe over to the right to show “All” apps.
  • Select the app you want to remove, then select “Uninstall."

The above steps work for the Amazon Fire HD6, HD7, HD8 & HD10. However, for older Kindle devices, the below steps work best.

Delete Apps From Kindle Fire (Older Versions)

  • Tap the settings gear on the Home screen, then tap “More."
  • Select “Applications."
  • Set the filter to “All Applications,“ then choose the app you want to uninstall."
  • Tap Uninstall.

Luckily, users may also opt to delete apps on a Kindle via the cloud. To do a cloud uninstall, you need access to the Amazon account linked to your app store.

Uninstall Kindle App From Cloud

  • Log in to your Amazon account.
  • Go to the Manage Your Apps page.
  • From there, select the “Actions” menu next to the app you need to remove.
  • Finally, select “Delete."

You may have to reboot the device for changes to take effect. Additionally, built-in Kindle apps are non-removable. Although, you can do so with root access. You can do a quick Google Search to learn how to do so or make a request for us to do an article on the topic.
