Hello, recieved my mothers kindle for xmas and I've popped her a couple of books on there.

However, I want to delete the dictionaries on there that came as standard.

Is this possible? And if so, how do I do it please?

Because it's just pointless stuff on there, like a thank you letter from amazon etc.

I also need to know how to delete stuff in general to pass on the knowledge?!

connect it to the PC via usb and the files are in one of the folders. alternatively you can highliught the file and click "delete" or "remove" I forget which one it is now.

DO NOT remove the dictionaries. They are extremely useful as if you hover over a word in a book it looks up the meaning in the dictionary.

To delete an item. Go to selected item and move the cursor to the right. A pop-up menu will appear and select the one that removes it from the device. Alternatively, do what #3 suggests and hook it up via USB then delete.
