You can add notes and highlight text or passages in the books on your Amazon Kindle Fire tablet just like you can in a physical book.
- Tap and hold the first word in the text you wish to add a note to or highlight. It should become selected and you can drag your finger across additional text.
- Once you have selected the text, let go and a menu should appear where you can select “Note” or “Color“(newer Fire)/”Highlight“(older Fire).
- If you selected “Note“, a window will appear where you can type your note. Tap “Save” when you’re finished.
Highlighted text and notes can be quickly accessed by tapping the center of the screen and selecting the “Notepad” icon. On older Kindle Fires, you can tap the center of the screen, then the “Menu” icon.
This post applies to Kindle Fire 1 and 2 as well as HD6, HD8, and HD10 versions.
How do I highlight passages from multiple pages?
Drag the brackets down to the bottom of the page. The Fire will flip to the next page where you can continue highlighting text.
How do I delete notes?
Tap the center of the screen, select the “Notepad” icon on newer versions of Kindle Fire, or “Menu” on older versions. From there, you should have a “Trash” icon you can select to delete notes.
