Flash! Download the new User’s Guide from Your Orders

One of the things that was a bit of a surprise to me was that when I got my new Kindle and updated to 2.5, the latest edition of the User’s Guide wasn’t sent to my Kindle.

Yes, I read those beginning to end :) , but they are also great to have so you can search them when you have a question.

Well, I got my manually from the Help page:

Kindle Documentation

However, then you have to put into your Kindle’s documents folder using your USB…that’s not terrible, but it isn’t as cool as doing it wirelessly.  :)

In this

Amazon Kindle Community thread

forum member pointed out that the 5th edition Kindle User’s Guide may be available in Your Orders at

http://www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle

When you get there, you can search for User’s Guide.  When you find it, you’ll see options to send it to a particular device.

It appears that not everybody might have it yet.  I suspect you might need to be updated to 2.5.3 before you get it.  My manual update got me 2.5.2, then the system updated it to 2.5.3, I believe.

Anyway, I’m happy to have the latest guide on my Kindle.  :)

    Quick question. When I went to the manageyourkindle part, I have 3 user guides published by Amazon:

    Kindle User Guide
    Kindle User Guide 3rd edition
    Kindle User Guide 4th edition

    with the 4th edition published Nov 23, 2009. I do not think this is the right user guide, right? I am upgraded to 2.5.3, but I do not believe I can find the guide.
