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