Manage Kindle Fire Bookmarks in Silk Browser

When you get your new Kindle Fire, the Silk browser comes preloaded with popular website bookmarks. Here’s how to get rid of them and add your own.

Open the Kindle Fire browser and tap Web at the top.

Kindle Silk Browser

Then tap the Bookmarks icon at the bottom of the screen.
Bookmarks Icon

To delete any of these, tap and  hold a bookmark until you see the following menu. Tap Delete.


Then tap OK when the Delete Bookmark confirmation message comes up.


Do that for each preloaded bookmark you no longer want. Much cleaner!

Bookmarks Deleted

Now add the bookmarks that you want. While on a site, tap the bookmarks icon at the bottom. Then tap the plus sign that’s displayed on the page’s thumbnail.


Type in a name for the bookmark and tap OK.

Add Bookmark

Do that for each page you want to bookmark. Here I deleted all of the preloaded bookmarks and added eight new ones.


If you haven’t done so already, make sure you protect your private data. Enable the Lock Screen password on your Kindle Fire.

    Thanks for posting this!
    MyHabit is the first one I wanted to delete too.
    Am adding this site, though!
    Great work, and thanks again.
    A backspace keyboard button that doesn’t delete would be nice because could’ve changed ‘great work’s to GROOVY WORK! (Ugh! It added an s to work – HATE that & am too lazy to delete to that point and retype.)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for this solution. So easy, but I couldn’t find it on my Kindle.

    Silk doesn’t ask what folder to put a new bookmark in. How do you set up Silk to do that?
