When the Kindle Fire first came out, you could delete or favorite items from the Carousel on the home screen. A new feature of the 6.2.1 update is, it lets you remove items from the Carousel and Favorites.
Update: This process of removing items also works on the current Fire HD tablets, too. It is a system-wide feature of Amazon’s Fire OS that’s included on all of its Fire line of tablets.
The Carousel is at the top of your Kindle Fire home screen. There you can scroll through recently used items with a cover flow-like experience. To remove an item, tap and hold the item’s icon until the dialog appears. Then tap Remove from Home.
You can also scroll over to the “For You” section, tap and hold an item, and tap Remove from Home” to get rid of it.
This tip helps keep your Kindle Fire more organized and lets you hide the embarrassing books you’re reading and other items from showing up. Also, if you don’t have a Fire HD tablet yet, check out these deals on them from Amazon:
