    Any way to delete app icons?

    Just bought a new 7" model. (I don't need it to do much as I already have a smartphone, iPad, laptop and desktop.) The only thing I've found that's a bit annoying is the million icons for apps I never plan on using.

    Is there any way to hide/delete these?

    Tap and hold the icon. A check mark will come up over it showing it has been selected, then the option to unistall will come up on the upper right corner of the screen.

    That works with apps I've downloaded, but not with the pre-installed apps. There are a bunch of pre-installed apps I'll never use. Those are the icons that get in the way.

    I don't believe you can delete the preinstalled ones. You probably can 'stack' them together into one "folder"

    As was already stated, that doesn't seem to work on pre-installed apps just apps I've downloaded. The "Uninstall" comes up but it's grayed out and can't be used.

    I'll see if I can bundle them up in a folder. Easier to ignore a folder rather than 15 various ocons.

    Seriously, it's quite annoying to have so much ram taken up by apps and such that I have absolutely no intention of ever using. Is there really no way of removing these so we can put the ram to use for things we actually want on our Kindles?

    If removing/deleting the unwanted icons/apps isn't possible, is there a way to root this version of the Kindle?
