    Question Kindle Fire 10...Uninstalling App (Icon Remains)

    I recently received the new Kindle Fire 10 for Christmas. I downloaded an app but decided to uninstall it, but the Icon is still visible. Anyone have any idea how to get rid of it?

    It should have gone with the uninstall, I've never had this happen.

    Try pressing on the icon for about five seconds, a tick will appear on the icon and a box asking to / uninstall will appear, click yes/ uninstall and see what happens!

    Nb, you can't remove any of the Amazon installed icons, they will just sit there greyed out, but you say its one that you installed?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Finally got it to disappear by holding the powerbutton down for 40 seconds and rebooting the Fire.

    Yes, turning computers off and on, seems to cure most things, should have lead with that

    That's quite different from iPad. I also had the similar problem on my Amazon Fire tablet but I had it solved after contacting the support team.
