Tip Two: How to add to favorites.

Below that are shelves for items you want to add to your favorites. To add something,"long press" the icon in the carousel and tap the "Add to Favorites" option. And there it is. To remove it, "long press" the icon on the shelve and tap the "Remove from Favorites" option. And there it goes. Simple right?
You can also rearrange your Kindle Fire icons. You do this by "tapping, holding and dragging" the icon wherever you want it to go. To completely remove an icon, "long press" and tap "Remove from Device."
