    Anyone have a Kindle or use Kindle App in Windows 10?

    As mentioned, I have a Kindle App on my Windows 10 tablet. I just bought and received my first book for the Kindle App. Right now, I have no idea if its on my tablet or in the Cloud. If I have it, is there any way to back it up to a flash drive so I don't loose it? I do have a habit of messing with the tablet and ending up using a earlier restore point or repairing Windows 10.

    p.s. Anyway to print a page or two from a Kindle book?

    From memory, if it is stored locally on the tablet it has a little tick mark at the bottom right of the cover

    you cant (easily) back up from using the app, but everything is stored with Amazon, the only way i know of permanently deleting the book is via the amazon website, you cannot permanently delete from the app

    I think you are correct. Also if my memory is correct, books not stored locally on the tablet have a little cloud icon.

    Amazon keeps a copy of your purchased book in their own "cloud" and you can re-download the book to authorized devices and software as many times as you need to without violating their terms of use agreement. Amazon also allows you to have several different devices the book can be on at the same time - you can run the Kindle app in Windows, a Kindle app on an Android device, and a true Kindle e-reader, all with the same book on it. However, you might have to go into device management on Amazon's website and clear out old devices if, for example, you reload Windows and the Kindle App and it gets detected as a new device.

    The Kindle app is absolutely terrible, if you want an app that manages your books, where you can create categories, export/import books, convert books, enable plugins to suit and a whole host of other options, then Calibre is what you need, it is free but well worth a donation. The only downside of it is it is a tad difficult to get you head round, but it is well worth putting a bit of time into and reading up on various guides.

    However, Calibre is only for managing e-books that are not protected by DRM and Kindle books purchased from Amazon are DRM protected. There were a lot of posts deleted from this thread since it started.

    I know there are some people who don't agree with DRM and it's limitations. But please remember, when you purchase a book from Amazon for Kindle you are agreeing to the terms and limitations:

    Amazon.com Help: Kindle Store Terms of Use

    "Reading Application" means software we make available that permits users to shop for, download, browse, or use the Kindle Store or Kindle Content on a Supported Device.

    1. Kindle Content

    Use of Kindle Content. Upon your download of Kindle Content and payment of any applicable fees (including applicable taxes), the Content Provider grants you a non-exclusive right to view, use, and display such Kindle Content an unlimited number of times, solely through a Reading Application or as otherwise permitted as part of the Service, solely on the number of Supported Devices specified in the Kindle Store, and solely for your personal, non-commercial use. Kindle Content is licensed, not sold, to you by the Content Provider. The Content Provider may include additional terms for use within its Kindle Content. Those terms will also apply, but this Agreement will govern in the event of a conflict. Some Kindle Content, such as interactive or highly formatted content, may not be available to you on all Reading Applications.

    Limitations. Unless specifically indicated otherwise, you may not sell, rent, lease, distribute, broadcast, sublicense, or otherwise assign any rights to the Kindle Content or any portion of it to any third party, and you may not remove or modify any proprietary notices or labels on the Kindle Content. In addition, you may not attempt to bypass, modify, defeat, or otherwise circumvent any digital rights management system or other content protection or features used as part of the Service.
    If you don't agree with the terms and conditions of the service, then the answer that we give on this forum is to not click on the "I Agree" button before you subscribe to or use that service.

    The normal limit set by Amazon for e-books is that they can be on 6 "Reading Applications" and Supported Devices registered to your account at one time.
