We have a Kindle 5th or 6th generation (4 buttons and the four-way selector) and want to delete all the old book titles off it and give it to a child. Is there any way to delete faster than right-clicking on each title and arrowing down to the "remove" choice? There are over 100 titles on this device...
For some reason I am not able to reply to any of the helpful suggestions I have gotten here. But: when I press the Home key (looks like a house) all I get is a list of these blasted titles (left over from library books). Under Settings, I only get Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi Networks, Registration, Password, Language, Device Info, Dictionaries and Page Refresh. I have found no Factory Reset. I was able to de-register it to my husband, but that is all so far.
My husband says this is obsolete as a device and every kid in the country has a better one already, but I cannot bring myself to throw away something that works, however crudely. There is no user guide on it and I do not know what else to try.
Update: I stumbled across the Left Arrow, which cut out several steps, and I was able to delete all 125 book titles (not books, just titles). I also found the User Guide! Now I will try to find a child who wants a way to read books -- I surely hope there are still some of them out there!!! Thanks to all who tried to help me in this quest.

From the Home page, press the Menu button, select Settings, press the Menu button again, choose the Reset option. That will clear it off and deregister it from your account. You can then set it up again and register it to whatever account the child will use for his/her content.
