Change the View option in Manage Your Kindle to Books and you won't see the dictionaries at all.

You gave your permission when you bought the Kindle! Amazon provide all that is necessary to support several different languages. Many people want to read books in other languages apart from English and for them these dictionaries are necessary. Kindles are international devices not just for the English speaking world.

OK ta. I just hate it when things are done without my permission and knowledge.

There is nothing you can do about it.

Kindles support a lot of different languages and the dictionaries are there for those languages. They aren't taking up space you can use so why worry about them?

Just went to Manage my Kindle online and found a load of dictionaries have been loaded onto it that I don't want and will never use. It says they cannot be deleted ! Why on earth have Amazon done this and what can I do about it ?
