When I click the Menu button there are 8 headings starting with Turn on Wireless. When it comes to the 3rd heading "View Archived Items" it is not highlighted and I cannot click on it along with " Create New Collection" and Sync and Check for Items", all the rest are highlighted and are ok. Please help we are new to Kindles!!!!

These options won't be available to you until you've connected to WiFi for the 1st time.

You have to turn on your wifi and connect to Amazon just once to activate the greyed out stuff. If you don't have wifi and can't connect, give them a call and they'll sort it out for you. Also, make sure you have registered your kindle to your account.

Hey Suze, great minds and all, and only 30 seconds apart. Must be that twin thing kicking in.

Yep. Poor Brian. I am actually talking to my sister on the Beep thread, and if we all carry on he isn't going to know where he's up to.

It's funny how these electrical things keep crashing , but then they're able to bring themselves back to life - why don't manufacturers just make someting that works?

Glad to be of help. Hope you are enjoying your kindle and don't forget to come back if you have any more problems or just want to chat. While you're here, have a look at the free books for today.

I think I'm going to make a concerted effort to confuse him as much as possible from now on. Bless him.

huh. With me and the wi fi is on by the way the only things that are greyed out "Change Font Size" and "View Downloading Items" why is this? Not that it bugs me or anything but i just wanted to see if anything on my menu was greyed out. Huh.

It hadn't crashed, that is how it is designed to work. It's in the manual.

You can only change font size when you are reading a book, and you can only view downloading items if you have items downloading.
