Hi! Unfortunately, the older versions are not available for download.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

It turns out that I have now found a couple of sites that have the previous versions for download. I will try them.

Please be careful on sites that claim to have downloads. A majority of the sites are filled with malware.

I still want to know how to use the Kindle PC to select, copy and then paste to a word doc.

You mentioned downloading and installing the older version of Kindle desktop that you were able to copy/paste previously with. Did you download and run the old version but still cannot copy/paste?

Do you copy and paste by right clicking on the text and selecting copy? If yes, try highlighting the passage and pressing CTRL and C together on the keyboard then try pasting into a Word document by pasting CTRL and V or right click and select paste
