  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen and then tap Settings.
  2. Tap Device Options, and then tap Storage.
    • Tap 1-Tap Archive to free up storage space for items that have not been recently used. 1-Tap Archive will group items that have not been used recently. Tap Archive to remove all of them from your device.
    • Tap a content category from the list to see the file names and sizes. Select the checkbox next to any items you want to remove, and then tap Remove. Essential programs in the System Applications and System folder are needed to operate your Fire tablet, and cannot be modified or removed.
