It’s a common question from a new Kindle owner. “What are all these underlines, and how do I get rid of them?”

Well, let’s start with what they are. Amazon keeps track of words and phrases that are commonly highlighted and displays them, if you choose to view them. If you’re like me and preferred to buy your text books new, the “feature” probably drives you crazy. Fortunately, it’s easy enough to get rid of them, as I’ll show you in the video.

Please note that I’m demonstrating on a Kindle Touch. Your screen may look slightly different, depending on your model.
