In this article, I will show you how to delete photos from your Amazon Fire Tablet. We will also discuss some of the pros and cons of deleting photos from your tablet.

How To Delete All Photos from the Fire Tablet

This is the simplest way how to delete all your photos from the Fire Tablet:

  1. On your Fire Tablet, tap the Apps menu option.
  2. Select the option for Local after that.
  3. Finally, click the Gallery button.
  4. Tap the three dots icon as long as a window pops up. Select “Move to Trash” from the drop-down menu that appears.
  5. Select:
  • Amazon Photos to remove it from your Amazon Photos account only.
  • Your device to remove it completely from your device only.
  • Amazon Photos and Your device to remove it from both.

You may also utilize this strategy to delete your videos too. Alternatively, you may remove your Fire Tablet photographs from the carousel right away. Simply tap and hold any item that you wish to remove (photo, video, or app) and click “Remove from device”

Be careful with what you delete. Deleting your photos, videos, or applications is permanent. You won’t be able to recover the deleted data. It may be more prudent to retain the critical data on your PC or in Amazon Drive instead of deleting it completely.

To factory reset your Amazon Fire Tablet: Click on Settings then tap on Device Options. Next, click on the Reset to Factory Defaults option which you can find at the bottom of your screen. Select Yes if you want to reset your device. Note that everything will be erased and this includes media, files, and photos that aren’t saved in Amazon Cloud or other accounts such as Facebook.
