The Amazon Kindle, a portable e-book reader, allows you to download e-books, blogs, magazines and newspapers to the device. When not in use, Kindle activates a pre-installed screen saver. You can create a more unique screen saver for your Kindle by downloading a separate image file from your computer.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Connect the Kindle to your computer by attaching one end of the supplied USB cord to the Kindle and the other end to the computer.

  2. 2

    Click "Start" from your computer's main menu and then click "Computer." Double-click the "K:" drive to open the Kindle folders.

  3. 3

    Double-click "System" to open the folder. Right-click on any open area and click "New," then "Folder." Name the folder "Screen Saver."

  4. 4

    Click and drag the screen saver image you want to use for the Kindle into the new "Screen Saver" folder. Wait for the transfer to complete.

  5. 5

    Disconnect the Kindle from the computer. Press the Kindle's "Menu" option, then press "Settings" and "Update Your Kindle." The new screen saver appears once the update completes.
