Frequently Asked Questions on Kindle Bookmarks

Q1: Kindle bookmarks disappeared

My Kindle bookmarks, notes and highlights are all missing on my Kindle for PC(version 1.26). Within Kindle for PC on Windows 10, when I bookmark a page, it no longer shows up in the notebook section. What’s more, my notes, highlights and bookmarks were gone. Any solution?

Workaround: I have tried many solutions, such as redownloading the kindle books, turning on Sync on Manage your Device and content, or updating kindle for pc to the latest version. All these solutions did not work for me. Anyway, the only workaround is checking the kindle bookmarks and highlights on Kindle cloud Reader online.

On Kindle cloud reader, click on "Show note and marks" button as the below picture.

Q2: How to transfer bookmarks between kindles?

For kindle books purchased from Amazon website, you just need to download the kindle books and the bookmarks will automatically sync. If not, please turn on the Device Synchronization under Preference tab of Manage Your Content and Devices.

For sideloading books, connect the old Kindle to the computer over USB. Each ebook has another folder with the same name. If you open it, you will see there are many files with the same name but with different extension. Copy them to the new Kindle, and your notes, highlights, and bookmarks will be transferred to your new Kindle. Also, there is a folder named: My Clippings.sdr which contains all your notes. Please also copy this one to ensure your notes have been transferred successfully.

What page do I go on to get to my bookmarks?
01/14/2022 01:55:23
Tapping or pressing on ‘Bookmarks’ does not take me to a pre-existing bookmark.  All it does is bookmark the page I am on.  I can find absolutely no way to get back to a pre-existing bookmark and find the function useless.

Is there some way you can show or check the date the bookmark was added?
