Top tip: Kindle for Windows download failures

For a while I was having trouble with downloading newly bought books on the Kindle Windows desktop app. Every time I tried to download a book, a “Download Failed” message came back.

It turns out there is an issue with the Kindle app when user registered on that app changes his or her Amazon password. To fix this issue, following these steps:

  1. From the Tools menu, choose Options.
  2. Under Registration, click Deregister.
  3. Confirm that you want to deregister.
  4. Restart the Kindle application.
  5. From the Tools menu, choose Options.
  6. Under Registration, click Register.
  7. Enter your Amazon account details and click Register.
  8. Restart the Kindle application.

Note that these instructions are for the Kindle desktop app, not the Kindle Windows 8 app.
