Kindle Skills - music folder and audible folder

October 10, 2010 Cindy O'Neal

Another question from Ralph in Tennessee (thanks so much Ralph) regarding playing music in the background on his Kindle.

As far as music is concerned... you can put any music on your Kindle you want... as long as it is an MP3 file. If you want it to play in the background, put it in the music folder. You can make it play in the background that way by holding down the Alt key, and pressing the space bar once.  You don't have a lot of control for MP3 music files in your music folder. Here are the keyboard shortcuts for background music:

1. Play or Stop Background Audio by using Alt+Space (hold down the Alt key and then Press the Space Bar).
2. While playing background audio, forward to the next track via Alt+F (hold down the Alt key and then press the F key). 

If you want more visible controls, like for your old radio shows, put the MP3 files into the audible folder.... huge difference there.
