The kindle fire User manual is built in to the fire and should be in your docs tab area.

If you really want to read the manual on your PC (rather than your Kindle), download the free Kindle for PC application.

Unless the DRM has been removed (or the books weren't DRM'd in the first place) you can't just move books from a Kindle Keyboard to a Kindle Fire. Each book is encoded only to work with the device for which it was originally purchased.

If you purchased the books from Amazon, all those books can be found under the Books tab on the Fire - just tap on the "Cloud" button and you'll see all your previous purchases. If something is not there for some reason, you can use the Amazon website to manage your digital content and re-send the books to the Fire.

If the books were not originally purchased from Amazon, you can transfer them to the Fire with a USB cord - just connect the Fire to the PC, then drag the books in to the "Books" folder on the Fire. In some cases certain file formats will appear under Docs instead of Books.

In my opinion, the easiest way to get books from your PC on to the Fire is to convert them in to Mobi format using Calibre, which is a shareware tool for ebook management.

You can download the PDF file from the Amazon Kindle support website and easily view it on your PC.
