How to remove annoying top menu bar when reading books on K4 NT?

Hello everyone!

I have a Kindle 3 wi-fi, and recently bought a Kindle 4 NT. I think it's awesome, and since I rarely use the keyboard, I'll keep the K4 instead.

But there's one annoying thing: when I'm reading books on my K3, there's only the book and me. When I'm reading it on my K4, there's the annoying top menu bar, displaying the title, the HOUR (which is a pain - I don't wanna know if I spent 1 or 5 hours reading, just lemme forget about the time), and that ridiculous little airplane when wi-fi is off.

That was a minor annoyance at first, but it's growing on me. I can't stop looking at the clock or the little airplane, and it's very distracting.

Not to mention that it occupies the equivalent to 2 lines of text (comparing to the kindle 3, the new kindle has 2 lines less).

Thanks everyone!

That's Odd. On my K4 The menu bar disappears after I open a book and start reading. I would call Kindle support.

Hello Blossom, thank you for your reply! It's good to know that it might be a bug or something - I thought it was a feature, which would make it harder to get rid of the menu bar.

I will try to restore to factory settings, and see if that works! If not, I'll call Kindle support!

Thanks!

I actually liked having the Title and time always displayed on my Kindle 2. I wish that Amazon would let it be an option.

Before restoring, try to restart the reader.

I don't have that either. Mine is like Blossom's. It disappears on the first page turn when I'm reading.
