Kindle Book Opens to Wrong Page Instead of Cover
For some reason my kindle book opens in the middle of the Table of Contents, rather than to the cover. How can I fix this? I'm not great with code, so please let me know the easiest way possible.

I've been having a similar problem—but only when a colleague tests the files, generated in Kindle Previewer 2.922 for Mac (and recent, older versions of the Previewer), on her Kindle device. Unfortunately, she hasn't been able to tell me the particular Kindle device she has, but it is an e-ink Kindle, purchased in the last three years. Note that in the Previewer program, the files open to the first pages of the Introduction or text, never to the end of the contents.
This wouldn't be such a problem if the book opened to the *beginning* of the contents, or to the beginning of any section. However, it tends to open to the end of the contents page—almost as if it's attempting to get to the text that begins directly after it (in most cases the Introduction) but can't quite do it. Setting the Semantic "Text" in Sigil does not affect the open position.
I've read up on this issue in various forums (going back several years), but haven't found one that satisfies the issue.

The short answer is:
You will beat your head against the brick wall of making this work on every device/app out there and probably not succeed. And on the off chance that the stars align and you DO create a kindlebook that opens at the exact right place (on every device/app out there) ... when you upload it to KDP, Amazon's process will very likely change it to what they think it should be anyway.
