How do you edit clippings?

Is there any way to delete individual clippings from the Kindle. I have quickly ended up with a lot of 'noise' and would like to edit some out.

Thanks in advance.

Connect your Kindle to a PC with the USB cord, open the Kindle using a file manager (Explorer in Windows - Mac not sure, Linux take your pick).

Go to the Documents folder and look for "My Clippings.txt", edit it and save it.

You plug the Kindle in to your Mac or PC (with a USB cord). When it mounts on the desktop, looking like any other disk drive --- find the file "My Clippings" and edit it.

Be careful to leave a consistent format in the file. I've had my Kindle refuse to recognize an editted file. I had to tell the Kindle to delete it, and then the next clipping or bookmark created a whole new file. So, it can sometimes work better to just move the whole file to your computer, and let the Kindle start afresh with a new file.
