It's the "documents" folder on your Kindle.

I just connected my Kindle to my computer and it pulled my Kindle up and I just deleted from the folder that was named documents.

Is it possible to allow indexing to occur (so that when you search in a book it allows you to search for words in it),

but when you are in the home screen and seeing the list of books, you only search for within the Book title and author name only? About 95% of searches I do in the home screen are for a particular book title or book author. It should be done like doing search in Calibre. Anyone knows if this is possible?

I _THINK_ the only limited search is when you are in one particular book. I don't think you can search selectively from the home screen (book list). It would be nice and maybe I'm wrong.

They should make while typing a setting on the right with the following options:
1. Search Index (Searches only Book Titles and Authors' Names)
2. Search Catalog (Searches all books contents i.e. Titles, Authors Names and Entire text of books)
3. Search Book Contents (Search inside a single book's text)

And you select only what you want. I see that about 95% of my searches are to find a particular book which I remember the name, such as 'Moby' for 'Moby Dick'.
