Customer Question

I have an old kindle. I want to reset the factory settings (to remove everything from it) and give it to a friend. How do I go to Menu? There seems to be no button for menu!

Can you tell me the model of the Kindle please?

Thank you
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No. It has no model written on it. It is grey colour, and has 4 buttons and a central "wheel" button, all at the bottom. Pages are turned on the sides.
