Before getting to the heart of this tutorial and explaining how to see Amazon archived orders , let me give you some additional information on archiving orders placed on the famous online shopping site.
As you well know, by accessing the Returns and Orders section of your Amazon account, you can view the complete history of your purchases, including gift vouchers and any applications downloaded on the Amazon Fire TV Stick .
Through the Archive order option it is possible to remove a single order (up to a maximum of 500 orders) so as not to see it anymore in the history of their purchases: a useful solution especially for those who share their Amazon account with other people and want hide certain elements.
The “hidden” purchases are simply moved indefinitely in the Archived Orders section from which it is still possible to view all the details of each order, such as the purchase date and the total amount.
Furthermore, at any time, it is possible to cancel the archiving of an order and bring it back in the history of your purchases. However, it is not possible to cancel archived Amazon orders . Is everything clear so far? Well, then let’s take action.

How to see Amazon archived orders from the app
If you’re wondering if it’s possible to see Amazon archived orders from the app , I’m sorry to tell you the answer is no. In fact, using the Amazon app for Android and iPhone / iPad it is not allowed to archive new orders or view the complete list of those already archived.
The only option available to you is to search for an item included in a hidden order and click on the option to view its details. Note, however, that this solution will only allow you to see a single archived order.
In this case, start the Amazon app, press the little man icon located in the bottom menu and tap on the item My orders . In the new screen that appears, enter the name of an item included in the archived order that you want to view in the Search all orders field and tap the Search button . Then click on the View order details option for the item you searched for, in order to view all the details of the archived order.
If, on the other hand, you want to see the complete list of orders stored on Amazon and you do not have a computer available, you can use the browser installed on your mobile device (eg Chrome on Android and Safari on iOS / iPadOS), connect to the main page of Amazon, request the desktop version of the site and act from there.
To proceed, therefore, connected to the official Amazon site , tap the Login button , enter the data associated with your account in the Email (phone for mobile account) and Password fields and press the Login button again to log in.
Now, click on your name , at the top right, and select the option Track and manage your orders from the opened menu. Once this is done, you need to switch to the desktop version of the Amazon site: if you are using Chrome , tap on the three dots icon located at the top right and select the Desktop site option from the opened menu. If, on the other hand, you have an iPhone , tap on the A A icon visible in the address bar and press the Request desktop site item in the menu that opens.
At this point, all you have to do is follow the instructions I gave you previously to see Amazon archived orders from your computer : in the My orders screen , locate the item [number] orders placed , press on the Last 3 months option and select Archived Orders option , so you can view all the orders you have previously archived.
To cancel the archiving of an order, identify the one you are interested in and tap on the Cancel archive order item . The order in question will be available again in the My Orders section of your account, also accessible using the Amazon app.
