    Cant delete prior versions of windows


    Hello,


    I am not tech savvy so I will try to explain my problem as best as I can. I have a Lenovo Yoga. I mainly use Photoshop in it, so I have very few programs installed on it the biggest being iTunes, and I keep deleting some I don't think I need in order to free up space. My "disc" gets full very quickly, I have to run clean up too frequently. I keep seeing that I have almost 9 gigs in temporary files, but when everything loads up, it isn't there. Someone told me it is prior versions of windows. My computer can't even update the latest version due to lack of space. I figured out how to see and possibly delete prior updates I see three in the control panel/programs/programs and features/uninstalled updates. I cannot uninstall anything on there. I have tried but it just doesn't work. I need help figuring it out. I am beyond frustrated with Windows and Microsoft in general, and I don't even use this laptop often. I cannot imagine people with this sort of problem everyday!!

    :)

    KB3073930 only for prior Window10 versions Not for Version 1709

    • I have Windows 10 home version 1709. You all made up KB3073930 for prior home versions but it does not work for
      Version 1709. Are they going to put out a KB for 1709 to use? Andre De Costa's
      article is for prior versions of Windows 10.
    Thank you

    Deleting contacts from Windows 10


    When you say Windows Mail Live are you referring to Mail app or Windows Live Mail?

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check if it helps.


    • Open Windows Live Mail.
    • Press Ctrl + 3 using your keyboard. Right-click on the contact to delete it if it is a single contact.
    • Highlight all contacts by pressing Ctrl + A.
    • Click Delete located on the Ribbon bar.
    • Click OK when you see the message These contacts will also be deleted from Hotmail, Messenger, and other Windows Live services.

    After following the steps above, all your contacts that you have manually added to your account will be deleted however, contacts coming from third-party sites such as Facebook will not be deleted unless you remove Facebook from your account.

    For Mail app:

    Open People app then delete the contact.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.
