  1. Files not showing the amount of GB being used


    My computer is full on space, and it shows most of my GB is being used by applications. When I go to my applications and sort all by size, it shows one application taking 18 GB and another taking 2 GB. The rest take less than 1 GB yet it says my applications used 148 GB on my laptop. How can I see the real size of my applications or anything else taking up a lot of space to free some up?

    :)

  2. steam games won't show up in program files(x86)

    Hi,

    We suggest that you check if the folder is hidden by following these steps:

    • In the search box on the taskbar, type folder, and then select
      Show hidden files and folders from the search results.
    • Under Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then select
      OK.
    Let us know how it goes.

  4. Files not showing the amount of GB being used

    1.63 gb in empty photos app

    Hi James,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    • Is there any hidden files and folders in photo app?
    This issue could be caused due to a corrupted system file. I would suggest you try these steps and check:

    I would suggest you try the restore library option and check if it helps. Please back up all the files in the library before trying this, just to make sure you don’t lose any files. Refer these steps:

    • Open Windows explorer
    • In the left panel, locate Library and right click on it
    • Click “restore default libraries” option
    • Check if the issue persists.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
