    How to Clear Information from your Live Tiles in Windows 10

    Tiles - Clear Information from in Windows 10 [​IMG]
    Information A tile is a modern app’s representation on the Start menu in Windows 10, and can be either static or live.

    A static tile displays the default content, which is generally just a full-tile logo image for the app.

    Live tiles can show updates from your friends, new email, app notifications, and the next appointment on your calendar at a glance, even without opening an app. And because everyone who uses the PC can sign in with their own Microsoft account, each person can personalize their own tiles, colors, and backgrounds.

    For more information about live tiles, see: Guidelines for tiles and badges - Windows app development


    Sometimes your live tiles may continue to display old information, even after it has been deleted. For example, the Photos app's live tile still displaying images you deleted from your Pictures library.

    This tutorial will show you how to clear information from live tiles for all your modern Store apps pinned to your Start menu to refresh the tiles in Windows 10.

    Note After you clear information from live tiles, it will take a little bit before they start automatically showing information again.


    EXAMPLE: Live Tiles on Start Menu

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  6. Clear Pagefile on Shutdown


    I've been looking into clearing the pagefile, and I found the following steps at a somewhat dated webpage:
    1. In the registry editor, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
    2. Set ClearPageFileAtShutdown to the REG_DWORD value of 1.
    3. Restart Windows.
    I'm just wondering whether those steps are still valid, and, if so, does clearing the pagefile work as advertised?
