    Two not to, sorry about that.

    I have two ASUS Computers.

    G73SW from Win7pro to Win10 Win10 program 1size 18.7gb 92,424 files. Old Win 27.2gb 117.322 files.

    G73JH from Win 8.1 to Win10 program size 16.9gb 104.641 files. Old Win 16.466gb 138.595 files.

    Why the size differences in both program sizes and files? Any reason not to delete the old Windows files?

    :)

    Why are UIs different sizes?

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    This occurs with many apps, my example screenshot showed two Office 2016 apps, but it also happens with Adobe Photoshop... sometimes. This phenomenon also happens when I un-dock and re-dock my Surface Book (even when putting the unit to sleep mode before
    making the switch).

    Your suggestion with Display settings did not work, only a restart resolves the issue.

    I can understand the resolution of a display getting confused, but two apps from the same vendor?!?

    Thanks again.

    Windows.old is needed if you want to roll back (Go back) to the previous OS in the 30 days after the upgrade. If you don't plan to do that or made an image backup before the upgrade then delete it.

    I use CCleaner to do it but Disk Cleanup can also get rid of it.
