  1. Windows 10 Unnecessary Files Deletion


    Hello guys, I am having a full installation of windows 10 that is 18Gb in size. I need to delete some unnecessary files of windows 10 so there will be more space for other purposes. Is there any lists of those unnecessary files to remove them?

    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

    Turn off all unnecessary startup applications and processes:

    Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open Task Manager

    If so, select and click 'Disable'

    Close Task Manager

    Click your Start Button, type msconfig and hit Enter

    When the System Configuration dialog opens, click on the Services Tab

    Check the box marked 'Hide Microsoft Services'

    In the remaining list, see any non-essential items are listed there, uncheck any you find

    Click Apply and OK

    Turn off all unnecessary Background Apps

    Open the Settings App

    Go to Privacy - Background Apps
