On Windows 10, if your PC reaches storage limits, you can use built-in features or tools to recycle several pounds of storage space,media reported. In addition, users can automate this process by entering storage settings and in Storage Sense, a feature designed to automatically delete unused temporary files.
Storage settings and Storage Sense can help users delete files from temporary folders, Windows Update caches, recycle bins, and download folders. When You turn on Stage Sense, users can also use OneDrive to move their on-premises files from their computers to the cloud.
To make life easier for users, Microsoft says it is developing a new feature for Windows 10 called Cleanup Recommendations, which will create a complete list of personal data files, documents, pictures, and installed apps that users have never accessed.
It also lets users sort installed apps or files based on the last access date to decide which ones should be deleted.
Archive apps in Windows 10.
Microsoft is also developing archive apps for Windows 10, which will allow operating systems to archive apps that users already have installed but don’t use frequently.
This feature is clearly related to the “cleanup recommendations” mentioned earlier, and a new Group policy reveals more details about the archiving app’s functionality.
“This policy setting controls whether the system can archive apps that are not used very often,” Microsoft said. “
When this setting is enabled, Windows “periodically checks and archives apps that are not used very often.” When this setting is disabled, Windows will not archive any apps.
By default, Windows 10 follows the default behavior of periodically checking and archiving apps that you don’t use very often. Microsoft says the new feature will reduce the amount of space used by sleeping apps on its computers.
Users can find the app they want to delete/archive by setting up the system and cleaning up the recommendations.
When an app is archived and you try to launch the app from the Start menu, Windows 10 companies go online and view the latest packages in the Microsoft Store, and then download the app again. Windows will also recover users’ files and settings from previously installed apps.
If an app is no longer available for download and has been automatically archived, users will not be able to access it again.
