Tips to improve storage capacity in windows

 

Nowadays hard disk and solid state drives are affordable and can easily improve your storage requirements, but it doesn’t mean they come up with unlimited capacity as internet broadband comes. With games and software’s now taking up hundreds of gigabytes, and Windows updates needing significantly more space than they used to, you may find your drive filling up more often.

Fortunately, we have a few tricks which will help you to free up a lot of space on your PC running on windows and make your work efficient by allowing you to find the programs or files that you need easily. 


1. Simple thing – clean up your recycle bin

You may not realize it, but whenever you delete a file, it doesn’t actually disappear into thin air. On Windows, it gets stored in your Recycle Bin where it sits for a long time taking up space.


2. Uninstall unnecessary apps or programs

Most of the time we install some apps for some temporary work requirements and we never use them. So you can uninstall those apps on Windows to free up some space. To uninstall unnecessary apps or programs just head to the Control Panel then under Programs, select Uninstall a Program.


3. Delete Temporary Files

Going to Settings > System > Storage, will offer you a chance to see how much space is being taken up by Temporary files or Downloads. Find the "Temporary files" option and click (select) on it and then click on the "Remove files" button to remove the temporary files.


4. Disk Cleanup

Another trick to free up space in Windows is to use Windows built-in Disk Cleanup utility. Disk Cleanup removes temporary files, clears the cache, empties your Recycle Bin, and removes a variety of other files and items you no longer need.


5. Storage Sense

Windows 10 makes it easy to delete junk files from your system drive in order to free up disk space. While emptying your Recycle Bin is a great manual task, when you enable the Storage Sense tool, it will monitor and free up space on your PC automatically.


Even after performing all the above tips still you are getting a low storage space message, you might need to consider some other options like transferring files to an external drive or include an additional storage drive.

Samsung to Launch Its New Virtual Assistant: Sam

  While virtual assistants have been around for a while, Samsung is expected to introduce a new 3D virtual assistant to the next generation. The company may officially debut this character as 'Sam.' The brand's virtual assistant is currently a 2D character, but when a new dimension is launched, it may return with a new dimension. Like many other firms, the South Korean digital company has officially launched a 2D virtual assistant. The company, however, has opted to produce a three-dimensional variant to take the trend to the next level. The answer is simple: 3D characters are more appealing to the eye. As a result, once Sam arrives, people are likely to forget about Bixby. Although the character is currently two-dimensional, it has experienced a significant transformation since returning to social media. Samsung's new virtual assistant, on the other hand, will feature additional textures, positions, and expressions. The company's goal is to make its virtual assis
