How To Clean Up Disk Space On Windows


This quick step guide will show you how to clean up your machine disk space.

  • Empty the Recycle Bin by Right-clicking on the Recycle Bin icon and selecting “Empty Recycle Bin”.

  • Delete Unnecessary Files: Go through your documents, downloads, and other folders to delete unnecessary files.
  • Uninstall Unused Applications: Open the Control Panel, click on “Uninstall a program”, and uninstall any applications you no longer use.

  • Use Disk Cleanup: Windows has a built-in tool called Disk Cleanup. You can find it by searching for “Disk Cleanup” in the Start menu. It can remove temporary files, system files, and more.

  • Clear Browser Cache: In your web browser’s settings, find the option to clear the cache and cookies.

  • Delete Duplicate Files: if you have files in multiple locations try and keep them in the cloud and not on your device to reduce space being taken up and stop duplicate work.
  • Check for Large Files: Files such as photos or files containing a lot of images or links can be bloated. Please check to see if there are lower-quality versions to use that can reduce space by 16x!

Remember to always double-check before deleting files, as some may be necessary for certain applications to run correctly.
