According to foreign media reports, on Windows 10, if your computer reaches the storage limit, you can use built-in functions or tools to reclaim several gigabytes of storage space. In addition, users can also automate this process by entering storage settings and in storage sense, which is designed to automatically delete unused temporary files.
Storage settings and storage sense help users delete files from temporary folders, windows update cache, recycle bin, and download folders. When storage sense is turned on, users can also use onedrive to move their local files from the computer 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, images, and installed apps that users have never visited.
It also allows users to sort installed apps or files based on the last access date to decide which should be removed.
Archive application in Windows 10
Microsoft is also developing the "archive apps" feature for windows 10, which will allow the operating system to archive applications that users have installed but don't use frequently.
This feature is obviously related to the "cleanup advice" mentioned earlier, and a new group policy reveals more details about the archive application function.
"This policy setting controls whether the system can archive infrequently used applications," Microsoft said
When you enable this setting, windows "periodically checks and archives apps that you don't use frequently.". When this setting is disabled, windows will not archive any apps.
By default, windows 10 follows the default behavior of periodically checking and archiving infrequently used apps. With the new feature, Microsoft says it can reduce the space taken up by dormant applications on computers.
Users can set up
When an app is archived and tries to start it from the start menu, windows 10 will go online and check the latest packages in the Microsoft Store, and then download the app again. Windows will also restore users' files and settings from previous installed apps.
If an application is no longer available for download and has been automatically archived, users will not be able to access it again.
