Got A Minute? Clean Up Your PC

Monday, June 12th, 2017 by | Filed Under: File & Disk Management, Quick Tips

Got a minute or two? How about we do a quick trick that can save a ton of space on your PC. Type “disk cleanup” into the search box of your Windows¬† PC’s start menu.¬† Then click on the result.


Disk Cleanup will immediately calculate how much space it can free up on your device. (Okay, it might take TWO minutes) Take a quick look at the results of the scratch to make sure nothing crucial has been selected and then hit OK.


You could end up saving gigs of disk space.

    Cynthia, this is a bit off topic. But I was completely unnerved when I booted up this morning. All my icons on my screen were lined up on the left side of the screen. There had been no updates indicated. I have no explanation for why/how they got lined up against left side. My usual is for them t/b spread across the screen with like with like – I/e Photography with Photography; Editing with Editing; Topaz with Topaz; etc. What could have caused this. I was shocked and unnerved to the point that I thought 1) this was not my PC & 2) someone somehow has taken control of my PC. First thing I did was run a Malwarebytes Anti-malware scan which produced no threats. Can you or one of your other computer geeks help? help? Trish
