How to know how much the applications of our team occupy


As Microsoft has launched new versions of Windows, each one of them has taken up more space, which forces the user to have a minimum of 500 GB of hard disk to be able to enjoy Windows 10 and be able to install the applications that we use regularly. without being forced to delete applications periodically.

Knowing how the space on our hard drive is distributed allows us to know if something is not working well, if we have space occupied on our hard drive unnecessarily, space that we can eliminate to get some precious GB that we can use on other things.

Through the Applications section available in the configuration options, we can know how much space each of the applications we have installed occupies On our computer, however, it is not the best method to classify the total space occupied by all applications, temporary files, files that we have on the desktop of our computer ...

Windows allows us to access that information through the configuration options, but not by the same way by which we can access the information of the space occupied by each of the applications that we have installed. To check globally, what is the space that all applications, temporary files and others occupy, we must carry out the following steps:

Hard disk space

  • First, we access the configuration options through the keyboard shortcut Windows key + i, or through the gear wheel that we find on the left side of the start menu.
  • Next, click on System> Storage.
  • In this section, the space occupied in the system by:
    • Applications and features.
    • Temporary files.
    • Desktop
    • Others
  • If we want to free space from any of these sections, we must click on it to delete manually or through a wizard (depends on the type of content), the content we want
