How to Check Storage on Windows 10?
- Checking Storage in File Explorer – The first way to check storage is through File Explorer. To do this, open the start menu and type in “File Explorer” or click the folder icon in the taskbar. Once File Explorer is open, select This PC from the left-hand side menu. Here you will see all of your drives including C:, D:, etc. Next, right-click on any drive and select Properties from the drop-down list. A window should appear that shows you how much free space is available along with how much total space exists on that drive.
- Checking Storage Using Task Manager – Another option for checking storage is through Task Manager. To open Task Manager, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete or right-click on the Start button and select Task Manager from the list of options. Once Task Manager appears, click over to the Performance tab and scroll down until you find “Storage” then click on it. From here you will be able to view information such as total disk space used/available and individual drive usage/available sizes in terms of both GBs and percentage used/available.
Checking storage on Windows 10 is a straight forward process that can help keep track of how much space is available for new programs or files. If needed, there are ways to free up additional space by uninstalling unused programs or deleting large files like videos or photos stored locally instead of in a cloud service such as Google Drive or Dropbox. Keeping an eye on your storage can ensure your computer runs smoothly without any hiccups due to lack of available disk space!
