3. Stor­age sense

Windows Advisor - - Feature -

Over time, your PC can qui­etly fill with need­less junk with­out your even re­al­iz­ing it, as the Re­cy­cle Bin and tem­po­rary files suck up your stor­age. The Win­dows 10 Cre­ators Up­date adds a new fea­ture to com­bat the creep. Head to Sys­tem > Stor­age and en­able the Stor­age Sense op­tion to have Win­dows start au­to­mat­i­cally clear­ing out un­needed tem­po­rary files, and delet­ing any files in your Re­cy­cle Bin over 30 days old.

You can tweak those op­tions us­ing the Change how we free up space link un­der­neath the op­tion, but it doesn’t do much in its de­but state. Hope­fully Mi­crosoft will beef up this fea­ture over time, mak­ing the set­tings even more use­ful in the fu­ture.
