Microsoft will move “Disk Cleanup” tool to “Free Up Space Now”?
In the upcoming Windows 10 Spring Creators Update (codenamed Redstone 4), Microsoft may convert Disk Cleanup tool from classic menus to settings. GHacks discovered that the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update adds a new section to Settings> System> Storage, which allows users to perform a typical cleanup and maintenance process without having to launch a disk cleanup tool.
Although the option to clean up the disk already exists, it appears that Microsoft has included more settings so that users can decide what to delete. They can choose between Windows upgrade log files, Windows error report files created by the system, Windows Defender non-critical files, thumbnails, temporary files, and items in the recycle bin.
Clicking the Remove Files button has the same effect as starting the disk cleanup process and removes all selected items. The Settings application also provides a brief description of each option and how much space they occupy on the local drive. Microsoft is trying to make Windows 10 more intuitive and straightforward, and the Settings application has been improved in this area.
One of the company’s top priorities is to migrate all configuration options from the traditional control panel to the setup application, and some projects have not yet completed switching. However, the control panel will be disabled and all configuration options will be available in the Settings application.
Windows 10 Spring Creators Update is expected to be launched this month and will be gradually introduced to users.
