Microsoft Surface Tip: July 24

Tip of the Week: Free up space on Surface RT or Pro

In this week’s tip, I want to show you the easy way to find out which Metro apps are taking the most memory on your Surface RT or Surface Pro. This could be useful if you find yourself running out of space on your Surface and need to free some up fast.

  • In Metro, swipe in from the right side of the screen to show the Charms Menu
  • Tap Settings
  • Tap Change PC Settings (at the bottom)
  • Select General
  • Scroll down to find Available Storage
  • Tap the View app sizes button

You will get a little window that shows how much space your apps are using on your Surface. You can then delete the apps that give you the biggest bang for the buck.
