Many PC users like it when their operating system has the ability to perform a number of actions on their own, which turn it into an automated organism that serves itself. It's just not rare that not all users know how to use certain system options to achieve certain goals. It is for this reason that we decided to touch on a topic in which we will try to tell as much as possible the details of what the "Memory Control" tool in Windows 10 is.
At once I would like to note that this tool does not require you to additionally install third-party software in the OS and to understand its settings will be able to anyone who wants to do it.
Memory Monitoring in Windows 10
In fact, the "Memory Control" tool in the "Top Ten" makes it possible for any user to configure the system so that the downloaded files that are stored in the Downloads folder and not used at all as for a while are automatically deleted. This approach to memory cleaning does not allow to perform independent cleaning with some frequency, but provides such an opportunity to the system itself, which is very practical and convenient, with a lack of free time.
How to configure "Memory Control" in Windows 10?
In fact, everything here is quite simple, since you need to go to: the Options panel → go to System → open Device Memory and activate the function called Memory Control. The last action is performed by moving the switch to the "On" position.
It is important to understand that an instrument of this type can be tailored to its specific needs and it will perform the removal of various types of temporary files according to a specific schedule:
- When Windows decides (assuming that free disk space is coming to an end).
In order to choose one of the most suitable options for temporary cleaning the system, we suggest using the link "Change the method of automatic space clearing" → from the drop-down list you must select "Start memory monitoring".
Now, it only remains to understand how the "Downloads" folder will be cleaned. You should click on "Delete files in the Downloads folder" if they are there more "and then choose one of 4 options:
- 1 day.
- 14 days.
- 30 days.
- 60 days from download.
If you set up the Memory Monitor tool in Windows 10 as described above, you can forget once or for all that because of the crowded "Downloads" folder, the free disk space has run out, or, there was a problem with the fact that you can not figure out which files to delete and which ones to keep.
