[Windows 8] How to view how much hard space each installed Windows Store app uses
Posted By Tu Nguyen On January 31, 2013 @ 10:48 PM In Windows | No Comments
Pre Windows 8, you can manage installed programs from Control Panel (Add/Remove Programs). From here, you can also view how much hard drive space a specific program uses. In Windows 8, this still works… but it only works for non-Windows Store programs. That means you cannot see how large your Windows Store apps are from Add/Remove Programs. Thus, in this article, I will show you how to view the size of installed Windows Store apps on your Windows 8 tablet or PC
To know the size of installed Windows Store apps, you should do following:
Unlike Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, you only can see apps sizes from the method I showed above — you can’t uninstall apps directly from there. To uninstall a Windows Store app, you have to go to Start screen, right click/long tap on the app and select Uninstall in the bar below.
Hope you find this article useful.
