Fixing “Windows needs more space” in Windows 10

Problem:

This is a situation where you are unable to install latest Windows updates due to shortage of space on your device. If you go for the installation you will get “Windows needs more space” message.

How to Fix:

When you will get “Windows needs more space” message then you will see two options:

  • Free up space on the C drive
  • Select or connect an external storage device

#To free up C drive see Free up drive space in Windows 10.

#Connecting the external drive:

If cleaning of C drive is not enough for a smooth installation then try the second option. Connect your external storage device and wait until you see it appear in the drop-down list under Part B. You may need to refresh to see it. A green check mark will appear next to the storage drive icon.

Fixing Blurred display

Problem:

My display doesn’t look right at all. Resolution seems to be set to 1920×1080… , but text, icons and windows seem bigger than they were before. Also the display is lacking sharpness around text.

Resolution:

Microsoft has released a tech article about this.

Look for an updated graphic driver in graphic card manufacturer’s website. Other things could be tried:

  • Disable DPI virtualization for the application. To do this, right-click the application’s shortcut and then click Properties. On the Compatibility tab, select Disable Display Scaling On High DPI Settings, and then click OK. This causes the text in the application to appear clearer. However, if the application does not correctly handle high DPI settings, this procedure may have adverse side effects such as truncated text and incorrectly sized graphical elements.
  • Lower the overall Windows DPI setting. To do this, open the Display item in Control Panel (or search for “dpiscaling” from the Start screen), and then adjust the slider under Change the size of all items. You may have to click to select the check box for Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays and then change the scale to 100 percent.

Note that on very high-DPI displays, this may make screen elements very small, and some text may become difficult to read.
