    Build 9860 Enteprise to Pro Version disk cleanup


    On my 9860 Enterprise version I can find the disk clean up tool in the start menu. On the 32 and 64 bit pro versions it can be easily missed as it is nowhere to be found in a menu. When you type "Disk Cleanup" in the start menu search the option you need is "Free Up Disk Space By Deleting Unnecessary Files". This is nuts. Takes 10 times as long and you could easily dismiss the option

    Here is the Enterprise version with Admin Tools.

    Oh and the start menu changes colours in a crazy way. The black is not my idea. It is different everytime I log in. I have it set to change automatically with the wallpaper theme of wonderful Yosemite Park and there is no black scenes. Now it is a nice blue grey :

    I think I have an explanation for the crazy start menu color. On log in with a MS account the screen is dark blue as it asks for my password and then changes to black as it has no memory of the previous desktop picture on boot up. If you lock the machine you get the currect color hue (usually garish color yuck). I don't know but the more I play with the current UI the more I think it is being dumbed down and depricated for desktop users. The changes from Control panel to PC settings now gives me a screen 22" in size with 75% of blank screen. I do not want this way of doing things.

    Also the start Menu's color interpretation produces (insert deity here) colors from a limited palate. Awful.

    The color of the taskbar looks quite nice but as you can see the start menu makes it garish.......I know it is just me. I should get new glasses. Oh wait I just did.

    Yeah have not quite got the picture posting completely aced on 10 yet. Should be OK now

    Edit, if you add ADMIN tools from right clicking on the taskbar, select properties, start menu, customize and add and remove by selecting the check boxes.

    I think that tool should be in Accessories, System Tools like it is in 7.

    You are going to want to recover the space taken up by Windows.old and also Windows BT (Hidden). Together on my systems that is 6GB of space.

    I am trying to use 10 in the default way to see what a "normal user" without Geek experience would see. It is a heck of a lot easier to find the program on the Enterpise version with the admin tools on the start menu. I would have the admin tools right there and would probably add a take ownership right click shortcut and just delete away. Or go searching in the Windows folder for the tool. From the standard settings searching for the tool is not so easy if you don't know. I think if they are going to be offering system upgrades in this manner the disk cleanup needs to be more prominent or even run automatically as part of the process.

    Agreed. It should be under Maintenance or system tools.
