Now that Windows 8 is out for some people
, and you've probably installed a bunch of apps from the Windows Store already, why not take a look at how much space those apps actually take up?
We've selected a thread from our forums
that shows you how you can achieve this and keep track of how much space those apps are taking up.
More and more new features that are present in the Windows 8 RTM but not in the release preview are being revealed.
Today, I want to talk about a new neat little handy feature that is included in the RTM version of Windows 8. It's a new addition to the Metro Modern-UI style control panel in Windows 8 that will let you see how much space is left on your hard drive AND how much space each Modern-UI style app is taking up your hard drive. I am sure many of you will find this feature a very welcoming one, as in the past, it was quite hard to see how much disk space these apps were using without actually examining the app directories manually.
To activate it, go to the General section of the Metro Style control panel. Or you can directly search for it from the Start screen by typing relevant words like, "app size", "size", "space", "disk space", etc.
You will need the RTM version of Windows 8 (or later) to be able to do this!
