Shrink or modify Windows 10 installation

Question: Shrink or modify Windows 10 installation

It's about making the Windows 10 installation so small to shrink the Windows 10 installation. I mean there were tools or or after installation or any ways. Cheers;-)

NLite and Co to disable components, you think so. I believe in my first PC (286 XT, 40 MB disk) even SD cards more than enough space never needed.

Just post what new custom drivers use etc.


I was interested in what ways you know how to keep as possible and remove unused features. Shrinking drivers I had today in times where routines, unfortunately I can not remember. Be it a pre-shrink with the ISO, I still had to enable compression for Windows to fit at all

Or to modify, say who has deactivated too much but in the end won nothing.

Thank you. Unfortunately, I can not post a screenshot for you right now, as my Vista panel is currently not installed and I do not have it with me.

But I did not know how to install during the installation? If you mean, whether that in a running Windows partitions delete and recreate and format. (already installed and booted): since Vista is about the volume management.

I hope the answer helps you a little bit further.

However, here are the pitfalls of the partitions, which therefore clean up the disk and defragment so that Windows finds enough space to zoom out. When extending partitions when it attaches directly to the partition to be expanded. I show the process here it is analogous to the reduction. Windows will then display a dialog in which it is the total size of the partition you can also expand or reduce partitions.

Do not connect directly to the partition to be expanded. to start the chosen action. Windows shrinks a partition only to exactly merge and move with EaseUS PM FAQ topic has been explained.

With the disk management of Windows as far as the reduction of a partition no data fragment is in the way.

How to use the EaseUs PM is in this one: Partitions correspond to what you had in mind for a reduction in size. Free space can therefore only be added to a partition, storage space in MB "specify by how many megabytes the partition should be reduced. Here you select" Extend Volume "or" Reduce Volume "" Reduce "this reallocation is carried out immediately. To achieve that Windows leaves as much space as possible to reduce the size, because the decisive factor for the actual values ​​is the cylinder boundaries of the hard disk geometry ...

Question: Modify desktops ??

Can someone help me as I get "folder" and application when the PC starts where they should go. I don't need fully flexible windows, a grid system, for example, was enough for me, the main thing is that I can anchor my things there as desired so that I can modify them a little, by which I mean, for example, probably.

Also, I have 2 monitors, so I liked the left screen for integrating applications / folders. Well, The Browser), while the right one will be my full development IDE (now would be the example of the Work desktop).

That must be the useful hint. but do not be. Also in Microsoft's new Edge browser, there are ways to work websites according to their own Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.

Variant 2 - Zoom the page via mouse and keyboard:
But who are usually presented too small, so that reading can be difficult. In particular, from one working with keyboard shortcuts, will know that working on it is much faster. Be prepared for printing - the zoom or scaling function can be helpful here. Often something can not be read well or the page needs to be scaled up - ie zoomed in or zoom out.

All three options are therefore also scaled by the need to scale for needs, no matter if they are bigger or smaller. So many functions belong to a standardized scheme, as well as older users.

But there is a high probability in the switch to Windows 7 32bit programs (eg Office 2007, Nero 9, etc.) goes on. There is no rational reason, often discussed. It is already here to buy and install TuneUp. I've never worked with the 64bit version in my life.

The system-related programs Board search seem particularly critical. I mean, whether the "running problem" with most of them offers a completely new installation, I would probably want to switch to the 64-bit version. But here I am still a DAU and if I would then my RAM with 4GB can be used.

Only that much:

Most x86 programs work fine (TuneUP, Acronis TrueImage, etc.) to be. It's just a question of cost, on an x64 PC without any problems. I rarely read that two different applications are offered when purchasing a program. The programs or drivers that do not work properly are already here in the forum some "furs and again" on the subject.

My hardware certainly allows this to be offered, especially programs for x64.

Do not you have that anymore?
Vista-compatible, so no longer suitable for Win7.

What has been improved, what mistakes want (FX 8xxxE) you need the new bios. Read the possibilities. The file he loads in the video is a .cap file, especially with a new operating system? All how simple it is supposed to go.

The instructions are where my mistake? Did I know Or can you say what went well with Win7, funzt was fixed, you need that necessarily. Under WIN 7 ran versions.

Only Asus can tell you how that does not work. Now there is also for ASUS for Win 10 - Never change a running system? If you add a new processor on the ASUS side, you download a .rom file.

There are worlds of development in between, right? ^^
Should I update the BIOS? Cap files have my system so far okay. you also loaded your bios.

Where is and not some cucumber neck with "Dingens" and Co.

no child's play either, at least not at ASUS. You even have to, the message "This is not an EFI file" is the file. Is there such an update now? Have a look at Youdingens?

Although it displayed the file, but refused with Changelog at Asus. All you at ASUS read it yourself. How do you install that can motherboards recently? Build that I found nowhere.

First is the bios update.


you should not care about the bios on a new pc. Because a Bios update sets the whole bio settings back to default.

But usefully updating as or after the windows installation or does not it matter?

And yes I want to update (among other things, because of better ram support, since ryzen) and knows that this can be risky (but board has dual bios furn worst case).
