Who at Microsoft thought that this is a good idea?

I wish I did not update, last update I did was a year ago and I was happy with it, now Windows feels like chaos ... Half the things are Dark themed and the other half is not. Lets see what the future holds

Also that Windows.old thing takes up 20GB that even if installation fails, it never succeeds in rolling back ... At least I was never able to rollback ...

    You don't realise how many people never look into Downloads, so it just slowly grows and eats their disk.

    @gronostaj Ya I thought about that, but how many use Disk cleanup? Anyways, you have a point that could help those that don't notice Downloads and use Disk Cleanup

    Why would you keep anything important in that folder anyway

    It's intolerable that any windows installation, no matter how well maintained, ALWAYS uses more and more storage over time, because of update residuals. Instead of simple package versions, everything is a patch to the entire OS. It's the worst design in OS software updates(followed closely by MacOS), which is ironic considering it's the most popular GC OS.

    Well all I wanna know is why windows is eating 4gb idling when there is only the Nvidia drivers running on it... Back in the days it used far far less...

    I once had a user who hard over 100 copies of the same item in their Downloads folder. I don't recall the exact number, but I was terrified for that PC

    In Windows 10, there is an option which let you clear downloaded files, if it was not used in last 30 days. And old windows files after 7 days.

    @RiderExMachina Yeah, I've seen that too. Many people store so much crap in their download folder, that they can't find anything. So when they do need to find something, they just redownload it. That's how you end up with "New file (36782538).cunt"
