I can't find where the defrag App. is on Win8.
exactly the same way as win7
Right click on your hard drive -properties - tools - optimise and de fragment
Searching also helps..
and type Defrag
Not sure if serious.
Type it where? I do not understand you.
Read what? I insulted someone? How did I do that? I just asked a simple question I think I am being insulted.
What is wrong with you he just needed some help a simple answer to a simple question.
That doesn't mean he deserves to be run into the ground SHAME on YOU !!!!!
Unless I am mistaken I thanked you Sir PUFFINGMAD. What ever these other nit wits have jumped into it for, is far from my understanding. Is this forum moderated? If not it sure needs to be.
lets end this with simple answer:
search in windows 8 metro screen mode is very easy. no need to find where to type for search. whole metro screen is "search" place/windows/box. so just type the key words and it will display results in three categories viz, Apps, Settings, Files if concerned.
and if you are in desktop mode then just hit windows logo key/button and type the key words defrag and it will show the results. generally entering initial few letters show the probable results but some applications needs to be typed in full name. see the result for the subject word "defrag";
Your defrag word shows 1 result under "Apps" and 2 results under "Settings".
have a nice day.
Don't worry I sure will not be asking for any more help in this forum.
Ask as many questions as you want and just ignore the idiots and the rest will still help
I do really thank you for the help given yesterday.
Seriously, guys... isn't it possible to write an answer without using foul language? Re-read your posting after writing it. If it contains foul language, maybe consider writing it again? Or sleep a night over it and post then. Unbelievable.
To defrag a drive in Windows 8: Open Windows Explorer. Left click the drive in the left part of the window. On the top of the page will appear "Drive Tools". Go up and click on the box "Drive Tools". The defragmenter tool will appear as an option. Click on the icon, and the window will open to defragment your drive.
After playing around with it, I think it does a better job in Windows 8 than it did in previous windows versions.
There are always third party options such as Defragger and Diskeeper to defrag your system.
