Can I delete $Windows.~WS folder after the Windows 10 upgrade?

Most of guys who updated Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10 would find there are a folder named $Windows.~BT in their C drive. This folder occupies several GB space. If you do a Disk Cleanup work, the folder should be cleaned up.

But there may be another folder named $Windows.~WS also staying in C drive, and Disk Cleanup does not delete it at all. As this folder is very large (several GB), can I delete $Windows.~WS folder after the upgrade?

I do not know the folder so much. It is a folder generated when I was updating my Windows operating system. And I completely deleted it manually. After the reboot, nothing wrong happened.

I think Microsoft should make it clear whether this folder is safe to be deleted or not.

How to fix Google Chrome resolution problem in Windows 10?

I recently update my Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro, it looks great. But there is one big issue for me. Chrome web browser does not work properly in Windows 10. Chrome cannot recognize the resolution of my screen. The width of my screen resolution is 1920 px, but Chrome think it is 2400, thus the font size and the web page displayed on Chrome are very small and not easy to read.

So how to fix the problem? Pretty easy.

  1. Locate the Google Chrome in the installation folder (e.g. C:\Program Files x86)\Google\Chrome\Application);
  2. Right click on the application, Properties, Compatibility tab;
  3. Select “Disable display scalling on high DPI settings”, then Restart Chrome.
