Check and increase available memory on your phone

Want to check how much memory you have available? Use the storage sense app.

On the start screen, swipe left, and tap storage sense.

  1. Tap phone.

    Tip: Want to see what more you have on your phone? Tap the file type, for example, photos. To quickly access the apps or files, tap manage.

If the phone memory is getting full, first check for and remove things you no longer need:

  • Text, multimedia, and mail messages

  • Contact entries and details

  • Apps

  • Music, photos, or videos

Remove temporary files to free up space

  1. Tap phone > temporary files > delete. To delete temporary files and other data from just your browser, tap Internet Explorer settings > delete history.
