Oh! Well that's interesting, ...I'm all for simpler and easier to find/delete space hoggers. You know, I know that it doesn't matter why, ...ultimately I get caught up in the minutia, and can't seem to help wondering the "why fors" clearly very good reasons, especially for a novice like me, to go Mac. Lots less grief, ...I can't tell you the hours upon hours upons hours spent on PC issues. LOL, I have enough other ones, ...fixed my washer's motor control circuit board last Sunday, took me all day due to couldn't get my head in the opening, ...ultimately went to automotive supply and bought two telescoping tiny mirrors, one a quarter's size, the other a sliver dollar's size, ...but that's another topic. Happy to save myself the expense of a service call, cost $14.02. Thank you Hubby!!

so you are saying 'Delete some/any old restore points'. How would I recognize [currently studying Torts Law but when I need a break from it, I'll check out disk D\:]

hmmmm, I presume hard drive is measured in MB (and possibly Gigabytes?) and memory is measured in RAM. I have always been confused by this. I know you don't have time to answer all of my beginner questions, ...I'm just "pickin' up whatcher puttin' down". ;O)

The short answer is you need to identify where all your storage is being used, and delete what isnt necessary. This can start out simple, and get more complicated.
To begin, delete all the files on your desktop and in your "my documents" that you know you no longer need.
Then, "empty" your recycle bin.
Then, right-click on your C: icon and you should see a pie chart of free vs used space. There should be a button or option for "disk cleanup" - select the disk cleanup option, review the options, choose what makes sense (probably all options) and click GO or OK, or whatever. How you find your C: icon, and the exact wording, etc, will depend upon what version of Windows you are using.
If the above does not resolve the issue, it will begin to get complicated.

so I right click the c: and thene click open open as admin or run through windows defender THERES NO OTHER PTIONS
