Defragment Disk Drives in Windows 8
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Crystal, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to defragment disk drives on a Windows 8 computer.
The first thing that we need to do is right-click in the lower left corner of the screen and click "Control Panel".
When the menu opens, we need to click "System and Security".
Scroll down and click "Administrative Tools".
When it opens, we need to double click "Defragment and Optimize Drives".
We must make sure that we're logged in as an administrator to do this. When it's done loading, it will tell us how much fragmentation is on the disk. In this case, it's 18%.
To fix this, select the drive and click "Optimize".
Wait for it to finish. Depending on the speed of our computer, the size of the drive, and the fragmentation level, it may take several minutes or hours.
Once it's done, the system will tell us that it's no longer fragmented.
Now we can close all of the Windows.
This concludes the tutorial on how to defragment disk drives on a Windows 8 computer.
