    Hi Kevin! I have an 8GB RAM, but I would really like to expand it since I am always full there (92-96%). Unfortunately, my laptop has a non-expandable RAM, so I am considering Readyboost.
    Which Pendrive/SSD do you think works best? What would you suggest to me for that? I would really appreciate your videos, and I watch all of them.
    I can only use an USB-C portal now
    Can I use an SD card for that?

    I've learned a lot by watching this video! At about 10 minutes into the video, you were talking about the Apps and Features page, and about how one can select "sort by size" feature; that is an absolutely great way of seeing quickly the applications that have the greatest impact. I was completely unaware that one could do so. Anyway, after I sorted the apps, down toward the bottom of the list, I noticed a bunch of features called "Microsoft Visual C++ along with different years. In my case, two say 2013 Redistributable, one says 2012 Redistrubutable, another says 2017 Redistributable and there are several more going back to 2008 and 2010. My question is: Are these apps still important or relevant? While they don't take up very much space, nevertheless to me, they seem like they may just be extra bloat that I don't need anymore. What do you think? I love your channel, and am grateful that I found it.
