How to Free up Google Photos Storage From Google Drive

Over a period of time your phone definitely takes tons of photos and if you’re using Google Photos to backup your photos then I’m sure the storage might have been used to some GBs. Google Drive allows you to store max 15 GB of data (Drive, Gmail & Google Photos). For high-quality photos, Google gives you unlimited storage. But if the images are stored in original size, the upload quota is limited.
So if your photos have been accumulated in your drive account in original size and the storage is about to bid you bye bye, well here’s a way-out to free up Google Photos storage from Google Drive.
You can download all of your Google Photos to your local machine using Google Takeout.
Visit Google Takeout page and select the app Google Photos and click the “next” button to grab all the photos from your Google Account.
After you’ve downloaded all your photos (make sure you have all of them), delete the online copy of photos from Google Photos app.
Now within Google Photos app, visit settings > backup and select the quality of photos to “high quality”. Selecting high quality gives you unlimited storage quota for backing up your photos in Google Photos.

How to Activate or Deactivate Cortana in Windows 10

How to Activate or Deactivate Cortana in Windows 10

Finally, Microsoft’s digital assistant “Cortana” has been embedded into the company’s desktop operating system – Windows 10. Using digital voice assistant, one can easily get small things (set alarm, remainder, search, etc) done and its a wise thing to activate it for increasing productivity level. Windows user can easily upgrade to the new version of Windows for free.
If you’ve upgraded to Windows 10 from previous versions, then “Cortana” might not be activated by default. So here’s an easy way to activate/deactivate her.


  • Click Start button
  • Select Cortana
  • Within the settings, click the notebook icon (third icon down – on the left)
  • Click the toggle button to turn on/off Cortana


Cortana pops up herself when you use this command, that means she’s active all the time which is battery consuming too! So some people might prefer deactivating this voice command.
Go to Start > Cortana, and select the notebook icon. Click the toggle menu to turn off the voice command.
