Manually delete app/s that you don't use or use so often and make more space on the phone.
> go to settings > then apps and scroll across for "downloaded apps"
Scroll through list of app and delete what u don't want(Some apps sometimes download without you knowing so check for those )
Then press on apps and find uninstall.
Some might say it will cause other apps not to function properly but if not using just get rid of it and remember its " downloaded apps " not what came with the phone.
You can also Download a cleaner from apps store e.g clean master and clean up dump files, caches etc. for more memory hence more speed.
Hope this helps.

How do I delete games icons from yahoo opening page on desktop


Right click on them and you will see delete flash up. Hit delete but to take the games right out of your computer you have to go into computer programs and uninstal them. Be very careful you don't uninstal something you want to keep.

Monitor does not light up at all.


Did she spill something on it? Have you tried to make sure it's not an issue with your bright and dark buttons or keys on the keyboard?

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

How to reset laptop back to factory setting


If you are speaking of erasing all files and resetting windows back to when you purchased it, then I suggest taking it to a computer technician to have it formatted and reinstalled.
If your talking about BIOS settings, then when the computer boots, just press the delete key until the bios comes up, then go to the option that says something like load defaults or load fail-safe options or something similar.
Without knowing what is is you want to reset, that is the best advice i can give :D
hope it helps you though...

Desktop icons and taskbars not appearing in vista


Can you hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete? If you can, choose the Applications tab, then choose File > New Task (Run). Type "explorer" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER. Something is loading up on your machine and is using up all of your system resources, possible virus or spyware.

How do I delete pictures that I have downloaded from my camera to my computer. I am a first time user.


Without knowing what kind of camera you have, this will be sort of a generic explanation, and I'm going to assume your computer runs on Windows.

You can delete pictures from the camera one at a time using the camera's controls - the exact procedure varies from one camera to the next, and you'll need to consult the manual. But it's easier and faster to delete them while the camera (or its memory card) is connected to the computer.

If you connect the camera to the computer with a USB cable, the camera will appear like a portable drive. Same goes if you take the camera's memory card out and plug it into a reader on the computer. Just open Windows Explorer or My Computer and look for the new drive. It will probably be drive E or higher. Then you can delete files the same way you delete any other files from a hard drive.
