If you’re looking for a way to free up extra space on your Nintendo Switch, there are a few options. The first is to download a microSD card and use it to expand the storage capacity. But you can also free up space on your device by deleting files. This will also free up space in your Switch’s System memory, which is where your game save data is stored. Unfortunately, the games that you’ve bought digitally will not be able to be copied to the microSD card. You must first delete your Nintendo apps.

Another option is to delete individual games from your Switch. This can be done from the Nintendo System Settings menu. First, you must locate the game you want to delete. If you don’t want to delete it from the system, you can choose to re-install it from the home screen.

Alternatively, you can choose to delete all the save data for a specific game. Regardless of the option that you choose, you must be aware that deleting save data will result in the deletion of all data for that game across all saved accounts. But don’t worry, there are ways to save your progress, and you can do this from the console’s System Settings.

Once you’ve finished deleting the games that you no longer want to play, you can now go back to the Nintendo Switch menu to free up internal storage. Once you have selected the game you wish to remove, you’ll be prompted to “Delete Software”. Choosing this option will delete the game software from your system. However, you will need to download it again if you want to play it again.

You can also archive multiple games at a time. To do this, you must press the “plus” or “minus” button on the controller to open the menu. Once you’ve selected the option, press the A button to confirm your action. You should notice a message asking you to confirm your action.

There are two ways to remove games from your Nintendo Switch: by deleting them from the Nintendo eShop or by manually deleting their saved data. To do this, go to the system settings menu and select Data Management. From there, scroll down to Manage Software. On the next screen, you will see a list of the games you have installed on your Nintendo Switch. The list is sorted by file size, with the largest game file at the top. From here, you can delete or archive games from your Switch.

As with any device, it’s important to keep track of your storage space. Saving files add up quickly and should be kept under control, especially if you’re limited in space.
