    The term now is "optimize drive". Open settings, then "system". Then go to storage. On that menu towards the bottom is "optimize drive".

    Keeping the temp files down helps with keeping free space. There is also a setting for storage that turns on "storage sense".

    defrag is not for web browsers. it's for hard drives.

    if you defragment the drive Chrome is installed on, Chrome will be "defragmented".

    also, please note, if you have an SSD drive instead of a hard drive, you should NOT defragment it. it isn't necessary, and can actually harm it.

    As has already been said, defrag is a Windows thing ie a computer thing concerning the hard drive, and not an internet thing.

    You no longer need to Defrag.   Windows 10 takes care of that Automatically.

    And you NEVER Defrag a Solid State Hard Drive.

    You don't. That's been an automated process since Windows 7.

    How to defragment on Windows 10? Simple:

    Press "Windows" button and the "R" button at the same time. Now, write "dfrgui" inside it, and voila! A window appears showing you your Hard Disks and Solid State Drives and you have to option to either analyze or defragment/Trim the drive of your choice. You can also set a schedule if you want. 

    Another way of accessing it is simply by searching in the search bar "Type here to search", and write "Disk Defragment". You will see "Defragment and Optimize drives" in the result. Click it, and the same window as before appears. 

    Yet another way of accessing it is to go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dfrgui.exe and manually double-clicking it. 

    Yet another way (again) to access it is by writing "cmd" in the search bar, and right-click the result for the command prompt and then "Run as Administrator". Inside it, write "dfrgui" and press "Enter". You'll see the defragmentation window. 

    Yet another way (yet again) to access Disk Defragmenter is to go to Control Panel, and then select "Administrative Tools", and then a window appears with numerous functions. One of them states "Defragment and Optimize Drives". Double-Click it and you'll see your Disk Defragmenter. 

    Again, yet again, another way (yet again) to defragment your computer is to install a 3rd party software and run its own personalized defragmentation procedure (but there really is no need for that).

    Starting with Windows 7, Windows will automatically defragment your drive when it feels necessary. However if you really want to do it manually, click on the start button, search for "Defrag" (w/o quotes). Choose the drive you want to optimize and let it work.

    There is no operating system called google chrome... there is only an operating system called Linux which Google built a Desktop Environment for.

    Linux does not have any support for defrag.
