What’s going on guys, today I’m Gonna
show you how to clean Your C Drive or Local Disk C in windows 10. It’s a simple procedure
but very effective and we gonna show it as fast as possible. We are not using any third
party programs to perform this cleaning process, so you don’t have to download another creepy
tool to do this. For your information cleaning the unwanted file from your C drive will make
your windows run much faster. So let’s start. Step number 1, Cleaning.
Go to your start button and right click on it. Now you will see this hidden menu, choose
run from here, Now enter temp and click on ok, which open
this folder, in case if it’s asking for any permission please click on continue. Now you
will all these files and folders, which are all not needed, and it’s created only for
a temporary purpose. So you can select all of them now click on shift + delete on your
keyboard. Some file may undeletable so ignore them and delete the rest.
Now we have to open the run box again and this time type in %temp% click on ok and another
folder will appear. As same as we deal with the last temp folder, continue deleting all
the file. Once you do that, you have to open the run
box for the final time, and this time type in prefetch, now you will see another folder
opens, and maybe it asks you for the permission to access the files, in that case, click on
continue, and the files and folder will be revealed to you. Now do the same thing you
did with the last two folders. Select all and hit shift + Delete and that’s it. Step Number 2, Recycle bin.
You may know this already but I have to tell you this because a majority of people are
unaware of this, Whenever you delete a file by right click
delete option, or hitting the delete key on your keyboard, it will not remove the files
from your computer, it will keep all the deleted files on your recycle bin until a certain
limit and the default Windows 10 recycle bin limit is somewhere around 50 GBs.
Yes, you can hit the shift + Delete key to delete a file from your computer completely
but what if you forget to do so. For your information The recycle bin is using your
c Drive space, so technically if you delete something without hitting the shift + delete,
it will eventually end up somewhere in your c drive or system drive, which will cause
your system go slow. So if you didn’t clean up your recycle bin frequently it will acquire
a good amount of space out of your C drive. So let’s delete all of the files from the
recycle bin as well. And hope you do this once in a while. At this point, you will see
improvements on your c drive space. But wait it’s not done yet. We can do a few more
things, maybe better than what you saw in the previous steps. Step Number 3, Uninstall
In this step, we gonna show you how to uninstall all the unwanted or rarely using software
or programs from your computer, which is basically installed into your c drive by default. So
by removing those unwanted programs, you can get a lot more space on your c drive. For
that you need to go the start menu and search uninstall, now on the search result you will
find the add or remove programs, so click on it. Now it will open the windows settings
apps and feature window. So come down here and uninstall each and every rarely using
or unwanted programs. It’s just a matter of clicking the uninstall button and follow
the on-screen instructions So I’m leaving the rest to you. Step number 4, Optimize.
First, you gonna need to go to your This pc or file explorer, now go to the c drive, right
click and choose properties. From here go to the tools tab and click on the Optimize
option under the Optimize and defragment drive section. Now you will see this window, so
make sure you have selected your c drive from here. Once you do that come down here and
click on the optimize button once again, and there we go, that’s pretty much we can
do here. Step Number 5, Disk clean up.
This is the last and final step that I know to clean your c drive even more or to ensure
everything else unwanted are cleaned from your c drive. To do this you need to go to
your start menu and search Disk clean up, now you will see it on the result so click
on it. it will performs a quick scan over your drive and shows you this window. Once you
are here, check each and every option and click on clean up system files. And it performs
a deep scan, once it finished it will open this new window, as same as we deal with
the previous window, just select each and every option from here as well, now click
ok and delete files. The cleanup process may take a while, so let it Finish!
and There we go that’s all we can do to clean up your c drive. Hope you are all experiencing
a performance boost, free up space and a more enhanced system responsiveness. So that’s
