As technology advances, our dependency on computers and digital devices also increases. It’s now common for us to download and save files on our devices to access them later. But, did you know that every time we access a file on our device, a temporary file is created? Over time, temporary files pile up and can significantly reduce system performance. So, how can you delete temporary files and improve your device’s performance? Here’s your guide:

1. Use the Disk Cleanup Tool: The Disk Cleanup tool is an inbuilt feature in Windows Operating System that helps remove unwanted files, including temporary files. To use this tool, search for ‘Disk Cleanup’ in the Start menu, and select the drive you want to clean. The tool will scan and provide a list of files that can be deleted. Simply select ‘Temporary files’ and click on ‘OK’ to delete them.

2. Use CCleaner: CCleaner is another tool that can help remove temporary files from your device. It’s available for free and has both a paid and a free version. Simply download and install CCleaner, and select ‘Temporary files’ under the ‘Cleaner’ tab. Click on ‘Run Cleaner,’ and the tool will remove all your temporary files.

3. Use Storage Sense: Storage Sense is a tool available in Windows that helps you manage storage on your device. It automatically removes temporary files when your storage is running low. To turn on Storage Sense, go to ‘Settings’ > ‘System,’ > ‘Storage’ > ‘Storage Sense,’ and turn it ‘ON.’

4. Manually delete temporary files: You can also manually delete temporary files by using Run command. Press ‘Windows key + R,’ type ‘%temp%’ in the Run dialogue box, and press enter. This will open the ‘Temp’ folder, and you can select and delete files you don’t need.

In conclusion, temporary files can significantly reduce system performance, but deleting them regularly can improve your device’s performance. Use the Disk Cleanup tool, CCleaner, or Storage Sense to remove temporary files automatically, or manually delete them using the Run command. By doing so, you can free up space on your device, reduce clutter, and keep it running smoothly.
