Windows 10 Will Get an Improved System Cleaning Tool

The days when most Windows users installed system cleaning apps are long gone, pretty much because Microsoft itself has equipped the operating system with the necessary tools to do the whole thing so much easier.

Right now, Windows 10 comes with a Storage Settings page that allows anyone to scan the local drives for temporary files, apps, and other data that eats up space, basically making it possible to clean up the hard disk using a native solution.

At this point, the Storage Sense tool is located at the following path in Windows 10:

Storage Sense can be configured to run:

I love everything to do with Microsoft Windows, and the new Windows 10 is great so far. I love to spend my time researching on how viruses and bacteria work in my personal lab. I also enjoy history and comics.
