Once again this is a response to a "Hey, how do
IÖ" and, once again, there is the loathed disclaimer:
How does one clean up all the junk that accumulates on
one's hard drive over time?
Not hard, really. Open
(or double click) "My Computer".
RIGHT click on the icon for your hard drive (usually
"C"). On the pop up
menu that appears, select (left click) "Properties". On the pop up dialog box that appears next, select
"Clean Up". Windows
will take a few seconds (or longer if you havenít done this in a while)
and then tell you how much space you can save by eliminating temporary
Internet files, downloaded files, files in the recycle bin, and more.
You can then select the ones you want to delete and click
"OK" and Windows will delete the files as you directed.
Interestingly, running Clean Up from time to time also
seems to help performance. I
have theories as to why but am not really sure.
When things begin to get "sticky" I always try Clean Up
