    How to Create Disk Cleanup All Items Checked Shortcut in Windows 10


    You can use Disk Cleanup on a regular basis to reduce the number of unnecessary files on your drives, which can free up drive space and help your PC run better. It can delete temporary files and system files, empty the Recycle Bin, and remove a variety of other items that you might no longer need.

    Disk Cleanup will already have items to delete checked and unchecked by default. You may want to have all items checked by default instead.

    This tutorial will show you how to create a Disk Cleanup shortcut that opens with all items checked by default in Windows 10.

    You will still be able to manually check and uncheck items in Disk Cleanup opened using this shortcut.

    Disk cleanup not working on Windows 10.

    Hello David,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We regret the inconvenience caused and will assist you in resolving the issue.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:

    • What is the exact error message you are getting?
    • Are you trying to delete the temporary files or system files using
      Disk cleanup
      ?


    Disk cleanup is used to delete the un-wanted and un-necessary temporary files located in your PC. However you can also use Disk cleanup to delete system files on the PC, which is not recommended as it might cause system
    performance issues on the PC.



    When performing Disk Cleanup, checking the appropriate options is necessary so you do not delete the restore points present in the system.



    Refer to the steps from the link below on Disk cleanup in Windows 10 and check if it helps:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/disk-cleanup-in-windows-10



    If the issue persists, is suggest you to close all the system windows which is kept open on the desktop and check if the Disk cleanup method works.



    Write to us with the answers to the above questions and the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    No its built into Windows, just open disk cleanup and select 'Clean up system Files' button on the bottom left- now you'll see previous installs of Windows listed under list of cleanable items. My old install is a whopping 25GB of my 256GB SSD.

  6. Disk Cleanup after The anniversary update

    Hi,

    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Disk Cleanup. I will certainly help you.

    As per your query, I would like to inform you that, it is safe to delete all the files with extension .tmp in the temporary files folder.

    I suggest you to try deleting the temporary file manually by the steps provided below and check if it helps:

    • Go to Windows key+ R and type
      temp
    • Select all of the files and folders within the Temp folder and delete.

    Please follow the below link to run disk cleanup:
