  1. Deleting temporary files and cookies


    Need a fast way to delete temp files and cookies in Windows 10. I have tried a few things, but still have files not deleted. Used to be able to click settings, view files, select all, and delete. I can click settings and view, but that is it.

    :)

    As I said above, it WILL delete all temporary files, history, cookies and saved passwords from Internet Explorer. See screen shot of the Internet Explorer Settings below. It describes what happens if you click on Delete History

    Deleting temporary files and cookies

    CCleaner works quite well if you don't want to clean up manually.

    +1 for CCleaner.

    To add, there is another place where temporary files are located [not TIF/Temporary Internet Files] and that is to hold down the Windows key and press R then type %temp% and press Enter. Most of the files in that Folder are not needed and a few small ones can't be deleted, message is they are in use. It's usually not a big problem until it comes to not having sufficient space available on the drive, a biggie with the SSD drives such as 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 120GB, 128GB, etc.
