  2. Can't Delete Temporary Internet Files OR Temporary Files

    Completely ridiculous. Band new $1200 laptop. After the update, all of the permissions are lost to my folders - I fixed this - and now I can't clear the temp files for anything. I have a 256 gig SSD and these are a nuisance. Windows 10 was supposed to
    be portable device friendly but geese - this isn't a file server - you don't have to protect a temp directory in case other clients need it! ugh.

    What happens if try to delete the files using disk cleanup?

    Here is another way to clear the temporary internet files:

    1. Search for "Internet Options".
    2. Click the first result.
    3. In Internet Options, click the "Delete..." button under Browsing History.
    4. Make sure "Temporary Tnternet files and website files" is checked and click "Delete" button.
    5. Open Edge browser.
    6. Click the Hub button (3 lines).
    7. Click the "History" button.
    8. Click the "Clear all history" button.
    9. Make sure that "Cached data and files" is checked.
    10. Click "Clear".
    11. Enable hidden files and folders. How to view hidden files and folders in Windows 8.1
    11. Type %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE in the Run dialog and click OK.
    12. Delete any files in there.
     
  6. Apparently , Edge us running at all times, needs to be closed to be cleaned.

    can delete the cache from Edge itself, but automated tools can't do it, I guess.

    That reading in Disk Cleanup can't be correct. Click the "View files" button and delete everything in the window that opens, then.

    The in-built Disk cleaner should do it, it can get rid of 13GB+ at least, my Windows.old file was successfully deleted,
    But it does it in Admin mode.

    Note Id post on CCleaner forum, suspect its an update they need to include in the next version, Close Edge for full clean,
    You never know you might get a free Pro Licence
    Im watching the guests and if you need a confirmation will provide one

    I've had this same problem. I tried the view file and it doesn't contain anywhere near the size files as disk clean up claims.

    I think this is an actual thing. Edge looks like it might be stashing away space somewhere and holding it captive.

  12. Do you use Store a lot? I guess, that browsing store actually uses Edge.
    I have never even opened Edge and I have just cleaned about 110MB.

    No store usage for me. But, even if I did, it wouldn't explain the apparently phantom space usage and inability to delete it. But I guess it would make sense that the system would have a hard time deleting files that aren't there.

    I just found the solution to deleting the Temporary internet files in Windows 10 !!! *Smile
    Just go to the following folder:
    C:\Users\(Your Name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache
    Then "Select All" (Ctrl + A)
    Then press the "Delete' Key on your keyboard.
    That should "do the trick".. I just did it.
    Now my machine 'flies' (works very fast, like it should be)
    Let me know if this works for you.
