Clean Web Junk in Windows 10

Microsoft Edge, which replaced the Internet Explorer in Windows 10, stores Internet-retrieved information on your computer. Such information varies widely, but it includes: web addresses of websites (you frequently visited), web cookies, cache contents, websites log-in details & passwords, form fill-up data, and so on.

Now the Question is Why I should clean system & web junks?

Over times, this information causes several problems with your PC. And the result is that your Microsoft Edge may run slow, freeze or crash. This all happened just because of corrupted files you stored. What’s more, some webpages might not load properly, or display cached content rather than showing live version of web pages. That’s why you have to clean your system and web junkies. But cleaning these is not so easy. Don’t worry, we’ve found some solutions for you. Read on..

While Using Microsoft Edge

When you’re using the Microsoft Edge web browser, click the Hub icon on upper right corner. Now you’ve a right side panel with these four tabs:

  • Favourites;
  • Reading List;
  • History; and
  • Downloads.

Got them? Okay, now click “Clear all history” and “Clear all” links in History and Downloads tabs respectively.

While Using Delete Browsing History Dialog

Open the Internet Properties dialog by typing “inetcpl.cpl” in the Search Box of your Run dialog. Check-up all boxes in the Delete Browsing History dialog that appears after clicking the “Delete” button under General tab > Browsing History frame. Go ahead, click “Delete” button.

While Using File Explorer

While using the File Explorer icon on your Taskbar, here’s how you can clear up all temporary files:

  • C:\Windows\Temp\
  • C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\
  • C:\Users\USER_NAME_HERE\AppData\Local\Temp\
  • C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\

If this does not show you the location of application data folder, use the View tab in the Ribbon interface. It shows all your hidden files and folders.

Beware! Given that there’s a huge amount of webpage content, images sometimes take longer than expected time to delete. Temporary folders reside in your system drive. You have to get rid out of them. Don’t know how?

Use ST Cleaner (Automatic)

Why? This automatic ST Cleaner deletes several GBs of junk files. Interesting, isn’t it? Yes, download it, start the scan, and click green colored “Clean Now” button. Congrats, you’ve made it.
