Synopsis
This will show you how to open and use Disk Cleanup to find and remove temporary files on your computer that you decide you no longer need.

information   Information
Disk Cleanup finds and then removes temporary files on your computer that you decide you no longer need to free up hard drive space.
Tip   Tip
For how to delete the Vista Temporary Files in Disk Cleanup that are less than a week old, see: How to Set Disk Cleanup to Delete Vista Temporary Files Less than a Week Old
warning   Warning

Here's How:
1. Open the Start Menu.​

B) Go to step 3.​

OR
2. Open the Start Menu.​
A) In the white line (Start Search) area, type Cleanmgr and press Enter.​

3. Choose if you want to clean files from just your user account or from all user accounts on the computer. (See screenshot below)​
NOTE: You will not see this window at all if you are running Disk Cleanup from the built-in Administrator account (How to Enable or Disable the Real Built-in Administrator Account in Vista). If you do not have the Files from all users on this computer option, then you are not running Disk Cleanup from within an administrator account. In an administrator account you will also need to make sure that you have UAC turned on to see it.

There's also a way to set up a batch file to run this. First you need to go to Start -> Run and then type in CleanMgr /sageset:99 (where 99 is just a reference number to refer to your configuration of CleanMgr when you run the batch file). When you hit enter, the Disk Cleanup window will pop up (shown in step #7 above). You can change to configuration and then click ok. After that, create a text file with the following in it:

cleanmgr /sagerun:99
exit

Save that text file as <filename>.bat and put it in a folder that you use for admin tasks (e.g. Documents\Admin\). Then go to your Task Scheduler and set this up to run whenever you want. You can also add other tasks to run in the batch (.bat) file, like copying or deleting temp files or folders, etc.

Thanks for the reminder on this.

Hi Swarfega,

For this, you will need to be running Disk Cleanup from within an administrator account and have UAC turned on. The NOTE is only for the screenshot under step 5.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Kavita,

Yes, that was already there as step 2, but I cleaned it up a bit more to make it stand out better. ;)

Thank you,
Shawn

Hello Dylana,

You can check all of them, except Hibernation File since you are using Hibernate, to be deleted if you would like to. It will not hurt anything since they are just junk files. :)
