Clean your Windows 10 like a pro

The space on your hard drive is running low and you don’t know what to do. What to clean? Is there an app that can clean my PC?

The vast majority of Windows users rely on third party apps like CCleaner to do this job. Make yourself a favor: don’t do this. Windows has a built-in tool that can safely clean-up your PC and it’s called Disk Cleanup 4.png.
