IT Tips & Tricks: 3 Step Disk Cleanup


Here is a tip from Information Services’ IT Coordinator, Patrick Nehmé, to help speed up your PC and get rid of some unwanted files.

  • Step 1 – Click on the Start menu
  • Step 2 – Select All Programs > Accessories > System Tools
  • Step 3 – Choose Disk Cleanup – This will find unwanted junk and items such as offline web pages, your Recycle Bin and temporary files on your PC and give you the option to delete them.

    Can you preform a Disc Cleanup and continue to work on your computer?

    • Hi Sandra,

      You will still be able to work on your computer. The cleanup may take a few minutes but you will still be able to access other areas of your computer.

      Hope the cleanup serves you well!
