By doing this, you will be creating and saving space in the system and drives, the app will also confirm you how much data the duplicate files have consumed. You can also do the same with windows in built clean up functions. To starts the process, first remove the files from the recycle bin, then remove the temporary files. You can remove the temporary files on a daily basis by using the run option from the window icon, you need to type ‘temp’ and press the ok button, and you get a list of files, they are temp files, these files get downloaded to the computer while you are using your internet. Select all files by pressing control and shift and delete, all the files will be permanently deleted from the system.

The next option to free the disk space is by removing programs that you don’t use. You get a list of programs that can be uninstalled using the search option. Go through the programs if you feel that there are programs that are not been used by you just press uninstall. All the unwanted programs will be uninstalled and you also get the info of how much space has been freed. Even though the programs will be uninstalled there are many files that cannot be removed using the windows utility, these files stay in the pc without your knowledge. If you feel you need to remove even these files, then you can use some uninstaller like the Revo uninstallers and remove the unwanted programs completely. Once you are through with unwanted programs, the next step will be to compress the remaining data so that more space can be saved.
This is a very important step in the clean up your computer process, compressing the data is also called de fragmenting. The data stored in your computer will be deposited in a random way and it will take time when you load the computer, by de fragmenting, you get all the data closer to one place and the loading time will be reduced. In general, windows has an option auto de fragmenting method, where in the computer will do it automatically and you don’t need not guide it. Other operating systems, you need to follow up the process to compress the data. The other way to clean up your computer is to remove the programs from launch. Once you load any program into your pc, it will launch in the start up program, when you start your computer, all the programs that are in the start up list will open thus the speed of your computer will be reduced. You can stop this by unselecting the program from the start up list, you need not delete the program but you can use it when you need it.
The most important thing that you need to do is to keep your desktop organised. Don’t dump all the files on the desktop, because once you start your computer, all the files and programs in the desktop get started and this will slow down your pc process. Make sure that you keep only shortcuts for all programs on the desktop and save all the files in folders and store the same in any drive. Arrange all the icons on the Desktop so that you will get to know which one you use often so that you can delete unwanted icons. Always try to update your system with all the latest updates so that you are well organised and up to date with all the systems.
