To extend the life of your computer, you should make computer service a habit, and disk cleanup is one of the essentials of good computer service.

Disk Cleanup is a Windows tool that removes unused and unwanted files cluttering you computer. Think of it as computer spring cleaning, but do it more regularly than once a year 🙂
To perform a disc cleanup, you should click on the Start button, then select Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disc Cleanup.
Once you get there, a small box will pop up. It will ask you to select the files to delete. Please remember, that most files that will be offered to you by the computer are OK to delete. However, if you are not sure about some of them, it is best to not select that file. After you have made your decisions, click OK and the unused files will be removed.
