How to Delete Temporary Files on Windows 10

Temporary files are created to contain information while creating a new file temporarily. They can be created by computer programs for various purposes; mainly when the program cannot allocate enough memory for its tasks, when the program works on data larger than the address space of the architecture, or as a primitive form of interprocess communication.

Windows makes a bunch of files like this and saves them in case they are needed again. Accumulated temporary files can take up several gigabytes of memory. Deleting these files is completely safe because if you need them again, Windows just re-creates them.

If you are running out of memory on the C drive, deleting these files may solve the problem. See how in our video below.
