Delete Temp Files:

Open a “RUN” window of your computer. That can be opened by using “Window Key+ r” buttons. Either we can also open it from Opening ‘Start Menu’ and from typing RUN into ‘Search bar’ also.

You must select all the checkboxes and then press the Ok button. The programme will permanently delete all these junk files from your computer. Follow this procedure for all other drives one by one.
