After the Windows 10 upgrade, many users find their computer is stuck on a poorly slow performance and they often want a system cleanup in the new Windows OS. In fact, it is the files and programs we fail to clean up result in the problem.

Usually, a 100% disk usage warning follows such slow computer, which really affects the continuity of your office work. If your mouse pointer lags or disappears, your Bluetooth speakers sound delays or your PC boots slowly, it is better for you to perform a system cleanup over the computer to remove those junk files and speed up the PC.

How to Perform a System Cleanup in Windows 10

We’ve had some tips for you to perform a Windows OS cleanup. You can clean your PC via either a manual way or an automatic PC cleanup utility. Let’s take a look at the top 2 ways you can utilize to clean up Windows 10.

Disk Cleanup is a handy tool built in Windows 10 that you can use to remove the junk files, wipe out registry traces and free the disk space. You can follow the steps below to clean the disks.

After the drive C cleanup is completed, you can repeat the same steps to perform cleanups on drives (D:), (E:), (F:), etc. You have to be patient because this may take you quite a long period.
