Software recommendation: piece by piece raid to complete the system “cleaning”

If you are suffering from the impact of junk files on the efficiency of your system, and you don’t want to install some tools and software that contain bundles, you should look for a small software that is easy to use and save you money. You may want to give it a try.

1. Clean up application software junk

The main source of junk files is the temporary files generated by various tools (including the tools that come with the system and the installed software). We can use AppCleaner to clean up software junk flexibly and categorically.

Click the Apps sub-tab under the Cleaner tab, and select Cleaner in the list by categories such as Applications, Internet, Multimedia, Utilities, Windows Tools, Windows Store Applications, etc. You can select all the software in one category at one time, or select them individually (Figure 1). After selecting, click Analyze button to analyze, and then click Clean button to clean up.


2. Clean up browser garbage

Web browsers are another major source of system junk. When you use more than one browser, more junk files are generated, and it is more troublesome to clean them one by one, AppCleaner specifically separates browser junk cleaning to facilitate the cleaning of browser junk.

Under the “Cleaner→Browsers” tab, select a browser by category, including IE or Firefox/Mozilla/Thunderbird, then select the browser junk option you want to clean, and click the Analyze and Clean buttons to analyze and clean. (Figure 2).


3. System and registry cleanup

After the junk files of browsers and other applications are cleaned up, there may be some leftover files or redundant items in the system or registry. In this case, you can use the Registry and Windows tab to clean up the registry and system files.

Registry cleanup mainly scans and cleans up some frequently involved items changes, such as application paths, applications, fonts, help files, installation files, missing items, uninstalled programs, etc. (Figure 3). Windows system cleanup, on the other hand, analyzes and cleans up 3 items: basic system items, advanced system items, and file explorer.


Tip: Use tools to help optimize

In addition to cleaning the junk files in the system, we can also optimize the system with the help of two tools provided by AppCleaner. Use the uninstall tool to uninstall any installed program or application on the system. The startup items tool allows you to activate, disable, and delete items that participate in autorunning on the system (Figure 4).
