Microsoft has made it easier to clear out old files through resetting your PC directly from the operating system.


  1. Resetting can troubleshoot technical issues.
  2. For Windows 11, go to Start > Settings > System > Recovery, then select Reset this PC.
  3. Choose between keeping your files or deleting everything.
  4. Back up important files before proceeding.
  5. Do not proceed until you are absolutely sure that you have backed up everything you need to backup.
