Temporary files on your Windows 10 system are exactly what the name suggests, temporary. They have limited use and are no longer needed after they have finished their work. However, they remain on your computer until you manually delete them.
In other words, if you are not interested in regular maintenance of your PC and do not remove it on a regular basis, its number and the amount of memory it consumes can quickly increase, which may also affect your PC’s performance.
Therefore, this type of file should be kept under control, and there is no better way to deal with it than knowing how to delete the temporary files yourself.
