How to Configure CCleaner for PC Windows 10 64 Bit?

After using CCleaner for almost eight years, we can tell you the right way to configure it, and you don’t even have to spend scratch your head to understand its functions.

CCleaner will erase anything that we are going to mention.

One: Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer

Internet Cache: Whenever you visit a website, the browser saves data like Images, Thumbnails, Texts, etc.

Internet History: The browser will save the websites URL you visit.

Cookies: Your information, which you should delete without any doubt.

Download History: You download history always lies in the records, but you can delete it.

Last Download Location: If you downloaded any file, then you can find the location of it, but it will erase after cleaning.

Session: The history of your session removes after cleaning.

Set Aside Tabs: We don’t know about it.

Recently Typed URL’s: The last website you have visited erased.

Saved Form Information: Any form data that can be saved by the browser deleted by the cleaner.

Saved Passwords: If you have saved passwords of social media accounts, then it will be erased from the browser after cleaning it.

The same options will appear for Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera, Chrome, and other. The above information will help you understand the meaning for future references. 

Two: Windows Explorer

Windows Explorer data in the next row. CCleaner for PC free download Windows 10 will remove after you select it.

Recent Documents: In Windows 10, the most recently opened documents will appear in “Recent” tab. 

Run (In Start Menu): The function “RUN options will show up on your start menu, and it will remove them. It works on CCleaner for Windows 7 home basic 64 bit.

Other Explorer URL’s: It will remove URL from Windows Explorer.

Thumbnail Cache: The thumbnail cache stands for Images thumbnails saved in your PC, Videos, Movies, MP3 songs cover, and more. Overall, it’s just junk that takes up space on your PC. 

Taskbar Jump List: In the taskbar, the Explorer saves data like folder location, and you can remove it.

Network Passwords: If you are a normal user, then you should erase Network Passwords.

I have selected all these options to erase for my PC over the years.


The Windows saves plenty of unnecessary information that you can remove it with CCleaner. I have selected all of it to remove junk files.

Empty Recycle Bin: You don’t have to check for junk files in the recycle bin.

Temporary Files: In the folder, you can find browser data to program data as well. Overall, its junk that no one needs it.

Clipboard: We don’t know much about it.

Memory Dumps: Whenever a program fails or hangs, then it creates memory dumps for Windows error reporting. Overall, we don’t need it. Memory dumps take 300MB to 1GB of space, so delete them to save space in C.

CHDSK File Fragments: CHDSK stands for Check disk for errors. If you are a normal user, then you don’t need file fragments.

Windows Log Files: The log file creates reports of crashing programs, windows crashing, and other errors for Microsoft. If you are sending reports to Microsoft, then you should select it.

Windows Error Reporting: Junk!

DNS Cache: Junk!

Font Cache: Junk!

Start Menu Shortcuts: It creates additional shortcuts that no one needs.

Desktop Shortcuts: It also creates additional uninstalled programs shortcuts on Desktop. No normal users don’t need that data, so select it to delete it.

Four: Advanced

In my case, I have selected everything to expect “Wipe Free Space” because it takes plenty of time to wipe free space. I think it is an unnecessary feature that wastes your time. Let us show you the latest CCleaner for PC free download advanced functions.

Windows Event Logs: Windows saves every program activity data to improve their OS in next update. You can erase the data if you don’t need it.

Old Prefetch Data: You should delete the data because it will only take up space.

Menu Order Cache: The option has nothing to do with your UI or experience. You can delete it.

Tray Notification Cache: In the Windows 10, we have notification area so that the Window will save the notification. You can delete it if you don’t need notifications because it loads when you launch the OS.

Window size/Location Cache: The Windows will remember if you have minimised the Window or not. When you restart or start the PC next time, then it will show you minimised window because it remembers it. You can delete the data if you don’t want it.

Environment Path: We don’t have information on it.

User Assist History: Overall, another form of junk files that users do not need it.

IIS Log Files: The log files meant for Microsoft development.

Custom Files and Folders:  We don’t have information on it.

Wipe Free Space: NEVER SELECT IT! Keep it unchecked because it takes plenty of time.

There’s another tab called “APPLICATIONS.

One: Read the first “Microsoft Edge” paragraph to customise options for other browsers.

Two: I recommend you to select everything on the “Applications” part.

There’s a new option called “Monitoring” running in notification area and background, and you can turn it off. Launch CCleaner > Options > Monitoring > uncheck on “Enable system monitoring” and it’s annoying to have it in the notification.
