How to Delete Temporary Files in Windows 10: This is a tutorial on how to delete temporary files in Windows 10 in Three Ways. One really easy way to free up some disk space in Windows is to delete temporary files, sometimes referred to as temp files.

Temp files are exactly what they probably sound like: files that your operating system only needed to exist temporarily while in use, but are now just wasting space.


What are Temporary Files in Windows 10:

Temporary Files in Windows are those junk files whose use is only temporary and become redundant once the task in hand is completed. Such temporary file are created to hold data temporarily while a file is being created or processed or used.


Why are Temporary Files created:

Windows Temporary files are created by the operating system during the normal course of its running when there may not be enough memory allocated for the task. Software which use large amounts of data like Graphics, Video or Media editing software also create temporary files. Such created temporary files are more often than not, left behind even when the task is over, leading to their wasting disk space.

Temporary Files are also created for backup purposes, by programs. For instance, Microsoft Office saves a Temporary File of the open document every few minutes. If you save the document and exit, the Temporary File gets deleted. If the program crashes unexpectedly, the Temporary File is not deleted. They can thus be useful to help recover lost data if the program or the system crashes. Ideally, the Temporary Files should get deleted once the program exits. But this is not always the case, leading to wasted disk space.
