Is your computer running slow? Try this quick fix! Use the built-in Disk Cleanup tool to remove unnecessary files and free up disk space. Simply search “Disk Cleanup” in your Windows search bar, select your main drive (usually C:), and let the tool scan for temporary files, system files, and more that can be safely deleted. This will help boost your computer’s performance and make it run like new again!
