Hey Folks,

I am encountering a serious problem in my Windows 10 PC. I am unable to delete temp file in Windows 10. Any idea how to fix?

Is it OK to delete temp files in Windows 10?
It IS safe to delete any temp files that aren't open and in use by an application, and since Windows won't let you delete open files, it's safe to (try to) delete them at any time.

Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!!!!
Proceed ONLY at your risk, as I assume NO responsibility for what others CHOOSE to do.

I state that these procedures work FLAWLESSLY for me.
I hope they'll do the same for you.

To delete temporary files:
  1. In the search box on the taskbar, type disk cleanup, and select Disk Cleanup from the list of results.
  2. Select the drive you want to clean up, and then select OK.
  3. Under Files to delete, select the file types to get rid of. To get a description of the file type, select it.
  4. Select OK.
You can also delete "temp files" this way:

  1. Press the Windows Button + R to open the "Run" dialog box.
  2. Enter this text: %temp%
  3. Click "OK." This will open your temp folder.
  4. Press Ctrl + A to select all.
  5. Press "Delete" on your keyboard and click "Yes" to confirm.
  6. All temporary files will now be deleted.
Happy deleting, mate!

Sorry for delayed response. Actually recently I again encountered the same issue and I open this forum for a solution and got this post.

But after searching online I got this solution. But I am utterly confused if this method will perform perfectly or not. Could someone please help me if this article might be helpful in anyway?
