Removing Clutter From Your Computer
Windows XP Home & Professional - and all other versions of Windows (with slight modifications)

Keeping your computer clean and free from garbage and junk files (like temporary files - ".tmp") is essential if you want to keep your computer running fast. Keeping your computer free from unnecessary clutter also helps make your computer last longer. Like any other machine, if you keep it clean and take care of it, it will serve you better longer!

This example will show you how to clean temporary files (.tmp) files from you computer. Please note that Temporary files are not the same as "Temporary Internet Files". Temporary files are created by Windows constantly. It's a good idea to remove them so they don't build up and eventually slow your computer down. So let's learn how to clear all Temporary Files from you computer.

First, click on your start button, then go to find, then files or folders......in this "Find All Files" dialog box, make sure where it says "look in", that it is looking at your C: drive (or, if you have multiple hard drives or partitions, be sure "All Local Drives" is selected) and be sure there is a check in the box next to where it says "include subfolders".....Now, click your mouse pointer in the box that says "named" and type the following, exactly as it is here.

*.tmp

Once it finds all the files, it will list them in the box below and at the bottom it will tell you how many it found. Hit CTRL+A to select them all, then hit your delete key. If it won't delete some of them, that's because they are attached to some program running in the background, so you may have to delete them one at a time. All of these files are safe to delete. Once they are all deleted, you can save this process as an Icon on your desktop so you can repeat it with one click. Still inside the "Find All Files" box, go to the File menu (on the top toolbar) and click on "Save Search". This will put an icon on your desktop that you can click on any time you want to delete temps again!  You can remove other garbage files using the same method. Be sure you type the correct extension and be sure what you're about to remove is really junk!

An easier (and safer) way to keep you computer free from clutter is to use a program like our Zappit System Cleaner.
