Quickly Clear your Temporary Directory Folder

The temporary directory is a place where some applications use for storage of temporary files when it is being executed. The good applications will clear itself after exit but most of the applications don't. Therefore, the temporary directory actually takes up quite a bit of valuable space in your hard disk. There is a quick and easy way to quickly clear your temporary directory folder.

To quickly access your temporary directory, just do the following:
  1. Click on Start > Run
  2. Type %temp% and hit Enter

That's it. The temporary directory folder will open and you can delete most / all of the files within it. Do note that if the temporary file is currently being accessed by some application, you'll not be able to delete it.
