    How to Create Disk Cleanup All Items Checked Shortcut in Windows 10


    You can use Disk Cleanup on a regular basis to reduce the number of unnecessary files on your drives, which can free up drive space and help your PC run better. It can delete temporary files and system files, empty the Recycle Bin, and remove a variety of other items that you might no longer need.

    Disk Cleanup will already have items to delete checked and unchecked by default. You may want to have all items checked by default instead.

    This tutorial will show you how to create a Disk Cleanup shortcut that opens with all items checked by default in Windows 10.

    You will still be able to manually check and uncheck items in Disk Cleanup opened using this shortcut.

    This method also works very well.

    Run CMD as administrator.
    Run: cleanmgr.exe /sageset:0 (select all options you want)
    Create shortcut: cleanmgr.exe /sagerun:0 (run as administrator checked)
    You can use any number. Maybe create scheduled task to run every week?
