    Awesome as always, thanks for this. I stumbled upon this section the other day, but wasn't too sure how to use it. Now I know, from reading this.

    There still doesn't seem to be an option to clean up as an admin like in the classic disk cleanup utility. I'm assuming that if you choose to clean up in the settings app, it only affects your current account. It's not practical to switch to an admin account to perform maintenance tasks like that, unless there's a way to launch settings as one. When classic disk cleanup eventually disappears from control panel, things will get more inconvenient for the cleanliness freaks.
