    How to Add Cleanup to Context Menu of Drives in Windows 10

    information   Information
    You can use Disk Cleanup to reduce the number of unnecessary files on your drives, which can help your PC run faster. 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.

    You can add Cleanup to the context menu of drives that will open Disk Cleanup to reduce the number of unnecessary file on the selected disk to free up disk space.

    This tutorial will show you how to add Cleanup to the context menu of drives for all users in Windows 10.

    While you must be signed in as an administrator to add or remove the context menu, all users will be able to use the context menu.

    Note   Note
    When you right click or press and hold on a drive (ex: "C") in This PC and click/tap on Cleanup, it will open Disk Cleanup for that specific drive.
