    Just a tad harsh, Ix. It's not for me, simply because it scares the bejeebers out of me. Just because I'm a coward where CCleaner is concerned, I would never diss anyone who likes CCleaner, states they like it, knows how to use it, and can safely do what they need to do.
    Perhaps I was harsh but I would also diss someone who rode a bike without ATGATT.

    There are apparently some edge cases (Edge cookies) that currently need CCleaner (I didn't check it but if @Bree says so, it is almost certainly true); but even if that is so a fix to Edge would be preferable to a monolithic cleaning program. The issue is you are trusting the developers of the "cleaning" program to be more up to date than the developers of the original software which is, while possible, risky.

    I didn't mean to offend anyone though - it is just my opinion which anyone is free to ignore.

    For full disclosure I do have it and run it occasionally - my point was more focused on the "I ran it for years and nothing broke" argument - as if that proved anything.

    I use it to selectively clean cookies across all my browsers (Edge, IE and FF) with a 'whitelist' of the few cookies I need to retain (site login cookies, for example).

    Have you tried selectively deleting cookies in Edge? Let me know if you ever find a way.
    Yes, there is a way for this! Just click on the lock icon shown directly left of the website address in the address bar you are visiting. A menu will open. Now click on cookies button. You can select them all or individually. Now click remove. Done.

    Edge version used: 78.0.276.11 (Official build) beta (64 bit)

    Welcome to TenForums mem09.

    Yes, I've seen that in the Chromium replacement for Edge and it is a welcome addition. But it's still in development, it won't be rolled to replace the old Edge for a while. Even Windows 10 version 1909 that (rumour has it) is within weeks of release still used 'classic' Edge.

    But anyway, that doesn't do what I need. I want to be able to just keep cookies for TenForums and a few other key sites and delete everything else in one click. Revisiting every site I've been to just to be able to clean their cookies is a non-starter.

    It works perfectly in my RTM version of EDGE......as you quote you only wish to keep a few cookies....delete all then the next time you visit your preferred sites....cookies installed.

    Thanks for the info, Memo, and welcome to TenForums. It's always nice to have one more potential guru among us.

    'Delete all' involves signing in to each site on my next visit. That's what I'm trying to avoid by whitelisting the login cookies and deleting the rest.
