  11. A window should appear telling you how much it has deleted so far.
  • Note if the 'Empty Recycle bin' option is grayed and nothing happens when you click it, then the Recycle Bin is already empty, and you do not need to empty it.

4. Finished.Your PC should run a lot better now!


Do be careful you do not delete any critical files or your own documents. If you follow the guide carefully you shouldn't, but it is always a good idea to check the 'Recycle Bin' before emptying it, just in case!
