    Where is that little shovel and brush ? I have searched for a way to do a safe way to clean up to no avail.

    Hello Mobutler,

    The tutorial below can help show you how to open and use Disk Cleanup (cleanmgr.exe) in Windows 8.

    Found it, thanks for the info. Is there a way I can put the info on startup?

    Do you mean pin it to the Start screen?

    If so, then you could pin the C:\Windows\System32\cleanmgr.exe file to Start to do so.

    Start Screen - Pin or Unpin App, Folder, or Drive in Windows 8
