    Clean up Temp files


    I am using a Surface 2 tablet which is RT 8.1. Is there a program to clean up/delete temporary files.
    I have tried Ccleaner but it says this program will not work on this machine. I have tried to find a way
    to make it workbut could not find a solution. That's why I am wondering if there is a program
    "somewhere" to clean up those temp files.
    Thanks

    Hello Shiron,

    If you like, you could use the included Disk Cleanup in Windows to do so.
