Clearing windows 10 cashes.


First, learn how to open Command Prompt with administrative privileges. Simply search for "cmd" in the Start menu, right-click on "Command Prompt," and select "Run as administrator."

Once in Command Prompt, we'll guide you through specific commands to clear different types of caches:

To clear the Windows Store cache, use the command: wsreset.exe. This maintenance step ensures smooth functioning of the Microsoft Store app, enhances performance, and resolves app installation and update issues.

Clear temporary files with the del command. For instance, del /q /s /f %TEMP%\* deletes all files and folders in the temporary directory, contributing to system performance and disk space management.

Clear the thumbnail cache with the command: del /f /s /q /a %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\thumbcache_*.db. This optimizes disk space usage, enhances file browsing performance, and ensures accurate thumbnail previews.

Learn to clear the Windows Update cache to resolve update-related issues. Stop the Windows Update service with net stop wuauserv and rename the SoftwareDistribution folder. Restart the service with net start wuauserv for a smoother update process.

Clear the DNS resolver cache with ipconfig /flushdns for improved internet connectivity, security, and performance.

Lastly, clear the icon cache with ie4uinit.exe -ClearIconCache to address icon-related issues, enhance system performance, and ensure up-to-date thumbnail previews.

Follow along with our step-by-step instructions to optimize your Windows computer's performance and ensure a smoother computing experience.
