Temporary Files on Windows OS

A temporary file is a file that is made to hold data while another file is being made or updated.

The temporary file (also known as a temp file) is deleted after the program has been closed. Temporary files can be used for a wide variety of purposes, from storing and transferring data to handling settings, assisting with data recovery, and coordinating access for numerous users.

Older versions of Windows saved temporary files in the C:WindowsTemp folder, whereas current versions of Windows save them in the AppData folder.

Enter “Disk Cleanup” into the Windows search box and choose “temporary files” from the resulting list. From there, you can remove all of them quickly.
