  1. Search for the run command and type %temp% to open the temporary files folder.
  2. Select all files in the folder by pressing Ctrl + A.
  3. Permanently delete all the temporary files by pressing Shift + delete.
  4. If the deletion process is interrupted by a message saying that some files are currently in use, don't force-delete them. Check the box to skip those files that can't be deleted and click "OK."
