One-click Windows system cleaner

Developed by TheShrewdGamer, SCleaner is a lightweight solution that can help clean up and optimize your system. This utility allows you to perform the necessary tasks with one click. Aside from it being small in size, it is portable which means it requires no installation and doesn't leave any traces.

SCleaner works pretty similarly to Disk Cleanup, a traditional system cleaning program of Windows. You can consider it as a more user-friendly alternative to the conventional built-in software. This system optimizer is open-source and it can freely be downloaded and used as much as you want.

Effortlessly clean up and optimize

For any type of user, this simple tool is easily accessible even for those who have less technical knowledge. It provides a simple user interface that heavily relies on visual cues to instruct the entire operation of the program. Once you've launched the downloaded Windows application, you will be greeted by its straightforward interface. You will also notice its two main sections—Must Clean and Can Also be Cleaned.

The 'Must Clean' tab mostly contains the essential categories such as Obsolete link and Shortcuts, Icon and Thumbnail Cache, Temporary Files, Windows Error Reporting, etc. The 'Can Also be Cleaned' tab, on the other hand, displays the optional categories including Recycle Bin, Old Prefetch, Taskbar Jumplist, and Run History. Once you have chosen your preferred categories, this system cleanup tool will immediately perform a quick scan.

Highlighted in red, the number of files that were detected and can be erased will be shown beside each category you've selected. To start the clean-up process, just click the 'Clean' button at the bottom left of the software's interface. All the files that got deleted from your system will be presented in green afterward.

Prevent files cluttering

SCleaner is a valuable solution to always make sure that your system is not cluttered by unnecessary files. This task is important for better optimization and performance of your Windows desktop as piled-up files can ultimately slow down your computer. It is a free and user-friendly alternative on top of the built-in 'Disk Cleanup' feature on your PC.
