How to Automatically Clear Cache Using Storage Sense


How to Automatically Clear Cache Using Storage Sense

With the built-in Storage Sense feature in Windows 11, you can automatically clear your PC’s cache at a regular interval. You get to specify what cache types you’d like to clear, and the feature will only delete those cache files.

To use the feature, launch the Settings app by pressing Windows+i keys at the same time.

In Settings, from the left sidebar, select “System.”

Select "System" in Settings.

On the “System” page, click “Storage.”

Click "Storage" on the "System" page.

In the “Storage” menu, click “Storage Sense.”

Select "Storage Sense" on the "Storage" page.

At the top of the “Storage Sense” page, turn on the “Automatic User Content Cleanup” option. This enables the Storage Sense feature.

Enable "Automatic User Content Cleanup" on the "Storage Sense" page.

On the same page, configure the options for what cache files you’d like to be deleted. This includes automatically emptying the Recycle Bin, clearing the Downloads folder, and so on.

Configure the Storage Sense feature.


Storage Sense runs at the specified interval. If you’d like to run it right away, then scroll the current page to the bottom. There, click the “Run Storage Sense Now” button.

Click "Run Storage Sense Now" on the "Storage Sense" page.

Storage Sense will declutter your PC using your specified options.
