Microsoft is currently working on a software called PC Manager whose objective is to allow you to easily clean and optimize your computer under Windows. Currently available in beta version, PC Manager is a kind of CCleaner made in Microsoft.
CCleaner has been on the market for many years and has become an essential application for cleaning your PC easily and quickly. There is also a mobile version. With PC Manager, Microsoft risks offering a competing solution to that of the publisher Piriform.
PC Manager integrates its own functionalities but it also allows faster access, within the same interface, to applications scattered in different places of the Windows 11 system settings. In general, PC Manager will allow better management of storage and processes. This software could land on Windows 10 and Windows 11 (to be confirmed for the first).
Here is a list of features under development by Microsoft:
- Perform a full cleanup of the OS
- Delete temporary files via the “Boost” button which also frees up RAM
- Find the largest files on disks
- Quickly end heavy tasks (processes that consume the most RAM)
- Delete unused apps to free up disk space
- Manage applications that start automatically
- Change default browser
- Scan the machine for viruses via Defender
- Check for Windows Updates
At the moment, it seems quite difficult to get the beta version of PC Manager, or at least to make it work. When you access the download site, you are redirected to Microsoft’s Chinese site, and the downloaded file allows you to install the tool, but the software does not run once installed. In any case, on the PC under Windows 11 22H2 on which I did the test.
What do you think of this new tool?
