    A little known fact is that the Disk Clean up function doesn't show up in start screen searches.

    Even less known is that it can still be access at C:\Windows\system32\cleanmgr.exe! I just used this and freed up about 2 GB.

    Create a shortcut on start screen or desktop and go to properties>> shortcut>> advanced and check "run this program as an administrator", this way it will always scan system files without you telling it to, which frees even more space.

    Disk cleaner can still be accessed from Control Panel, System and Security, Administrative Tools.

    Or right click on the hard drive, click properties, and click "Disk cleanup".
