Changing Application settings

The System Cleaner can remove the traces left behind by applications, such as a list of recently opened files. While these history traces can be helpful, they also reveal your activity to other people using your computer. To maintain your privacy, you can remove all these traces. (The cleanup does not delete the files, just the places where Windows tracks your activity.)

To change Application settings:

  1. Open the main interface.

  2. Click System Tools, the System Cleaner tab, then the Cleanup Settings link.


    The System Cleaner Settings panel opens, with Windows Desktop highlighted on the left.

  3. Click Applications.

    Applications currently installed on your computer will appear in this panel.


  4. On the right side, click in the checkboxes to select or deselect applications you want cleaned. The System Cleaner will remove file history traces for applications with a checkmark.

  5. When you're done, click the Save All button.
