Empty the Recycle Bin
When you click “delete” on a file or a program, it doesn’t go away for good – not immediately, anyway. Instead, it sits in a kind of purgatory in your computer’s Recycle Bin.
As things pile up in the Recycle Bin, your computer can start exhibiting some very annoying problems.
If sluggish startups and frequent crashes are occurring with increasing frequency – and your computer’s recycle bin is very full – go ahead and empty it.
From then on, get into the habit of doing so about one time per week. This small but important strategy can make a huge difference.
