  1. I must re-write my previous reply. It should be: "Yes, but in Windows Explorer & SPECCY the carets point to the right or down. But here the carets point up or down (but not to the right). A small but important difference. - Agree. There is no law about what should be used but I find the current situation not "intuitive".
  2. - Yes, but in Windows Explorer & SPECCY the carets point to the right or up. But here the carets point up or down (but not to the right). A small but important difference.
  3. See the picture attached. (the picture & story in the previous post wasn't too clear) The red & blue arrows point each to a(n) (inverse) "caret" (are these characters called "carets" ????). I think the "carets" should be swapped. The carets (blue arrow) should be an "inverse caret" and the inverse carets (red arrows) should be a (normal) caret.
  4. Driver Update: 1) I like v5.82 better than v5.83. In v5.82 there are always "Upward arrows" (what is the proper name for this character ?) to the left of the name of the newly proposed driver. Whereas in v5.83 this "upward arrow" is missing when the user opens this pane/screen for the first time. Only after clicking next to the name of the new driver those "upward arrow" shows up. I think these "arrows" should always be shown. Bug in the program code ? Back to the program code of v5.82 ? 2) When "Driver Update" proposes a driver update then there is an "upward arrow" next to the name of the driver. See the picture for an example. Clicking on that "arrow" expands the list downwards and provides the user with one or more new drivers. Then a "downward arrow" shows up. Clicking on that arrow makes the new updates go away. I think it should precisley the oppposite: the "upward arrows" should be replaced by the "downward arrows" in the program code. And the "downward arrows" should be replaced by "upward arrows" in the program code. So, just swap these "arrows". That will take away the confusion. Then - in this screen - the program code is more intuitive. 3) CCleaner is able to pull up new drivers for one system. Is there a way to download the installation files of these new (proposed) drivers to one's system ? Where does CCleaner get those drivers from ? (I would love to have those new drivers stored on my HD / SSD just in case I must re-install my Windows Operating System).

    Windows 11 ?

    - I was very close to buying a brand new laptop with Windows 10. But when a TPM chip is required for Windows 11 then I am not in a hurry anymore to move to Windows 10 anytime soon. I simply will have to see what the future brings.
  6. @ nergal I just did a "clean" re-install of CC again and noticed that there is no "Winapp2.ini" anymore in the CC folder.
  7. @ACP - Your screenshots don't give a clear answer about what to do next. - Above I gave a few suggestions about how you can determine what part of/box in CC is causing that icon to disappear. - Based on what I see in your screenshots I would 1) re-install Teams 2) install Tweaking's Registry Backup (it allows the user to make a backup/copy of the reigistry) 3) run the CC registry cleaner. Did the icon disappear ? 4) you can use Registry Backup (see above) to restore the registry to that previous state.
  8. @ACP - CC also installs a file called "winapp2.ini". Based on the info in that file CC will show the user a number of boxes for program A, B, C etc. If that file doesn't contain info about program D then CC won't show a box for program D. In your case, the standard "Winapp2.ini" file doesn't contain info for "Teams" and then CC doesn't show a box called "Microsoft Teams". - On my system I have used the program "voldemort" (not supported by the good folks of CC, use it at your own risk. although I have experieneced no adverse effects) and that program gives the user of CC a lot of info for more programs (e.g. Teams) and - depending on what you have installed on your system - more boxes in CC.
  9. - Ah, I have used the program CCenhancer. Then Winapp2.ini will contain that set of lines. I overlooked that.
  10. - The lines in Winapp2.ini for "Microsoft Teams" (see below) need to be improved/updated. The line "DetectFile= .......... " targets the wrong file/folder and then there won't be a box called "Microsoft Teams" in CC. - When I look at the lines below then I am confused. The line "DetectFile= .......... " and "Filekey" #12 through 18 point to subfolders under "%localappdata%" . But filekeys #1 through 11 point to %appdata%. My personal opinion is that filekey #1 through 11 should point to "%loacalappdata%. But I don't use "Teams" and can't check the lines below.

  11. - if there is not a "Microsoft Teams" box then we can rule out that the icon is deleted by cleaning the "Teams" user data. It seems that "Teams" places that icon in a MS Office related folder. But which folder ? - It seems that CC is not able to find the folder where data of "Microsoft Teams" is located. User data for "Microsoft Teams" is supposed to be located (according to winapp2.ini) in the folders "c:\users\ ............. \Microsoft\Teams\". Can you find that combination of those 2 subfolders on your system ? Or something that's only slightly different ? It should be in "c:\users\...... ". If so, what is the full path ? - Post a screenshot of all the MS Office boxes that show up in your copy of CC. The box for "Teams" should be a box called "Microsoft Teams" and not "MS Teams". - Untick all boxes and only run the registry cleaner. Does that icon disappear (again) ? - Unselect the registry cleaner. Now tick only one "MS Office" box and run CC again. And do this for each "MS Office" box. Which "MS office" box makes the icon disappear ? If that doesn't give a clue the perhaps you must do the same procedure for the "Microsoft ..... "boxes ?
  12. Answering a few questions would already help a lot: - What version of CCleaner (CC) did you use ? Did this happen in previous versions of CC as well ? - What version of Outlook & Teams do you use ? - Would re-installing / repair installing Teams help to bring that icon back ? - Does that icon disappear when you tick the "Teams" box in CC or does the icon disappear when you tick (one of) the Office box(as) in CC ?
  13. Or perhaps CCleaner can be made to remember the size of the "System volume Information" folder before and after removing one or more SRPs. And then display the difference (= amount of freed up diskspace).
  14. CCleaner can be used to delete one or more System Restore Points (SRP). I think the program can provide more details on how much memory these System Restore Points are occupying on a SSD or HD. I assume it's very difficult to determine what the size of each SRP is. So, then the program code could follow a different method that would nonetheless provide more information to the user. 1) Display all the SRPs that were found. 2) Read the size of the folder "System Volume Information" (= total amount of all disk space occupied by all SRPs) where all the SRPs are stored. And display the size of that folder in KB / MB / GB (whatever applies) under /above the list with these SRPs (what ever you like best) and display the % of total occupied disk space. 3) After the user has deleted one or more SRPs repeat step 2)
  15. - There are users who have complained that for Defraggler (& Recuva & Speccy) there weren't any new updates issued for a while. I am also one of those users who would love to see a new version of Defraggler with all the bugs/"Weak spots" fixed. - I understand that some programs of CCleaner have (top) priority when it comes to issueing new (updated) versions. Like CCleaner. And that's quite understandable because programs like MS Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox and MS Onedrive are updated on a regular basis (say every 3 or 4 weeks). And that could mean that the program code of CCleaner also needs to be updated with top priority. - But then programs like Speccy, Recuva & Defraggler don't receive too much attention when it comes to updating the programs. (Yes, I know that right now the developers of CCleaner are planning for new updates for 2 of these programs) That's why I would suggest / propose the following update policy for these 3 programs: 1) Collect all the suggestions & bug reports for these 3 programs. 2) If there is a need to issue an "Emergency update" then do so. E.g. when Microsoft issues a version of its "NET Framework" then SPECCY should be updated ASAP. 3) Dedicate one week each year to Defraggler, Speccy & Recuva. E.g a week per year for each program. Take all the reported bugs & suggestions and fix those bugs/implement the code changes for those 3 programs in those "dedicated weeks". If there are no bugs to be fixed in one program then that week can be used for something else.
