windows 8.1 local packages cleaning

Recommended Posts

hi fans,


is there a way to cleaning all "app" caches/temps in windows 8.1?


the apps are all saved in the following path:



ccleaner found only 3 from windows store (bing finance, bing maps, bing news)

i have several more from this stuff!


for ex: bing weather, microsoft reader, ...


can add the "bing weather" app for cleaning? and "microsoft reader"?

C:\Users\mynick\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.BingWeather_8...\AC\Microsoft\CryptnetUrlCache\Content -> *.*

C:\Users\mynick\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.BingWeather_8...\AC\Microsoft\CryptnetUrlCache\MetaData -> *.*

C:\Users\mynick\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.BingWeather_8...\AC\Temp -> *.tmp

C:\Users\mynick\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.BingWeather_8...\LocalState -> *.TMP

C:\Users\mynick\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.BingWeather_8...\LocalState\Cache -> cachedb.sqlite? (3 different)

C:\Users\mynick\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.BingWeather_8...\LocalState\Cache\Images -> *.*


C:\Users\mynick\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Reader_8...\LocalState\MRU -> with all subfolders (*.*)

i dont know it there are more things to delete...




it seems there are also some apps that no longer active/installed since ages (for ex. with folders from 2013 and no newer entries/files)


is it possible that ccleaner shows all installed apps -> cleaner -> applications -> windows store? for tick or untick to clean?

is it possible that ccleaner can clean all installed apps? (it seems that for all apps are similar paths and folders-build)

is it possible that ccleaner can delete/deinstall all leftover apps

For the cleaning side look through the Winapp2.ini file.

For uninstalling there's a few websites that list Command Prompt/Power Shell commands that will remove apps, but keep in mind allot of the apps have stuff stored elsewhere and full removal may not be easy.
