Trash Context menu


Recommended Posts


When I install CCeaner on Windows,

I have Two choices for the trash context menu.

I would like to know what is the best and the fastest :

Open Ccleaner
Execute Ccleaner

Open CCleaner will do as it says and open the CCleaner user interface so that you can then run a clean yourself.

Run CCleaner will do a Custom Clean (not Health Check) in the background without opening the user interface.
So that's quicker because you don't have to click anything else.
(You will see the CCleaner icon flashing in the System Tray while it is cleaning).

You can have one, both, or neither in the Recycle bin (Trash) context menu; and you can turn them on and off as you like.
Simply tick or untick them in Options>Settings anytime you want to change what is shown in the context menu.

eg. Both ON

Both OFF

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:
