Include Yandex browser cleanup by CC default


kRel

Recommended Posts

Hi all . . .

I have been using CCleaner for a few years.

For a couple of years I have been using the popular Yandex browser - based on Chrome - but with the location of temporary files, cookies, etc. different from Chrome.
CCleaner to date does not include Yandex's paths in cleaning.

As a workaround, I added to CCleaner, Options> Include the path of the Yandex temporary files. 

There is perhaps some problem that prevents CCleaner from including Yandex paths natively (by default) as it already does for Firefox, Opera, Edge etc. ?

Cheers

Yandex should clean automatically with the chrome section,  but you may need to set a custom location.  Both how to do this and what browsers should  already be covered can be found

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

Thanks @Nergal

Maybe it's as you say.
But to be sure of cleanliness, when I asked here, I had already set the custom path as you suggest.

However the path of the Yandex temporary files
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Yandex\YandexBrowser\User Data\Default\Cache
it is different from that of Chrome.
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache.

I ignore if this path is stored in the standard settings of Yandex
