Temp Cleaner Apps and Alternatives

There's no getting around it - temporary files, also referred to as junk files, are generated by most apps and OSes in use today.
Of course, temp files have their value as they help apps and your computer's OS run smoothly, however, the problem arises when they don't get deleted automatically after they are no longer needed.
As expected, after long periods of time, these files can end up taking up a lot of hard disk space, and users should take the appropriate means to remove them on a regular basis.
There's another, just as important reason why users should take into account deleting junk files. The older and larger the temporary files your computer has, the slower it gets, hence, deleting them will not only help free up much-needed HDD space but will also improve the overall performance by quite a bit.
Even though Windows has a built-in cleaner app designed specifically for this purpose (Disk Cleanup), there are faster, more convenient, and arguably more advanced third-party tools out there.
