Loop: I.T. Non-Techie help, information and tips

  • Windows 10 bug

    There is an unresolved bug in Win 10, which has carried on to Win 11. This continuously creates temporary empty folders, which on one of my computers numbered 13,000. Temporary files and folders can take up very little room, and do no harm, but increase the time that scans take.
    The names of these folders start with tw, and end with .tmp. To find and delete these folders, copy the text below, and paste it into the Windows search box on the taskbar. Then click 'Best match', or the entry at the top. You may then see the files as in the attached image. You can then select all of them to delete.

    C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local
