    What does CCleaner Application tab do?

    I, for the first time ever, just installed the title program (newest version 3.18.1707). I don't understand what the program does when you check the 3rd party programs under the Applications tab. Does it remove the listed program or something else?

    Before I run CCleaner, I have to know what to expect. I looked in Online Help and took the quick tour, checked the FAQ's but the explanation about the Application tab is not complete (as far as I'm concerned), at most it doesn't answer my question.

    Thanks in advance for helping me.

    Applications tab

    The sections and items that show up in CCleaner's Applications tab depend on which applications you have installed on your Windows PC.

    If an application or type of application has many features (for example, with Firefox you can delete cookies, clear the download history, and so on), that application will have its own section, and you can select specific areas you want to clean.

    If an application is simply listed in the Applications, Internet, Multimedia, Utilities, or Windows sections with no details, the cleaning process will typically clear out document history (MRUs), visited URLs, and temporary files for that application.

    Thanks Bruce, that's exactly what I needed to know. I search the website and failed to find the page your link directed me too. I'll need to search better the next time.

    Thank you Rode Runner but I dislike using zip almost as much as I disliked using dos (which was in use when I got my first computer) with Windows 95 as the OS.
    With zip I almost never know what to do with all the things that are unzipped (except the exe,txt, or doc ones that is). So, I'll pass on opening this one and remain uneducated.

    Gloria ...

    The zip file Roderunner provided the link to contains a single file ... the CCleaner Beginner's Guide. No need to be wary of downloading and opening it.

    FWIW, WinZip and 7-Zip are two of the handiest programs on my computer, and I don't know what I'd do without them.

    I have been unzipping files for years with no problems. The various zip programs just extract the files; they don't run them. And you can extract one file at a time. You don't have to extract all of them.

    Incidentally I still use an occasional batch file running from the command prompt. There are a few things you can accomplish in DOS, or command mode if you prefer, much more easily than in Windows.

    Thank you WFS, I never knew that all unzipped files didn't have to be unzipped. I thought that if the files came together, they belonged together. I'm getting smarter ever time I visit this forum.
