Default Re: TEMP Folder

Check C:\Windows\temp. If it's not there, please specify your OS and architecture.

Default Re: TEMP Folder

\Windows\Temp are temp system files. That's where a lot of system wide installs house temp files.

If you're looking to clear out user temp files, open a command prompt and type:

cd %TEMP%
(case sensitive)

del *.* /f

Temp files are now gone
