  1. Winapp2.ini additions

    Many thanks to all for the new and revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/496f3191fe63d674ca3f3365294f885b307c3fdf
  2. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for your quick reply and clarification. Okay, then we will split the entry. Unfortunately, CCleaner only deletes this file for the few Chromium-based browsers that CCleaner directly supports. If you need to use "CustomLocation", CCleaner does not delete the file. Therefore, we should keep these FileKeys.
  3. Winapp2.ini additions

    IMHO, the current name of the entry fits better because the *-journal files are typical cache and the *.ldb/*.log files caches download links, for example. CCleaner has been cleaning these files for a long time. But such entries have been added because CCleaner does not delete the files itself, so traces may be left. There are also some other such entries under Chrome and Firefox. This is already covered by the entry [Windows ShellBags *]. Is a separate entry necessary?

    Thanks for your reply and the revised entries. Thanks of course also to all others for their new or revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/69030c80e2ac9102c6a438d605ef7111ba8bbdd1

    Thanks for the revised entry, but did you see that the entry [Updates *] also contains FileKeys for other Chromium-based browsers? I think you just want to separate Google Update because it also updates other Google software, right? Then I suggest that we use the following entries: [Updates *] LangSecRef=3029 Detect1=HKCU\Software\BraveSoftware Detect2=HKCU\Software\CocCoc\Browser Detect3=HKCU\Software\Torch Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\CocCoc\Update\Download|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\CocCoc\Update\Install|*.*|RECURSE FileKey3=%LocalAppData%\CocCoc\Update\Offline|*.*|RECURSE FileKey4=%LocalAppData%\Torch\Update\Download|*.*|RECURSE FileKey5=%LocalAppData%\Torch\Update\Install|*.*|RECURSE FileKey6=%LocalAppData%\Torch\Update\Offline|*.*|RECURSE FileKey7=%ProgramFiles%\BraveSoftware\Update\Download|*.*|RECURSE FileKey8=%ProgramFiles%\BraveSoftware\Update\Install|*.*|RECURSE FileKey9=%ProgramFiles%\BraveSoftware\Update\Offline|*.*|RECURSE [Google Update *] LangSecRef=3021 Detect=HKCU\Software\Google\Update Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Google\Update\Download|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\Google\Update\Install|*.*|RECURSE FileKey3=%LocalAppData%\Google\Update\Offline|*.*|RECURSE FileKey4=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Update\Download|*.*|RECURSE FileKey5=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Update\Install|*.*|RECURSE FileKey6=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Update\Offline|*.*|RECURSE Google Update can also be found at %LocalAppData%\Google\Update\, e.g. if you install Google Chrome Canary.
  6. You can use the following methods to add other browsers: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/ccleaner-ini-files/how-to-clean-user-data-from-non-standard-mozilla-browsers And here's a short guide for Waterfox: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/49017-cleaning-waterfox-profile-historycache-with-ccleaner-win-7/?tab=comments#comment-287518

  8. Apply CCleaner in an External Disk

    That's right. You can't delete an entire drive, only files and folders. You can only use "F:\" if you change "File Types" from "All Files" to "File Types:" and specify the files you want to delete.

    There is no button, you must click the checkbox to enable cleaning of custom files and folders: Then you can add your files and folders here:

    I guess it should be LangSecRef=3022 (= Internet). For the readme simply click on the GitHub link in the first post. Edit: Sorry, LangSecRef for the category Internet is 3022.
  11. Winapp2.ini additions

    As far as I know, every subkey of \Profiles\ is a profile. The default profile name is Outlook, but you can also add additional profiles, e.g.: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Profiles\Outlook\ HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Profiles\Personal\ HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Profiles\Work\

I guess it will work for most Outlook users. Maybe @Winapp2.ini can add this feature in a future version of Winapp2ool.

    Thank you very much for providing most of the them! I think MS will certainly be more successful with the new Edge.

  16. Winapp2.ini additions

    Unfortunately, Piriform never updated the manual, so the manual still only mentions Mozilla-based browsers. But it also works for Chromium-based browsers. Correct, the section "Google Chrome" in CCleaner is responsible for all Chromium-based browsers at the same time. It is not possible to clean each of them individually. If you put only the file Winapp2.ini in CCleaner's program folder, only the entries of the file Winapp2.ini will clean the Brave browser. However, if you want a complete cleaning, with the built-in entries of CCleaner, you have to add the "CustomLocation1" in your ccleaner.ini.
  17. There are already some threads on this issue: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53697-cookies/ https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53571-ccleaner-does-not-see-or-delete-cookies-anymore/ Maybe this will help: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53697-cookies/?tab=comments#comment-305366
  18. Winapp2.ini additions

    The entries are listed under the section "Google Chrome", there is no separate section "Brave Browser". The entries always clean up all installed Chromium-based browsers at once. You should also add the browser to CCleaner using one of the following methods: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/ccleaner-ini-files/how-to-clean-user-data-from-non-standard-mozilla-browsers CustomLocation1=CHROME|path_to_user_profile: https://forum.piriform.com/search/?q=CustomLocation1=CHROME Example: CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default

    CCleaner's already built-in Site Preferences already cleans that exact file, at least in Firefox ESR Portable v60.6.1esr. That's right, thanks. After using the build-in entry, the date (and size) of the file changes. Unfortunately, the file will not be deleted. Question to all: Should we rename the entry to [Site Preferences *] and still add it for those who want to make sure that all traces are really removed? Your opinions are welcome.
  20. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the entries. In my tests the built-in entry "Firefox - Session" already cleans this folder completely.
  21. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the revised entry. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/3cde3abef95e59a5dbbf193e8c7c7e7d01f0cef3 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/30f6dc2c3e544c384887c09d87f17ea622140a75 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/a82bfb3616910b685514ec439ece079b225fb999
  22. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the update. I tested the extension and the Winapp2.ini entries [Logs *] and [Internet History *], formerly [History *], do not damage it. We fixed the entry [Logs *] some time ago and it now only removes usual logfiles. But I can confirm that the built-in entry of CCleaner [Google Chrome - Session] damages the extension. As a workaround, you can exclude the following folder in the CCleaner options: C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extension State\ Please report this bug under "CCleaner Bug Reporting": https://forum.piriform.com/forum/8-ccleaner-bug-reporting/. Thank you!
  23. Winapp2.ini additions

    Referring to the entry names you are using an old version of Winapp2.ini. Please update to the latest version.
  24. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks! Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/c8c6096cc27fa9e79360f2ac07cc8ef3b69c3dc5
  25. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks! IMHO we should continue to use [Xbox *], as the other apps are actually only hidden "sub-apps" of the Xbox app. (And if we add more "sub-apps" in the future, the name will be far too long.) https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=302&tab=comments#comment-302515
