Microsoft developed PC Manager as an alternative to CCleaner to help users speed up and clean up their computers with a few clicks. Additionally, PC Manager can help detect any potential issues with the Windows operating system such as malware, viruses, and other security threats.

“It integrates Windows antivirus engine, comprehensively building a computer protection system,” Microsoft explained. “Based on user pain points, it provides a one-stop computer problem-solving solution, addressing issues such as malicious system tampering, insufficient computer space, system lag, and excessive pop-up ads, creating a native Windows system experience for users.”

Moreover, the app enables users to scan their Windows PC for various items, including temporary files, system logs, the recent file list, application cache, and browser cache.
