    First, backup all your data.

    Always run a full backup before running apps like Bleachbit. The settings you use may removed things you want.

    Hi,

    Bleachbit can be downloaded from here - https://www.bleachbit.org/

    Once installed, you can find Bleachbit in the Applications menus; there will be two entries for the program: - Bleachbit and Bleachbit as Admin.

    Please see the screenshots for the options you should not use

    I have been using Bleachbit for many years and would advise not to use the following settings as they are experimental:

    Bleachbit
    Deepscan
    .DS_Store
    Backup Files
    Temporary Files
    Thumbs.db
    VIM swap files across system
    VIM swap files under user profile

    Firefox
    Passwords

    Google Chrome
    Passwords

    System
    Free disk space
    Localisations
    Memory

    -

    Bleachbit as Admin
    Deepscan
    .DS_Store
    Backup Files
    Temporary Files
    Thumbs.db
    VIM swap files across system
    VIM swap files under user profile

    System
    Free disk space
    Localisations
    MemoryBleachbit 1.jpgBleachbit 2.jpgBleachbit as Admin.jpg

    Caution
    Please do not use the options I have outlined as they could very well do harm to your PC and I will not be held accountable for your actions.

    You can get it from the official repositories, which is easier than from a random website (even if that's the official project website).

    There are many happy users of bleachbit. There are also many threads on this forum from people who applied too much bleach to their bits. I've always managed to keep my system clean without bleachbit. You don't need it, but some people like it anyway.
