Microsoft’s PC Manager is like CCleaner for your computer

Microsoft is working on a PC Manager application designed to improve the performance of your computer. Much like CCleaner, a beta version of Microsoft PC Manager includes storage management and the ability to quickly complete tasks and control apps that start with Windows.

Much of this functionality is already built into Windows, but this PC Manager app puts it all in one useful place. There’s even a browser protection section that makes it easier to change default browsers from what currently exists in Windows.

The storage manager feature includes the ability to manage apps or remove rarely used ones, and there’s also a full cleanup scan available or a scan to find large files on your drives. The process manager feature is a more streamlined version of the task manager so you can quickly kill processes that might be consuming RAM.

Pressing the main “boost” button will clear temporary files and free up memory, which might be useful on older PCs.

The public beta version of PC Manager appeared on an official Microsoft site, but the site is Chinese, which suggests that this application is designed for a very specific market. The app itself is designed for Windows 10 and later and is geared more towards laptops and low-spec PCs.

We reached out to Microsoft to comment on PC Manager and its plans for the app.
