Windows 7: Save History But Delete Other Temp Files

Save History But Delete Other Temp Files

A few time each week I remember opening a web page that looked interesting but that I failed to take notes about. I find searching my browsing history is often faster and more effective than trying to vonstruct or 'reconstruct' a search strategy. I don't want to deliberately delete my browsing history, but I'd like to get rid of other useless files. Is there a tool for this?

I just logged my OS/Programs drive with ZTree, reverse order sorted, and found over 1000 files containing 0 bytes. The first 55 were all in Chrome directories and I use SeaMonkey as my default browser.

User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/36.0 SeaMonkey/2.33.1
Build identifier: 20150321194901

thanks

You can do this with CCleaner Free.

Says Firefox but applies to Seamonkey as well (also my browser).

Thanks Ztrucker!

Learning what CCleaner will do is one more item on my list while my favorite helping hand at the end of my right arm is poking out of a sling
