Can I safely delete all files in my Windows 10 \temp\ folder?

Hi,

I'm running a Windows 10 Pro system. I'm trying to resolve a connection issue I have with Adobe servers. Can I safely delete ALL files located in my 'temp' folder i.e. C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Temp? I want to make sure there is nothing there that may be interfering with

Advice appreciated.

It should be fine. As long as you don't have programs running with open files in that folder. I would logon as a different user (admin), then delete that other user's TEMP files from there.

There are some files (Office and others) that will not delete. Leave these in place. You can delete all others as noted above. Most of them will just come back.

I have gotten used to what comes back and what I can delete.

Admin Tools, Disk Cleanup is a good way to delete old files. Works well. Use it at least monthly.
