Please refer to the following script:

#ensure we're running on windows 10 or newer first
if ((Get-CimInstance win32_operatingsystem).version -ge '10.0.0000') {
 
#Set StateFlags1227 setting for each item in Windows 10 disk cleanup utility
if (-not (get-itemproperty -path 'HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Active Setup Temp Folders' -name StateFlags1227 -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue)) {

}
CleanMgr.exe /sagerun:1227
}
exit


CleanMgr.exe runs windowed. I would like it to run silently, but acknowledging that this may not be possible, I would like to run it minimized by default so that, if I were to execute this script remotely, the end user would not encounter any popups. Thoughts?
