Microsoft has made a PC Manager app for computers with Windows 10 or later. Even though PC Manager is first released in China, it can be downloaded and used by other people. Microsoft makes its own PC cleaner application so that it doesn't have to use third-party software. Some of us use programs like CCleaner, AVG PC Tune-up, Iolo System Mechanic, etc. to get rid of unnecessary files and speed up our PCs. This PC Manager also has a section for protecting your browser, which makes it easier to change the settings for your browser.
