cleanmgr command line switches

When I run cleanmgr /? in the (Administrator) command prompt, I get the following dialog box...


I found the documentation from microsoft on switches SAGESET and PROGRAMFILESDIR.

What do the other switches do?

Thank you.


In the absent of clear information on these switches, if you want to run them you will see what they do.  Basically, they offer various cleanup options and different output results.  I tried on my computer and nothing untoward happened, but I think I now have a clean hard drive, and I am still able to type this message later too.

C:\Windows\System32>cleanmgr /tuneup:1

C:\Windows\System32>cleanmgr /verylowdisk


C:\Windows\System32>cleanmgr /lowdisk

C:\Windows\System32>cleanmgr /SAGESET:1

C:\Windows\System32>cleanmgr /SAGERUN:1

  • Create shortcuts with the command line switches

    I have three versions of Word on my computer. (I know, I'm a masochist).

    I would like to make a few shortcuts in Windows that would do this for me. However, I don't know how to add the command line switches. I used to be able to properties (similar to editing a .pif file) but it doesn't seem to be an option.

    You * need to locate executable files and create each shortcut via right click on the executable file.  Shortcuts Microsoft Office may not be "real" classical shortcuts

    Right click and change the shortcut.  In the 'Target' box, add at the end command line switch.

    For example... I found the 64-bit Microsoft Office 2010 Word executable here:
    «"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\WINWORD."» EXE ".

    and created a shortcut on my desktop.  The "target", said:
    «"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\WINWORD."» EXE ".

    I added the / a that you pointed at the end, the target is now:

    «"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\WINWORD."» "EXE" /a

  • import data with the command line switch

    Is it possible to automatically import data to a .pdf file? My idea would be a command line switch, but another way would be appreciated also.

    To explain myself better (my English is bad and I use a non-English version of Adobe Acrobat Reader):

    I use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and got a PDF with a lot of filelds. Now I can open the 'empty' file and import the data (.xml or .xdp format, I prefer .xml). It works very well.

    I would like to stress that this task "import data" is performed automatically when I run the file - so I think that a command line parameter, but also another (macros?) way would be OK.



    Open the FDF file instead. It must contain a key F name the PDF file.

  • command line switches

    From dreamweaver from the command line, is there a switch that specifies the file for it to open?

    For example, go just "dreamweaver myfile.html' seems not to do.

    No switch is required to provide the full path to the file (I used absolute)
    not tried relative)

    When the PIN to the taskbar in Windows 7, jumplist points 'New tab' and 'New window' ignores the data-profile command line parameter and open a new tab or a window with the default profile instead of the given one.

  • Does anyone know the VpxClient for "Use Windows Credentials" command line switch?

    I found the VpxClient switches for server (-s), the user (-u) and password (-p), but I want to get my password on my shortcut. I would like to have the shortcut for

    "C:\Program Files (x 86) \VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual" s - Server w

    in fact lanuch the client without me clicking on something else. BTW, I composed the '-w '; It does not in fact. I need to know the switch for 'session credentials using Windows '.

    "C:\Program Files (x 86) \VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual" s - Server u user password Pei

    works great for an ESXi username, but I prefer to use my Windows credentials without password in the shortcut; and the work of shortcut for multiple users.

Thank you! 

    You don't have the command line, FWIW. Just find the .exe file editor and make a shortcut to that and use it to start PES.
