What, we back in the 90s now? In a proof that the more thing change, the more they stay the same, Microsoft is said to be working on a PC Manager application to help your mange your machine.
In other words, keep it in tip top shape and boost performance as needed.
There is no shortage of such apps and utilities in the world of Windows, with CCleaner being perhaps the most popular one around in the sea of such software that promise (and some deliver) on keeping your computer fast and more secure.
Whether Microsoft intends to compete with such programs like it did with third-party antivirus software remains to be seen. But at the very least, the upcoming PC Manager should help with management.
And this is exactly what the folks over at The Verge think.
Many of the features that this new app bring are already part of the Windows experience, but with Redmond building a dedicated application means that they will all be brought under one convenient roof for Windows 11 and Windows 10 users.
Microsoft claims that this app can clean up system debris, release occupied resources, and make your Windows as fast as new. It can also manage large files and free up your computer storage space.
At the same time, it can quickly detect computer abnormalities, solve system risks with one click, while detecting viruses and cleaning up garbage.
In fact, a public beta of this new utility has actually popped up on the company’s website over in China.
As the screenshots show, PC Manager could be a way to clean up temporary files and manage startup apps on your device, while at the same time monitoring resource usage. Of course, you also get recommendations from Microsoft such as switching to Edge and Bing.
Because, why not!
No indication when, or if at all, this new PC Manager app will officially launch for the general public. But this much seems certain that when it does, it will not be bundled with Windows 11 version 22H2, seeing as you can only download it manually.
