E. Clear Your Temp Files

Every time we delete or uninstall an application on our system, it tends to leave behind a few residual temp files. These temp files pile up and can hamper the overall performance of your system. Therefore, you must delete temporary files after deleting any application or program on your system.

Also, these temp files tend to clog up your storage space. Windows 11 has many other temporary file types, including those leftover files after installing a new version, upgrade logs, error reporting, temporary Windows installation files, and more.

1. Right-click on the Start Menu. Select Settings

When selected, click on the option which reads Remove Files.

F. Run SFC Command

At times, your PC freezes randomly because it might have skipped or missed some files when you upgrade over to Window 11. Also, it might have installed a few corrupted files that can be causing your pc to freeze randomly. In such cases, running an SFC scan can help repair these files and fix the issue. 

1. Go to the Start Menu Type cmd and Run as Administrator

2. Inside cmd, enter the following command

sfc /scannow

3. Press Enter

Your PC will now start searching for missing, skipped, or corrupt files in the system and will repair them automatically. Restart your system post completion of the scan
