Microsoft PC Manager More powerful than before and introducing several new features, including floating toolbars.This app is Microsoft's answer to all the third-party PC manager/cleanup apps that don't seem to be that useful these days.

You get a better overall design, including a vertical menu and multiple subsections, including a new toolbox section.Let's take a closer look at these features.


Microsoft PC Manager What are the new features of the app?

The Microsoft PC Manager application is still in beta.Previous app versions had two main sections: Cleaning and Security.But this update brings a new "Home" section that neatly arranges all the useful settings into tiles.It supports light and dark modes and adapts to default system themes.

In addition to the aesthetically pleasing touches, you get four separate sections: Protection, Storage, Apps, and Toolbox.You can restore the taskbar appearance and default applications in the "Protect" section.


The Storage section has improved file cleaning tools, including an improved Large File Identifier tool. Previously, you could only preview files in File Explorer, but now the program opens a new section for Large Files Subpage with multiple filter and scan options.


You can move or permanently delete one or more files directly from this window without opening File Explorer.The deep scan option is still there, and you can even access Storage Sense from the Microsoft PC Manager app.There is nothing new in the application management section.You can end processes, manage startup apps, and access the Microsoft Store directly.

The final section is the Toolbox section, which allows you to access multiple Windows tools, display a floating toolbar on the screen, and add custom links.
