Add Disk Cleanup option in the Context Menu of Hard Drives
 
If you do the Disk Cleanup daily then you may need the more faster and short way to do it. Rather than look across the cleaner disk drives (in the properties of the disc), it is possible to add this option in the menu that appears after right clicking on a drive.

Method 1:
  1. Run the registry Editor, Start -> Run -> regedit.

  2. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDriveshell registry key

  3. Right click on shell and choose New -> Key . And give its name as Disk Cleanup.

  4. Now right click on the created Disk Cleanup key and choose New -> Key and give it name as command and set its value as cleanmgr.exe /d %1 .

  5. And you done, now you'll get the context menu option in your drives.

  6. That?s it. Now you will get Disk Cleanup the option in the context menu of hard drives.
