Microsoft is planning to release PC Manager, a CCleaner-like optimization app for Windows 11 users, according to an official website for the program that is in Chinese but allows visitors to download a beta version of the app for testing. Screenshots shared online can confirm a handful of the app’s features, including the ability to clean up files with a single click and shortcuts to Microsoft Defender for virus scanning. PC Manager has reportedly been submitted to the Microsoft Store already, meaning that it could see a wide release soon.

From a Windows Latest report:

  • Computer maintenance – clean up files, remove apps, etc with a single click. Remember CCleaner speed-up feature? The idea is similar, but it’s very basic and it won’t clean your registry.
  • Manage startup apps – Disable startup apps with a single click to boost performance and startup time.
  • Manage and view running processes, and take action using Task Manager.
  • Manage your storage – recent files, temporary files, etc.
  • Scan for viruses with Defender.
  • Check for updates using Windows Update (Yes, this app is basically a hub of shortcuts to existing features).
