Yahoo mail temp folders

  widdy 10:37 24 Jul 2013

I use Yahoo mail and on opening an e-mail attachment it displays that attachment and if I attempt to save it as whatever it displays a Temp folder with hundreds of sub folders apparently with not much in them. What are these folders and are they on yahoo or on my pc. Can I delete them safely and in bulk Thanks

Temp folders can safely be deleted. If any are necessary for the proper running of the PC, they would automatically be re-created on boot-up or re-start.

Sometimes when deleting a whole batch of Temp folders, one may get a message that a certain file/folder can not be deleted, you can ignore this, it means not-a-lot.

Many thanks for that. It seems that in this particular case there is not an easy way of deleting a batch of them I have tried marking the first folder and then with either shift or control buttons + enter it does not select the m all.

Don't know if this would work, but to delete a batch Highlight First one and Last one, then press Delete on Keyboard.

Forgot to mention, when highlighting first/last, hold down Shift or Ctrl.
