If you are like me that use the Windows Media Center for recording, you should notice that at times, you get a lot of recorded stuffs in your PC. Unfortunately, there is no option to batch delete these files, for me this was very frustrating, until I discovered the easy ways to delete multiple recordings in Windows Media Center.
This method is quite easy and I can’t imagine why Microsoft deliberately decided not to include an option to batch delete recordings in Windows Media Center. I also have a quick guide to set up and use iCloud on Windows.
Alright, in few easy steps, I will show you the methods that will work for you provided you follow this tutorial correctly.
Delete Multiple Recordings In Windows Media Center
- Go to My Computer in Win 7 or This PC in Win 8
- Open C:\Users\Public\Microsoft\Recorded TV
Now, once in you are in that folder, Recorded TV, you can batch delete redundant recordings. To do so simply hold down the CTRL key and use your mouse to select the recordings you want to delete. Satisfied with the selection? Hit the Delete key to delete the files.
If you want to delete the entire recording, simply hold CTRL + A to select all and hit the Delete key to delete all the files.
Recordings are sent to the Recycle Bin, you can also wipe the files from the Recycle Bin if you so desire.
This is how you delete multiple recordings in Windows Media Center. I hope this was very helpful.
