    Delete.jpg I am in dire need of more space, so, I would like to know what exactly these are and if I can delete these safely to free up some space. If not, can you suggest a few things I can get rid of safely? Thank you in advance.(y)

    I think they are something to do with pending updates for Microsoft office and they normally get deleted when the update is installed

    open any office program, for example word or outlook.
    select file, office account & update options, click the little down arrow
    select update now & see what happens
    I think after you apply the new update, they should go

    To get more space in W10 use the windows clean up options https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4026616/windows-10-disk-cleanup
