This is kind of a “duh” tip for anyone experienced with Windows, but many don’t know that it’s also present in Windows RT.
EDIT: You will need to start by turning on administrative tools. Go to Start Screen > Settings Charm > Tiles and turn on “Show administrative tools”. Next, go to your Start Screen, Slide in from the right and click on Search for “Disk Cleanup”, tap on the Icon.

After you’ve selected which files to delete, hit “OK” and wait for another moment.
