This has to do with my Windows 10 Pro Operating System.

In Disc Clean Up I see a locked icon next to Temporary Internet Files. Its locked and I can't delete the temporary internet files in it. How do I unlock it? Thanks

Has been a problem with Windows saving all worthless Web pages since the early Win 95 days. That cache can build to hundreds of megs of wasted space. Even gigs of wasted space! Some suggestions from MS..

Should be a small "gear" at the top right of the main page, for tools/options. Choose 'Internet options' and set to delete files on exit. But this will work only if you have used the resident browser. Any other programs that use it in the background as default will leave a lot of useless files until you manually delete them.

There's only the option to delete the browsing history on exit, not all the files. The folder itself is located here:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache
