I know it is possible to delete old log files with the help of the file explorer (C:\ AdwCleaner\Logs). It would be great, however, if AdwCleaner itself provided an option to delete such log files.

That option is already exist.

Go to Settings, scroll down and press Uninstall button. This will delete all AdwCleaner folders including logs.

No, this option does not exist. I don't want to UNINSTALL AdwCleaner. I'm just looking for an option to delete old log files. If you click the REMOVE button, this will also delete the quarantine, but this is not what I want.

Not quite what you are asking for; but I have a (quick and dirty, no checks) batch file that I run daily to clear/clean various things with one double-click, Adw logs being one of them.

If you are familiar with writing batch files the relevant line from my batch is:

echo Clear AdwCleaner logs.
del /q C:\AdwCleaner\Logs\*.txt >nul 2>nul

Thanks for your help, @nukecadYour batch file is a good workaround, but I still think it should be possible to get rid of old Adw log files with the help of Adw settings. It shouldn't be too hard to implement a user-friendly option that makes it possible to clear old Adw log files.

What, aside from the logs, does using the uninstall function remove?  I ask because ADWCleaner is never actually 'installed' in the traditional sense as it is a portable application for the most part (with the exception of the logs, of course, which are left behind for future diagnostics/troubleshooting).  The application isn't intended as an on-demand scanner to use constantly the way that Malwarebytes free is, though of course you may do so if you choose to; it's primarily a portable utility to be used when you suspect your system may have PUPs/adware installed and logs are saved for the same reason FRST leaves behind its previous logs: for malware removal helpers on public forums.

It removes the working directory (by default C:\AdwCleaner, but YMMV) only, as AdwCleaner doesn't use anything less than this working directory.

The ability to delete logfiles from the UI will come shortly 👍
