Is it safe to run %temp% to open the temp folder and delete all of the files sending them to the recycle bin?...

Yes. However, click first the 'Date Modified' heading twice to sort the files and directories in reverse date order and bulk delete starting from files slightly older than just the last couple of days. The recent temporary files are often still held open by programs and system processes and you cannot delete them without restarting.

If you do Shift-Del, the files will disappear without the intermediate step of going to the Recycle Bin.
