How to Delete SwapFile.sys in Windows 10?

Swapfile.sys file can be found both in Window 8 and Windows 10. Swapfile.sys file is a special kind of of pagefile which is used internally by system to make few paging operations more efficient. It is used to suspend/resume modern Windows apps. It was first introduced in Windows 8 along with pagefile.sys file.
