Make a Zorin app to take care of common maintenance tasks

I have to save this cmd to my clipboard and use it quite often to do some cleanup on residual config files.

dpkg -l | grep '^rc' | awk '{print $2}' | xargs sudo apt-get --purge remove -y

it would be helpful if there was a Zorin MX App that could run/schedule cmds like this and autoclean/autoremove, clean caches and logs on an ad hoc basis or daily/weekly/monthly interval automatically for me.

Any other cleanup cmds yall can think of that are useful for an app like this or users to run every once in awhile to clean up their systems? Thanks!

This sounds like you would like to create a Cron Job:

I do not know of any common GUI app that does this... You might check Zeit, though I have never used it and cannot vouch for it.
