    [GUIDE] How to Clear Your Browser's Cache ?

    Hi,

    this post is very useful and I found a very good article with almost all browsers.

    Hope you guys can find your browser and with this guide know how to clear your cache



    Your internet browser's cache stores certain information (snapshots) of webpages you visit on your computer or mobile device so that they'll load more quickly upon future visits and while navigating through websites that use the same images on multiple pages so that you do not download the same image multiple times. Occasionally, however your cache can prevent you from seeing updated content, or cause functional problems when stored content conflicts with live content. You can fix many browser problems simply by clearing your cache. This article contains instructions with screenshots on how to clear the cache for all major browsers.


    1 Open the settings on Chrome. Click the menu icon in the upper right corner of the browser to the right. Click settings on the bottom of the menu.

    • A faster way to get there is to press ^ Control+⇧ Shift+⌦ Delete on a PC, or if you're using a Mac ⇧ Shift+⌘ Command+⌦ Delete.



    2 From settings, click "Show advanced settings...". It's located at the very bottom of the settings section.


    3 Scroll to the privacy section and click "Clear browsing data".


    4 Select "Empty the cache". Uncheck all other options to avoid deleting browser history, cookies and other things you may wish to retain. Change "Obliterate the following items from" to "the beginning of time".


    5 Press "Clear browsing data". You are done!

    Chrome v1 - v9



    1 Once your browser is open, select the Tools menu (the wrench in the upper-right corner) and select Options (Preferences on Mac).



    2 On the Under the Hood tab, click the Clear Browsing data... button.


    3 Select the Empty the cache check-box.



    4 You can also choose the period of time you wish to delete cached information using the Clear data from this period dropdown menu.



    5 Click the Clear Browsing Data button.




    Internet Explorer 9, 10, and 11


    1 Once your browser is open, click the gear icon at the top right to open theSettings menu. Then, select Safety and Delete Browsing History....



    2 Select Temporary Internet Files. You will also need to uncheck all of the other boxes, especially Preserve Favorites website data. This option makes the window also delete objects from websites in your Favorites folder, which is necessary to completely clear your cache.



    3 Click the Delete button near the bottom of the window to perform the operations (i.e. clear your cache by deleting temporary files).



    4 Your computer will work for a moment, and then the process will be complete. You've successfully cleared Internet Explorer 9's Cache!




    Internet Explorer 8


    1 Once your browser is open, click the Tools menu. Or, optionally you may simply press ^ Ctrl+⇧ Shift+⌦ Delete to open the Delete Browsing History window (and skip step 2)


    2 Click on Delete Browsing History...


    3 Select Temporary Internet Files.


    4
    Click the Delete button near the bottom of the window to delete your temporary files (i.e. clear your cache).

    5 Set your cache to delete every time you close Internet Explorer. If you want the browser to automatically clear the cache whenever you close it, close the 'Delete Browsing History' window, select 'Internet Options' from the Tools menu, and check the 'Delete Browsing history on exit' checkbox.
    • Note: IE8 has a "feature" which retains some cookies even after you clear your cache if you do not UNCHECK the "Preserve Favorites Website Data." If you truly need to clear your cache, you will want to uncheck this!




    Internet Explorer 7


    1 Open IE 7 and click the Tools menu. Click the Delete Browsing History link at the top.


    2 Under the Temporary Internet Files heading, click Delete files...


    3.
    Click Yes when you see the prompt asking if you are sure you want to delete all temporary files.



    4 Alternatively, clear your cache for just the current page you're visiting. Press and hold ^ Ctrl on your keyboard, then Press F5 or click on the Refresh button (square button on the toolbar with opposite-facing arrows).
