  • How to Clear Your Browser’s Cache


    Every web browser, whether it is Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer, will store images, web pages and other downloaded content. This collection of stored information is called your browser’s cache. Deleting it can not only help protect your privacy, but also free up space on your computer.

    In this step-by-step guide, you will learn how to clear browser caches from Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Opera.

    Internet Explorer

    1. Once you have opened up your browser, simply hold onto Control-Shift-Delete on your computer keyboard.
    2. A menu should appear with a range of options to choose from, check the “Temporary Internet Files” box.
    3. After you have clicked the box to the left of the option, press the “Delete” button at the bottom of the menu.

    Firefox

    1. Once your browser has loaded, click “Tools”.
    2. A drop-down menu should appear, find “Clear Recent History”, and click it.
    3. A small box should appear in the middle. Besides the “time range to clear” text, select from the drop-down menu “Everything”.
    4. Before you press “Clear Now”, be sure to click on “Details” and only have the Cache box checked.
    5. Click “Clear Now”.

    Safari for Mac

    1. Once the browser opens up, click on the “Safari” menu tap.
    2. Select “Empty Cache”.
    3. Simply press “Empty”.

    Safari for Windows

    1. Once your browser has opened, select the “Edit” menu.
    2. Select “Empty Cache”.
    3. Simply press the “Empty” button.

    Opera

    1. Once your browser opens up, select the “Tools” menu.
    2. Select “Delete Private Data”.
    3. Now press the “Details button”.
    4. If you don’t wish to remove stored passwords or cookies, remove the ticks next to them by simply clicking on the box.
    5. Press “Delete”.
