How to Clear Your Browser’s Cache.
Clearing the cache and cookies in your web browser is a necessary initial step for troubleshooting internet browsing issues. The cache is a feature that your browser uses to accelerate webpage loading, but it can sometimes cause conflicts with website updates as cached files may differ from what is coded into the site. By clearing the cache and cookies, we can confirm that any problems encountered are due to issues with the website rather than inconsistencies caused by using different browsers.
Most commonly used web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Edge, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox offer a keyboard shortcut to quickly clear the cache. To access the appropriate window, simultaneously press control + shift + delete while using the browser (On Mac, simultaneously press cmd ⌘ + shift + delete).
It’s crucial to note that after clearing the cache and cookies, you should close or quit the browser and then restart it.
