Clearing Browser Cache

Web browsers save or “cache” parts of web pages (like graphics) or even entire pages so that they will load faster in future. Sometimes it is necessary to clear the cache in order to delete this saved information, particularly if a web page changes "under the hood."

In Chrome:
  • Choose More Tools from the Chrome menu (3 dots, upper right), then Clear browsing data
  • Use the drop-down menu to clear “from the beginning of time
  • UNcheck all boxes except "Cached images and files"
  • Click clear browsing data

"Cookies" refer to saved data (saved usernames and passwords, form data) saved by websites. If clearing cache does not resolve a website issue, check the box for "cookies and other site data" and clear again. WARNING: make sure you know all of your passwords before doing this!
