How to Clear Cache in Every Major Browser
Clear the cache in Chrome, Firefox, Edge, IE, Safari, and more.
A cache is a collection of snapshots and data from web pages you’ve visited in the past. The information is stored to make your internet experience run more smoothly and revisited web pages load faster. In time, the cache may take up a big chunk of your computer’s memory.
In most browsers, you can clear the cache in either the settings or options menu. The keyboard combinations Ctrl+Shift+Del (Windows) or Command+Shift+Delete (Mac) bring up the necessary deletion screen in most browsers as well.
While the keyboard shortcut works in most nonmobile browsers, the exact steps involved in clearing your browser’s cache depending on the web browser you’re using.
